Tyson Fury says ‘big cuddly baby’ Anthony Joshua poses no threat and Deontay Wilder is his most dangerous opponent – The Sun

TYSON FURY landed a hilarious dig on heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua, calling his fellow Brit a “big cuddly baby.”

With promoters Eddie Hearn and Frank Warren desperate to get a fight on between the pair, the trash talk has been turned up.

But, instead of turning nasty, the 33-year-old Gypsy King took aim at AJ’s shock KO loss to Andy Ruiz Jr and the cautious points win he needed to reclaim his WBA, IBF and WBO belts in December.

And, as a father-of-six, Fury knows what he is talking about. Back in 2020, the WBC king said: "One hundred per cent Joshua's not dangerous, at all, he's like a big cuddly baby.

"Why would I be a believer in him when he got knocked spark out by Andy Ruiz?

"A last-minute replacement opponent, who turned up 300lbs or whatever, 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 been beat has knocked them out.

“I'm the only one, me the Gypsy King – the unbeatable, untouchable, unbreakable champion."

Joshua faces two obstacles if he is to secure a blockbuster fight with Fury.

First, he has to regain his belts from Oleksandr Usyk, after he was outclassed by the 35-year-old Ukrainian in 2021.

He also has to convince Fury to come out of retirement – with the Wythenshawe fighter seemingly enjoying a life after boxing already.

Despite that potential challenge, Fury still insists AJ would not be the hardest fight available to him as Wilder, 36, remains a dangerous KO artist.

He said: “I don't see anyone out there that can challenge me. 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."
