'I can’t lie, both p***ies, both losers but I just see [Joshua] getting chinned, to be honest' - Says Tyson Fury About the Joshua vs Wilder Bout

WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury has shared his thoughts on the highly anticipated bout between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, a showdown expected to occur in early 2024. Fury, who has twice defeated Wilder to secure and defend the WBC crown, offered his perspective on this much-discussed matchup.

Following a year-long hiatus from the ring, Wilder returned with an impressive first-round stoppage of Robert Helenius, and now appears poised to face another British heavyweight star in Anthony Joshua. The Joshua vs. Wilder fight has been a subject of speculation for several years, initially touted as a clash that would crown the first-ever four-belt heavyweight champion and the first undisputed ruler of the division since Lennox Lewis in 2000.

Despite both fighters losing their titles in the interim, the fight continues to generate significant interest within the sport, with many considering it the most exciting matchup that can be made today.

During a media scrum with Boxing Social in preparation for his upcoming fight with Francis Ngannou, Fury provided a candid response when asked about his prediction for the Joshua vs. Wilder bout, stating, “Both p***ies, both losers, you can’t lie about that. I can’t lie, both p***ies, both losers.” In this instance, Fury did not declare a winner.

However, just a few months earlier, Fury had expressed a different sentiment in an interview with Boxing Social, suggesting that Joshua would be victorious, saying, “Do you need me to answer that? I think we all know what happens. I’d love for AJ to knock him out because Wilder’s a little b**ch. He’s a moaning p**sy, forgive me for my language … But I just see [Joshua] getting chinned, to be honest.”

Despite earlier optimism about the matchup, recent developments have raised doubts about whether the long-anticipated clash will come to fruition. Matchroom Promoter Eddie Hearn has indicated a willingness to explore alternative venues to Saudi Arabia, previously considered a likely host for the event. Hearn has not ruled out the possibility of Joshua facing a different opponent in December if a deal is reached soon.
