Following Anthony Joshua’s shocking defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr earlier this month, heavyweight rival, Tyson Fury has said Joshua’s career is over.
Fury left nothing unsaid in his latest assessment of AJ during an interview this week.
Speaking on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, he said, “When you claim to be the world’s best fighter and you’re built like Anthony Joshua and you get in there with a short little fat guy and get knocked out… curtains, where I come from.
“You’ve got this guy who’s knocking out everybody, he’s took this other guy at a few weeks’ notice, he was a last-minute replacement, he goes in there and gets knocked out.

“He doesn’t even look like he wants to be in there for the fight, by the way. And then everyone’s making a million excuses, oh this happened.”
Recall that Joshua went into the bout with a 22-0 record, 21 of which were knockouts, and he was the huge favourite to continue his unbeaten career.
But ‘little man’ Ruiz conjured up one of the biggest shocks in heavyweight boxing, beating the Brit by TKO in the seventh round.
