Why Anthony Joshua Should Not Fight Against Tyson Fury – Boxing Legend, Evander Holyfield
Anthony Joshua must forget all about the idea of fighting Tyson Fury and concentrate on a serious contest… that is according to former boxing icon, Evander Holyfield.
American former professional boxer, Evander Holyfield, who reigned as the undisputed champion in both the cruiserweight and heavyweight divisions, has advised Nigerian world heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua to avoid fighting Tyson Fury.
Joshua recently defeated Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley, while Fury also beat the veteran in 2015, but Fury has not fought since the shock win over Klitschko, though he has been attempting to goad Joshua into a big money bout.
However, former world champion, Holyfield feels Joshua fighting Fury would be the wrong move. “Joshua has to think about his image. He doesn’t need to be against someone like Fury who jokes a lot and is seen in a different light,” Holyfield told the Sun on Sunday.
“Joshua has talked about becoming the first billionaire fighter and if he is serious then he will need the big-name fights. And Fury really isn’t one of those for Joshua.”
Holyfield also adviced 27-year-old Joshua, if he gets a rematch against the 41-year-old Klitschko. “It would be a bona fide rematch, but Joshua has to avoid starting to have an ego,” Holyfield added.
“He must avoid thinking ‘I don’t have to work as hard this time, I’ve proved I can beat him and I can do it again’.”
