Anthony Joshua wants to sit down with Tyson Fury's dad for Guinness and talk boxing after Deontay Wilder fight claims
29th May 2021

ANTHONY JOSHUA praised John Fury for his criticism of son Tyson's fight with Deontay Wilder – now the Watford star wants to have a pint and talk with the former fighter.

The Brits were due to do battle to unify the heavyweight division in August, only for the Gypsy King's camp to be drawn into the trilogy contest.


Following the saga, Tyson's dad, John, slammed the 'leeches' in the 32-year-old's camp for changing course.

And his claims have earned respect from Joshua, who has revealed his desire to discuss boxing over a Guinness with the 57-year-old former boxer.

AJ posted on his Snapchat, via talkSPORT: "I've got a lot of time for this interview, good listen.

"Some massive statements have been made if you listen carefully.

"I would want to sit down with JF, have a Guinness and talk fighting."

Joshua is now set to face Oleksandr Usyk while Fury takes on Wilder for a third time, on July 14 in Las Vegas.

It means fans will have to wait for the heavyweight champions' showdown, which John Fury had also wanted to see.

Tyson's dad told BT Sport that he fears the opportunity has been lost with 'complacency' and 'fair play' an issue when facing Wilder again.

Whether he gets complacent, makes a mistake… It's got every chance of going wrong out there.

He stated: "Anything rushed is no good, and that's been rushed.

"He was fighting AJ. I wanted him to fight AJ. I've no interest in Deontay Wilder, so why has he got to fight Wilder?

"I told him on a phone conversation, 'Chuck the belt in the bin. Let them have it. Come back and fight AJ on the 14th of August, like was planned'."

Fury Sr added: "I'm just concerned whether Tyson can raise his game for Wilder.

"Whether he gets complacent, makes a mistake, I don't know. It's got every chance of going wrong out there.

"Because I don't like how it's been handled.

"It's been badly handled and that's just my opinion, no-one else's."
