Via Charles Brun: Tyson Fury thinks Tony Bellew is just a “fanboy” for Anthony Joshua saying he feels AJ deserves a 50-50 split because he’s more of a draw than he is.
Bellew made some good points on Tuesday, saying Joshua is the bigger star, which is why WBC heavyweight champion Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) is choosing to try and set it up. a fight against him despite the backing of AJ returns the loss to Oleksandr Usyk.
Given the way Fury is pushing for his bout with Joshua and seemingly completely desperate for this one, it confirms in Bellew’s mind that he’s the bigger star.
Bellew says he takes a pay-per-view stance, which suggests Joshua is a bigger name than Fury, who is said to have damaged his popularity with frequent mentions. to retirement and oddly talked about wanting to fight Thor, Francis Ngannou, Manuel Charr, and Derek Chisora.
“No, because Bellew is an AJ fanboy, isn’t he,” Tyson Fury told talkSPORT when asked if he was surprised when Tony Bellew said Anthony Joshua deserves a 50-50 split.
I have to disagree with Fury. Bellew feels Joshua deserves the 60-40 score better, as he is the more popular fighter of the two.
Furthermore, Bellew argues that Joshua shouldn’t be in the fight unless it’s a better deal. Fury’s help on November 26 or December 3 is another reason for Joshua not to be in the fight.
“Why does the best boxer in the world, me, call AJ. The reason is because the little guy Usyk does bodybuilding and doesn’t want smoke and fire with the Gypsy King.
“Who better now to fight AJ? I was the biggest attendee in the UK, with 94,000 at Wembley.
“That’s the day [November 26th and December 3rd], and if they’re not good, then he doesn’t want this fight,” Fury said of Joshua. “I prefer November 26th.
“Anything can happen when you have two huge heavyweights in the ring,” Fury said when asked to predict his bout with Joshua.
“I always say what happens when you fight Joshua. He’ll be out in six or seven rounds if he lasts that long.
“He got a little better, but he needed to do those five times out of what he did,” Fury said of Joshua’s performance in the rematch against Usyk.
