Tyson Fury posted a couple of Tweets warning Anthony Joshua that he’s going to smash him up and knock him out “cold”. In the latest post, Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) says he’ll quit in his corner if he doesn’t stop him by the third round.
The WBC champion is set to fight the IBF/WBA/WBO champion in the summer months. However, his promoter Bob Arum said that the Saudi deal that promoter Eddie Hearn had been talking about has turned out to be a “Mirage.”
Arum is now saying he’s considering putting together a deal with former WBC champion Deontay Wilder next if the Joshua fight doesn’t get done.
“I’ve just been thinking another message for AJ. AJ, if you go more than three rounds with me, I’ll quit in the corner because that’s how confident I am in taking you cold out in the first two, three rounds,” said Tyson Fury on Twitter on Wednesday night. “You’ll be out like a light switch.”
