Joshua fu­ri­ous with Tyson Fury

The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Sport -

LON­DON. — An­thony Joshua has dis­missed the sug­ges­tion he needs a state­ment win against Alexan­der Povetkin and slammed Tyson Fury’s sug­ges­tion he is the true cham­pion of the world heavy­weight box­ing divi­sion. Fury still holds the lin­eal heavy­weight ti­tle hav­ing been the man to beat Wladimir Kl­itschko and is yet to fight since that vic­tory. Joshua is the IBF, WBO and WBA (Su­per) cham­pion and is pre­par­ing for a Wem­b­ley show­down with Alexan­der Povetkin, and does not con­sider Fury the true king of the divi­sion. “I am the No. 1 in the divi­sion, I ain’t got to show any­thing,” said Joshua. “Name me a fighter that has a bet­ter record than me af­ter 22 fights? Ever since the am­a­teurs, non­stop I have been on top of my game. I proved my­self time and again at the top level. If peo­ple aren’t sat­is­fied with it now, they never will be. Look at Floyd May­weather.

“They are never happy with him and he is one of the great­est of all time. His­tory is all that mat­ters. I will prove my­self.” — Metro.
