Tyson Fury says he will ‘knock Anthony Joshua out in two rounds’ after Pulev stoppage


Tyson Fury has called out Anthony Joshua following the WBO, WBA, IBF and IBO heavyweight champion’s victory over Kubrat Pulev.

Joshua knocked out Pulev in the ninth round at Wembley Arena in London on Saturday night, and Fury – the WBC heavyweight title-holder – was quick to react.

Speaking in a video on Twitter, Fury predicted he will knock out Joshua within two rounds if the pair meet in 2021 as expected.

“Well there you go, everyone, Anthony Joshua just s*** himself live on television,” Fury said in a video on Twitter.

“He got asked: ‘Did he want the fight [against me]?’ And he went around the bushes and put his a*** on the edge.

“I want the fight. I want the fight next – I’ll knock him out inside three rounds.

“Can’t wait to knock him out.”

Fury also wrote: “Anthony Joshua it’s a matter of time…..  I’ll spank you like I did Deontay Wilder, 2/3 rounds.”

Fury stopped Wilder in the seventh round when the pair met in February, over a year after their controversial split draw.

Britons Joshua and Fury are expected to fight twice in 2021, with AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn saying on Saturday night that he would look to make the bout “straight away”.

Hearn predicted Joshua will knock out ‘The Gypsy King’.
