Fury Explains Why  Wilder Is Tougher Than Joshua

Tyson Fury maintains that Deontay Wilder was a tougher opponent than Anthony Joshua would be.

The Gypsy King stopped the Bronze Bomber when the two faced off for a second time in Las Vegas back in February.

Fury forced Wilder’s corner to throw in the towel in the seventh round.

It was redemption for the 31-year-old with many seeing his draw against the American in December 2018 as a fight he deserved to win.

Joshua is now seen as Fury’s next obstacle, should he win a potential trilogy fight against Wilder.

But the Gypsy King doesn’t anticipate the Olympic medalist posing much of a threat after seeing him lose his undefeated record to Andy Ruiz last year.

“One-hundred percent, Joshua’s not dangerous, at all. He’s like a big cuddly baby,” Fury told ESPN.

“Why would I be a believer when he got knocked spark out by Andy Ruiz? A last-minute replacement opponent … who turned up 300 pounds or whatever it is, he didn’t train, and Anthony Joshua couldn’t do any good with him in the rematch.

“He doesn’t have anything, he couldn’t hold a candle to ‘The Gypsy King’.

“There’s only one heavyweight out there, there’s only one undefeated world champion. They’ve all fallen by the wayside, the fellow that hasn’t gotten beat, has knocked them out!

“I’m the only one! Me – ‘The Gypsy King,’ unbeatable, the untouchable, unbreakable champion.”

Fury has also decided, after concluding “there isn’t much else to do”, that he will continue fighting until he is 40 – a further nine years.

“I’m going to fight on ’til I’m 40 years old,” he added.
