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

Hard-fighting Falconets Bow to Spain

first_imgUNDER-20 WOMEN’S WORLD CUPNigeria’s Falconets ended their campaign at the ongoing FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup in France Thursday with a quarter final 2-1 defeat against Spain.Two first-half goals from Aitana Bonmati and Patri Guijarro set the stage for La Rojita semi final berth at the Stade Guy-Piriou in Concarneau. A second half fight back by Christopher Danjuma’s wards yielded a goal by Peace Efih but that was not enough to cancel out the advantage of the Spaniards as they held on tight till the end of the game.Spain that made their early advantage count by breaking the deadlock before the quarter-hour mark through captain Bonmati. Her fine left-footed shot from the edge of the Nigeria box gave goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie little chance of preventing Falconets falling behind.Bonmati nearly had a second with a free-kick that struck the underside of the Nigerian crossbar and bounced away to safety, while Eva Navarro forced a point blank save from Nnadozie moments later.Spain eventually doubled their lead before the break, with Guijarro scoring her fifth goal of France 2018 after getting on the end of Maite Oroz’s free-kick into Nigeria’s box and scoring from close range.Having struggled to create much in the first half, the Super Falconets responded with a goal just before the hour mark.Efih’s forward run saw her pick out Rasheedat Ajibabe on the left. Her low shot forced a diving Catalina Coll to direct the ball into the path of an unmarked Efih, who duly converted into an empty Spanish goal.Though they halved their deficit, Falconets were unable to find an equaliser, as Spain saw out the remainder of the contest to reach the last four of this competition for the first time.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
