- Anthony Joshua is talking tough ahead of his ‘undisputed’ bout with Tyson Fury
- The 31-year-old has boasted that he is ready to take off the head of the Gypsy King
- Fury earlier vowed to knock his countryman Joshua out in the third round
Anthony Joshua has warned Tyson Fury ahead of their possible bout slated for 2021, saying he will rip the head of the Gypsy King off his shoulders.
All five heavyweight titles in boxing are split between the pair with Joshua holding the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO titles while Fury is the holder of the WBC belt.
Joshua is talking tough ahead of the fixture and having missed out on Fury’s Rolex about ten years ago, the 31-year-old says he is ready to knock out his rival.

UK outlet SunSport are reporting that back in 2010, the Gypsy King visited the 20-year-old Joshua’s Finchley ABC gym for some sparring.
Fury said he planned to take it easy on the unknown kid but Joshua heard about the reward on offer for KOing him and caught him with a stunning uppercut that was the very start of their rivalry.
Ahead of their potential £500-million two-fight 2021 deal, AJ recalled:
“Before that spar, Fury said ‘if anyone can beat me up or knock me out, they can have my Rolex watch’.
“All I wanted was his Rolex watch. I was hungry then and I am even hungrier now.
“Now I have some boxing IQ and passion, I know it will be a great fight.
“There was a Rolex on offer then 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.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has vowed to knock his countryman Anthony Joshua out in the third round.
The 32-year-old made the comments in a short clip posted on his official Twitter page after watching his fellow Briton beat Bulgarian opposition Kubrat Pulev at the O2 Arena.
It was Joshua's second straight win after reclaiming his IBF, WBA, and WBO titles from Andy Ruiz Jr about a year ago in Saudi Arabia.
It was like a one-way fight as the 31-year-old dominated most part of the match before eventually finishing the Bulgarian off with a spectacular right-hand in the ninth round.
