Anthony Joshua Revels in Tyson Fury’s Loss to Oleksandr Usyk

Anthony Joshua on Tyson Fury

Anthony Joshua has expressed his satisfaction over former WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury’s recent defeat to Oleksandr Usyk on May 18th. Joshua has long criticized Fury for his disrespectful behavior towards opponents and fellow fighters, believing Fury often insults others to elevate himself. According to Joshua, Fury has avoided challenging fights, and when faced with a strong opponent like Usyk, he was exposed. Joshua is confident Fury will lose the December 21st rematch against Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs).

Joshua’s Relief at Fury’s Defeat

“I’m glad Fury isn’t the undisputed champion,” Joshua said via talkSport. “He’s very disrespectful and steps on people to make himself feel good.” Joshua also pointed out that Fury’s biggest win was against a nearly 40-year-old Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, suggesting Fury would struggle against top contenders as he ages.

Fury’s Trash Talk and Self-Serving Motives

Joshua criticized Fury’s derogatory comments towards Usyk, calling him a “rabbit” and “middleweight.” He believes Fury’s behavior is harmful to the sport, as other fighters might emulate his disrespectful conduct. While Fury’s trash-talking might be a strategy to sell fights, Joshua feels it often crosses the line. “Fury will step on you and make you look like a guy who’s just walked out of a pub. Then he goes and gets spanked; he deserves it,” Joshua stated.
