Two-time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has vowed to 'smoke' countryman Tyson Fury when they eventually square up in the rings.
Both fighters were billed to face off in a much-anticipated unification bout this summer but it has been called off with the Gypsy King ordered to honour his trilogy agreement with Deontay Wilder.
Joshua insisted that he has done all he could to make sure a fight between them happen contrary to claims by Fury that the Olympic gold medal winner is ducking their fight.
Fury and the Bronze Bomber will face off in their final fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on October 9th and the winner will take the title home.
What Anthony Joshua said
The 31-year-old while answering questions from Gary Neville's The Overlap and quoted by Boxing Scene said:
"He's a fighter, isn't he. What's the worst that can happen? You get hit. He's been doing it for years [telling people I won't fight him], however, I just know on my end, and my management team and my promoter - we've done everything we can to make this happen and as long as I'm champion, I'll compete with anyone. I've got a tough challenger coming up now. A great fighter.
"Without the belts? I rate that. That's what I'm talking about. We'll fight, 100 percent, let's do it. I'll smoke that guy. I will. It's annoying.
"For me, I don't really get into the Twitter back and forth, because it's Twitter fingers. Anyone can sit behind a computer and talk.
"Let's be real, let's be honest. Let's let the people know. You're the one that let the fans down because everyone seems to think."
Why Anthony Joshua slammed Deontay Wilder?
Legit.ng earlier reported that Deontay Wilder has been slammed by Anthony Joshua who claimed that the Bronze Bomber is not in the category of elite fighters.
This latest attack by Anthony Joshua is coming with days to the fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury which is expected to hold next month.
In their previous two meetings, Deontay Wilder failed to beat the British fighter which forced him to activate the trilogy clause.
