Tyson Fury can’t resist poking fun at Anthony Joshua with Christmas cracker joke

Fury appeared on Capital FM and was quick to poke fun in typical Fury fashion at his heavyweight rival in a trivial game.

Tyson Fury can't resist poking fun at Anthony Joshua with Christmas cracker joke

Tyson Fury couldn’t help but poke fun at fellow British heavyweight Anthony Joshua when appearing on Captial FM.

The ‘Gypsy King’ is fresh off the back of defeating Dereck ‘War’ Chisora for the third time in his career, in a huge event at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

Fury, 34, was defending his WBC and Lineal heavyweight titles on the night, as he scored a 10th round TKO over his former adversary.

Whilst it was the battle-hardened Chisora who stepped in the ring with Fury, it could have been Joshua, given that was the original plan for the December 3rd date.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, that fight fell out of bed for what seems like the 30th time, as fans had to begrudgingly settle for a one-sided beat down from the six foot nine champion.

The year may nearly be over, but Fury couldn’t resist getting in one more jab (not literally) on his long-time British rival following his interview with radio station Captial FM.

In a video where Fury was tasked with pulling a Christmas cracker and reading out a boxing-specific joke.

He read out: “Why has Anthony Joshua never married?”

Before answering: “Because he’s too scared of the ring! There we go guys!”

The pair had signed on to an undisputed clash due in the summer of 2021, but the fight never went through as former Fury-foe Deontay Wilder took the champion to court over claims he was due a trilogy fight due to a stipulation in their contract.

Fury then came through in a ‘Fight of the Year’ candidate to finally knock out the American, as AJ went onto face the Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk twice.

Joshua lost both by points decisions and lost his unified heavyweight titles, with the second bout landing in Saudi Arabia in August.

It’s unclear when AJ will fight next, with promoter Eddie Hearn claiming he will return in the early part of 2023, but there’s no frontrunner as it stands.

We could see him re-ignite his rivalry with Dillian Whyte, who himself came through a tough 12-round win over previously unbeaten Jermaine Franklin in late November.

Whereas for Fury, all eyes are set on an undisputed clash against Usyk, with reports claiming it will land between late February and mid-March, most likely taking place in the Middle East.

As far as a potential fight between AJ and Fury goes, it’s never out of the question given how big a fight it would be, not only for British boxing, but for the sport as a whole.

AJ has to find a way to get back to winning ways and force himself back into contention, whilst Fury faces off against Usyk and potentially stablemate Joe Joyce in the summer, with a winter bout not fully out of the question.
