“He just ran away all night, it wasn’t a good fight … it really was a load of ***”: Tyson Fury battles rival Anthony Joshua for the way he defeated Andy Ruiz Jr in a heavyweight title match
- Tyson Fury was far from impressed with Anthony Joshua’s latest show
- Joshua defeated Andy Ruiz Jr. in December to reclaim its heavyweight titles
- Fury said that Joshua’s negative tactics made the fight a bad spectacle
Tyson Fury has hit on heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua by insisting the performance of his fellow Brit against Andy Ruiz Jr. was a ‘load of s ***’.
Joshua was praised for his defensive display against Ruiz Jr when he showed that he could outsmart his opponent instead of going out completely for a knockout.
Fury was criticized by Joshua when the Gypsy King played a similar performance against Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, which led to the undefeated fighter calling his rival.

Anger is cited as to tell The sun: ‘Everyone has to do what they have to do to win a fight.
“But if it was s *** when I was doing it, it would be double s *** when he did it, because it was much worse.
“He just ran away all night, it wasn’t a good fight, it was really a load of ***.
“He ran away terrified all night, and when he stood still for two seconds, he was rocked on his boots.”

Fury, who faces Deontay Wilder in a long-awaited rematch in Las Vegas on February 22, rubbed salt in the wounds by suggesting that Joshua lost his aura after his shock defeat by Ruiz Jr. in June 2019.
He said: “I don’t think any of the fighters in the world are worried about AJ anymore, his bubble has jumped well.
“Nobody cares anymore about AJ and they don’t talk about Wilder, if I burst his bubble.”
