We’re just a month into 2021, and Tyson Fury (30–0–1, 21 KOs) is ready to make a strong statement to the global boxing fraternity.

The WBC heavyweight champion of the world is slated to be featured in a historic- highly anticipated super fight with none other than the IBF, IBO, WBA, and WBO heavyweight titleholder Anthony Joshua this year.

The fanbase may be split on who will have the upper hand inside the squared circle, but for Fury himself- it will be a one-sided affair, as he makes it clear that Joshua won’t just be boxing him, but something far, far more difficult.

Speaking to boxing scribe Gareth Davies, Tyson Fury oozed confidence as he strongly believes he has the advantage over AJ in every department, even when it comes to mentality.

“I’ve got a bigger heart, tougher, mentally and physically stronger. I punch harder, everything’s in my favor. When I take it to them, they can’t deal with it,” Fury stated.

Facing the 32-year-old, as the British pugilist himself iterates, would feel like having a brawl with the apex predator of the dinosaurs.

“It’s like wrestling a T-Rex. They can’t win. I’m indestructible,” the undefeated heavyweight stalwart went on, “I can’t be beaten, if I’m injury-free and active there is no losing.”

It hasn’t been too long since the world saw the bloody affair between Fury and Deontay Wilder in their rematch back in February 2021 for the WBC belt.

Now a year after proving his domination over Wilder, Fury insists the scenario will be just the same with Joshua.

“[I’ll fight Joshua] just like I did with Wilder. They said he said he was going to box and move, what did I do? Straight at him, bombs all the way through until he got stopped,” added Fury. (H/T BoxingScene)

Fury vs Joshua is expected to take place sometime between May and June this year, while Top Rank CEO Bob Arum recently claimed that the talks about the location has reached ultimatum, and also added that both fighters are estimated to pocked a whopping $100 million each.
