Don’t Fight Fury, Holyfield Warns Joshua

Don’t Fight Fury, Holyfield Warns Joshua

by | 24th July 2017

Anthony Joshua must forget all about the idea of fighting Tyson Fury and concentrate on a much more serious contest, according to former boxing icon Evander Holyfield.


Joshua has been linked with an all British bout with Fury the next time he steps into the ring, with both camps talking up a potential showdown.


The two men have been trading insults ever since Joshua’s triumph over legend Wladimir Klitschko back in April, with Fury keen to settle the score.


Fury has not stepped back into the boxing ring since, and has been marred with a series of controversies including failed drugs tests and poor physical condition.


Joshua is yet to officially announce his next fight, but Holyfield believes picking Fury would be a huge mistake.


The reigning world champion is most heavily tipped to take on Kubrat Pulev, should he fail to arrange a rematch with Klitschko.
