SPORTS SHORTS 236: ANTHONY JOSHUA WILL HAVE DIFFICULTY BEATING TYSON FURY SAYS DAVID HAYE


PhilBoxing.com




Former two division world champion David Haye believes a fight with Tyson Fury would be a very difficult work for Anthony Joshua. Last Saturday, Fury knocked Deontay Wilder out in the eleventh round of their trilogy fight, dropping Wilder three times in that match.

* * *

Last month, Joshua lost his WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO heavyweight titles when he lost unanimously to Oleksandr Usyk, the former unified cruiserweight champion.

* * *

"I think from the strength of that performance, it would be very tough for AJ. Having watched AJ’s last performance against Usyk, the shots that Fury took down the pipe from Wilder, he was able to get back up and rough him up," Haye was quoted by BT Sport.

* * *

"The fact that AJ stood at range with Usyk having a boxing match… is AJ going to beat Fury in a boxing match? I don’t believe so." After the very impressive victory, Fury declared himself as the very best fighter of his generation.

* * *

Fury has beaten Wladimir Klitschko by unanimous decision, Derek Chisora by TKO, Deontay Wilder twice by TKO, Steve Cunningham by KO, Otto Wallin by unanimous decision, and lots of other opponents in dominating fashion.

* * *

"I can only be the best fighter of my day, and I've done that. I'm the best fighter of my era. I'm the generation fighter, I actually feel sorry for all these guys who have had to fight me," Fury said.

* * *

"Because I'm in the dressing room at home I'm not nervous - you know it's a boxing fight to me. I feel sorry for them because they're fighting the fighter of the generation, that's for sure."

* * *

David Haye of London, England became a unified cruiserweight world champion in 2008, winning three of the four major world titles, as well as the Ring magazine and lineal cruiserweight titles.

* * *

In 2008 he moved up to heavyweight, winning the WBA title in 2009 after defeating Nikolai Valuev of Saint Petersburg, Russia, who was 9 inches taller and 99 pounds heavier than Haye.

* * *

Together with Evander Holyfield and Oleksandr Usyk, Haye is one of only three boxers in history to unify the cruiserweight world titles and become a world heavyweight champion.

* * *

Deontay Wilder refused to shake hands with Tyson Fury after being knocked out in the 11th round in Las Vegas last Saturday. Wilder refused to accept Fury's peace offering after his savage knockout defeat due to “serious issues” with the British champion still existing.

* * *

That's what Wilder's trainer Malik Scott explained. Scott said he wanted to shake hands with Fury’s team, including fellow trainer SugarHill Steward.

* * *

Fury announced he was troubled by Wilder’s humiliation and even called him “an idiot”, but Scott has now explained the attitude of his fighter after the loss.

* * *

“Deontay looks at Fury as a man he had serious issues with concerning things he felt and certain allegations that were out and things that he’d seen with his own eyes,” Scott was quoted by ES News. “Tonight, after they released all that energy, he still felt the way he felt."

* * *

Wilder went to the University Medical Center immediately after the fight, having suffered a broken hand. “He saw the doctor but everything is cool. He’s got a busted lip and broke his hand... broke his finger or his knuckle or something like that," said Scott.

* * *

“Life goes on, Fury I assume will get the [Oleksandr] Usyk shot which would be good. I really don’t want Deontay talking about boxing or doing nothing to do with boxing for quite some time, I want him to get some rest after this."

* * *

Wilder did not say a load of excuses unlike after the second fight. He simply accepted that Fury’s extra weight was overpowering. “I did my best, but it wasn’t good enough tonight,” he said. “I’m not sure what happened.

* * *

“I know that in training he did certain things, and I also knew that he didn’t come in at 277 pounds to be a ballet dancer. He came to lean on me, try to rough me up and he succeeded.”

* * *

Brooklyn Nets coach Steve Nash said their team understands that Kyrie Irving cannot play for home games because he remains unvaccinated for COVID-19. A vaccination law in New York City prevents Irving from playin home games unless he receives the vaccine.

* * *

Similar regulations would restrict the All-Star guard from their games at San Francisco, Los Angeles and against the New York Knicks. "I think we recognize he's not playing home games," Nash said. "So we're going to have to for sure play without him this year. So it just depends on when, where and how much."

* * *

The team hopes for a change in ordinances to allow Irving to play in home games, but there's no assurance that the policy change will come at any time in the NBA season that starts on October 19. The Nets begin their regular season that day at reigning NBA champion Milwaukee's home.
