– Tyson Fury has claimed that he will make a light work out of Anthony Joshua
– The British heavyweight are expected to meet sometime in August in Saudi Arabia
– The 32-year-old also said that he wants to fight more than once this year
Tyson Fury has stated that he he would hit Anthony Joshua in the face repeatedly to knock him out when they finally meet for their heavyweight unification clash this year, The Sun.
The most anticipated heavyweight boxing clash is expected to hold in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia in August in a yet to be named date.
All four belts in the division will be put on the line when the Gypsy King and AJ come neck-to-neck in the squared circle.
However, Fury has remained in the dark over negotiations with the fight worth to be around £200million, but he says he is as confident as ever.
Fury told ESPN:
“It’s pretty simple – hit him in the face a few times and he’ll fall over.
“He doesn’t have the biggest heart, he hasn’t got the most resilience and he’s not the hardest to hit.
“When I land it’s gonna be over quite quickly.”
The 32-year-old also revealed that he wants to be active this year after making just one fight for himself happen in 2020.
The WBC champion was asked if Joshua will be his opponent and he said:
“I hope so.
“I’m hoping and praying it’s going to be AJ but I’m not going to wait around forever.
“I need to be active, I need to keep busy, and it’s up to Top Rank to make that happen.
“They’re my promotional team and I’m sure they’re going to keep me busy this year.
“I need two fights this year, regardless of who it’s gonna be, let’s make it happen.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Andy Ruiz has reversed his decision about the outcome of the heavyweight clash between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, Daily Star.

All four belts including the WBA, IBF, WBO titles held by Joshua and the WBC strap round the wait of Fury will be put on the line.
