Sport Update: “I want to take Tyson Fury’s head off his shoulders” – Anthony Joshua

World Heavyweight Boxing champion, Anthony Joshua has stoked fires of rivalry with Tyson Fury, for the first time after beating Kubrat Pulev early December.


 According to Joshua, he wants to ‘take Fury’s head off his shoulders’ and settle a score over an old Rolex promised to him by Fury after their famous 2010 spar .


Joshua also revealed he’s targeting seven more years at the top and he also confirmed there’s been progress in the past week over the proposed £200m showdown in May 2021 between him and Fury which would be one of the biggest events in British sporting history.


Joshua’s comments come after an audio leaked this weak in which Fury, now the WBC champion admitted AJ gave him ‘a killing’ in sparring in 2010.


That sparring session came with the promise that if Joshua or any other heavyweight could beat Fury, they could take his Rolex, although the watch was never given to Joshua, who was 20 years old then.

  "I want to take Tyson Fury

With a super-fight between the Brits now closer than ever to materialising, Joshua, 31, said: ‘All I wanted was his Rolex watch. He said before that spar (to Boxing News), “If you can beat me up or knock me out, you can have my Rolex watch”.

‘I was hungry then and I am even hungrier now. It was a good spar. I didn’t really know too much, it was just passion. Now I have some boxing IQ and passion, I know it will be a great fight.


‘There was a Rolex but now there is an even bigger pot of gold at the end of this rainbow and I want to take his head off his shoulders when that fight happens.’

Joshua, the IBF, WBA and WBO champion, added: ‘After the Pulev fight I didn’t want to do any interviews – less talk and more action. I stood by that. But now that we’re talking about it, a week or so after, and I’m ready, I’m keen. If that fight happens I’m sure that I’ll win. How close are we? I promise you conversations are happening. We’re definitely looking at the landscape. But until you hear it from me, don’t buy into anything.

‘I’m taking my time – because there has been a lot of back-and-forth for years. I’ve been chasing this road to undisputed and when the time is right I’ll announce it and I’ll have my mind fully focused on the job at hand.


‘The offers will be made, substantial offers. I’m looking more optimistically as if it will happen to be honest with you. He should take this fight with both hands.

‘I promise you this: I will put in a serious offer to fight Tyson Fury and if he’s serious himself, he will take it. If he’s not I will fight (Oleksandr) Usyk and leave it there.’

Heavyweight boxer, Usyk is among the problems around the fight for the undisputed title, given the Ukrainian is the mandatory challenger for Joshua’s WBO belt.

With the WBO currently holding Joshua to his obligation to fight Usyk next, Joshua could have to vacate the belt in order to complete negotiations with Fury. 

Asked about giving up one of his titles, Joshua said: ‘The belts do make it special but I feel like the cries from the public are just for me to fight Tyson Fury.


‘I am the sort of guy who will let my team just put a social media poll and whatever the fans vote, I will do. If they want to see me fight Fury, and I have to relinquish… There is nothing more in it than me wanting to compete against the best.


‘If that is Tyson Fury, then fine. If they want me to fight Usyk, and get him out of the way, then fine. I believe I will beat Usyk and then Tyson Fury can happen at the end of the year. Either way, I am just doing my next couple of fights next year on what the public wants me to do.’

In terms of his future, Joshua indicated he has a point in mind for when he will retire.

He said: ‘I have a time frame, I want to go to around 38.

‘I am not just looking at Tyson Fury, but how long I can give to the sport. What more do I have to give? I am young and fit, I don’t do anything else so boxing is fun for me and keeps me busy.

‘Tyson Fury is a good challenger, someone to help me progress, he will be a great learning fight. And, once that is done, I will go on competing with the best, challenging myself and making history.’

‘Take your frustrations out of my page’, Bobrisky laments bitterly over hateful comments on his Instagram Page

Idris Okunneye, also known as Bobrisky, a Nigerian crossdresser, has expressed her dissatisfaction with the daily inflow of abusive comments on her social media profile.

Bobrisky wondered why some people leave abusive comments on his page despite the fact that they were not required to do so.

Bobrisky went on to say that he recognizes that many people are filled with hatred, poverty, and other negative emotions, but that they should not vent their frustrations on her page.

In his word: Is not all the patients in Yaba are exactly mad, many people on Instagram need their brain checked, you followed an account on ig nobody forced you too yeah!!! And all you do is drop hate comments on that person’s page daily… who force you to follow that account?

To start with i don’t know you, I understand many of you ur life is full of hate, poverty, and many more… but take ur frustrations out of my page. Did anyone force you to follow my account ? I feel personally if you don’t like any of my post you can skip it or unfollow and go ur way, d point I don’t get it is where you come and drop hate comments everyday . Sis/bro life is not that deep honestly enjoy it .
