Joshua furious with Tyson Fury
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.
