    Tyson Fury claims Anthony Joshua is ‘finished’

    Tyson Fury claims fellow heavyweight and former world champion Anthony Joshua is “finished” in boxing.

    Joshua lost his IBF, WBA and WBO titles in a shock defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr in New York on June 1.

    After the fight, Fury had sent a message on Twitter that urged his fellow Briton to “rest up, recover, regroup and come again”.

    But this week he told BBC Sport: “When a man doesn’t want to be there once, he will always do it and it’s hard to come back from.

    “He did it that night and I don’t think he will come back from it. Finished. Ask any top trainer who has been around the sport a lifetime. When he got to the ring I saw he didn’t want to be there.

    “Everybody thought that man could beat me. In what world could he ever beat me? What were people seeing?

    “I don’t know what people were looking at as I don’t know in what world he could have beaten me.”

    Joshua’s seventh-round stoppage by Ruiz came as a huge surprise as his opponent had been given barely one month’s notice for the fight and weighed in at over 20 pounds heavier than the Briton.

    But Fury, who shed around 10 stone in a bid to reestablish himself as the dominant heavyweight in the world, insists body shape is no indicator for success.
