Heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, has said that he should not be compared with Tyson Fury as he has achieved so much within a shorter time frame compared to Fury.

Speaking to GQ Middle East, Anthony said;

“Being world champion, with all those knockouts, you do feel kind of unstoppable.

“But realistically, in boxing terms, I’m way ahead of where I should be. I’m working at such a quick pace. I shouldn’t even be in a position where I’m mentioned in Tyson Fury’s era.

“He’s five or six years ahead of me in terms of turning professional. In fact, when he was turning pro, I was just putting on my gloves for the first time.”

“Tyson needs educating. All of us athletes do.”

“We often didn’t go far in school, so a lot of our comments and actions aren’t great. But let’s talk about him as a boxer.

“I don’t find him intimidating and I haven’t seen him do anything in the ring where I think, ‘this guy is going to be a massive threat’.

“He’s talented and he’s awkward, and that’s often enough to get you quite far in life.”
