Tyson Fury unfazed by Joshua's threats, says he's a big cuddly baby

- Tyson Fury is confident of beating fellow Briton Anthony Joshua in a unification fight

- The Gypsy King was crowned the WBC heavyweight champion two months ago after beating Deontay Wilder

- Fury remains the only boxer in his category yet to be defeated

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury seems unfazed by fellow Briton Anthony Joshua, saying Deontay Wilder remains his toughest opponent.

The Gypsy King overcame the American boxer in the seventh round of their second fight last February at the MGM Grand Arena.

Wilder's camp was forced to throw in the towel after seeing their man battered to the point of bleeding through his ears.

However, the 30-year-old Briton aimed a dig at his countryman who was beaten by Andy Ruiz does not pose any kind of threat to him.

Although Joshua bounced back six months later to beat the American-Mexican to reclaim his belts, Fury describes him as a 'big cuddly baby'.

"One-hundred percent, Joshua's not dangerous, at all. He's like a big cuddly baby," Fury told ESPN.

"Why would I be a believer when he got knocked spark out by Andy Ruiz? A last-minute replacement opponent ... who turned up 300 pounds or whatever it is, he didn't train, and Anthony Joshua couldn't do any good with him in the rematch.

"He doesn't have anything, he couldn't hold a candle to 'The Gypsy King'.

"There's only one heavyweight out there, there's only one undefeated world champion. They've all fallen by the wayside, the fellow that hasn't gotten beat, has knocked them out!

"I'm the only one! Me - 'The Gypsy King,' unbeatable, the untouchable, unbreakable champion."

Fury has also decided, after concluding "there isn't much else to do", that he will continue fighting until he is 40 - a further nine years. "I'm going to fight on 'til I'm 40 years old," he added.

"I've been thinking about it, and there isn't much else to do anyways. So yeah, I may as well keep fighting. I don't see anyone out there that can challenge me anyway.

"I just flattened the best one out there. The toughest opponent out there is Deontay Wilder, and we all saw what happened to him the last time out."

Legit.ng earlier reported that two-time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua says he knew boxing was his calling the night he slept in the gym.

Years later, the British-boxer of Nigerian descent has now become a force to reckon with having won all but one belt in his category.

Although he suffered his first-ever defeat in June 2019 after losing in the seventh round to American opponent Andy Ruiz in the United States.
