Tyson Fury’s record is ‘laughable’ in comparison to Anthony Joshua, says promoter Eddie Hearn | Boxing News

first_imgHearn said: “AJ has consistently proved that he will fight all-comers – mandatory challengers, unified champions, future hall of famers.“Anybody, and now he’s doing it again, and that’s why when you talk about Usyk, he will fight Usyk no problems at all, but he wants to fight Tyson Fury.“He wants to prove he’s the best heavyweight in the world and undisputed or not, we will do everything we can to make sure it is. Not one person can have any doubt after that fight, who the baddest man on the planet is.” Joshua believes victory over the ‘dangerous’ Pulev could set up huge fights “Fighting for the WBC would be an honour. It’s a prestigious belt, it’s one that I’m keen on getting my hands on.“When the time is right, the opportunity will present itself.”Referring to Pulev, Joshua added: “He wants the titles and he wants to beat me.“That’s what he possesses – hunger and motivation. I’ve got to take away that motivation and suppress that confidence.“That’s how you beat somebody, by breaking their soul.” Tyson Fury’s list of opponents is “laughable” in comparison to Anthony Joshua who will prove himself as “the baddest man on the planet”, says promoter Eddie Hearn.- Advertisement – Tyson Fury has delayed his return to the ring Tyson Fury has delayed his return to the ring

Ekundayo ‘enjoys’ training with Anthony Joshua

first_imgNigerian boxer, Larry Ekundayo is delighted to share the same gym with World Heavyweight Boxing champion, Anthony Joshua at the Finchley and District Amateur Boxing Club in United Kingdom. The International Boxing Federation (IBF) European champion, who is hoping to bring his title defence to Nigeria, is also listed by the Commonwealth Boxing Council as one of the contenders for the Commonwealth Welterweight title held by Chris Jenkins. In a chat with Sportinglife.ng, the 38-year-old, who defeated Nathan Hardy in his last fight at the York Hall, Bethnal Green in London in February, said training at the same gym with AJ is an amazing experience. “I had a wonderful time training in the same gym with AJ. Even though we did not spar together because we were in two different weight categories, he is always an inspiration,” Ekundayo told Sportinglife.ng on Wednesday.Advertisement The Natural, as he is fondly called also uploaded after-training pictures with the the two-time unified world heavyweight champion on his Instagram account with the caption, “It’s great training alongside my brother today Anthony Joshua. Massive thank you to uncle Foleys Wisdom and the boys for having me today.” Joshua on the other hand is currently preparing to fight Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev in a mandatory defence of his titles after winning them back from Andy Ruiz Jr, although a date for the bout remains unknown after the original date was postponed by the coronavirus outbreak. Joshua’s road to success cannot be completed without the mention of his former boxing gym Finchley and District Amateur Boxing Club.
