Tyson Fury’s dad John says ‘frightened’ Anthony Joshua will quit before facing his son and would be in tears if they met – The Sun

TYSON FURY'S dad believes Anthony Joshua is "frightened" of his son and will quit before facing the Gypsy King.

Fury Jnr, 31, sensationally destroyed Deontay Wilder on February 22 to extend his unbeaten record and claim the WBC heavyweight title.

Wilder is expected to take up the option for another rematch which would take place later this year.

But after AJ has fought Kubrat Pulev in the summer, most boxing fans expect to see the two heavyweight champions go head to head.

It would be one of the biggest sporting events in British history with all the world titles on the line – Fury's WBC and lineal crowns as well as Joshua's WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts.

Former bare-knuckle fighter John Fury, though, reckons Joshua is too scared.

He said: "I don’t think he will [fight Fury] because he’s too frightened.

"He’ll retire before he faces Tyson Fury. The Gypsy King will retire him without even fighting him, and I’ve said it first."

Fury Snr believes his boy is in a different league from Joshua and would destroy the Watford star, insisting he would be left in tears.

He added: "You know the aliens are light years ahead of us in brainpower, that’s how my son is in front of Joshua in [terms of] ability.

"He [Joshua] can’t do it! He’s got slow feet, he’s got a few fast hands, he goes 1,2, left-hook, chin stuck in the air.

"You’ve seen him, he’s blown out of his a** when he gets a bit of pressure put on him. Tyson will do more than pressurise him!

"He’ll be crying after four rounds, tears will be rolling down out of his eyes like marrowfat peas.

"[He'll be] on the floor, end of. Give me them belts back that you’ve stolen you bum. That’s it."

Just last week, the Gypsy King's dad told Good Morning Britain he wanted his son to hang up his boxing gloves and retire.

He said: "I want my son to retire now. He's done enough. It's been an uphill battle for him. He's done enough. I want him to pack it in now.

"I think it's in the back of his mind. He can't do anymore. He's won every professional title. Enough is enough. There's more to life now. He's given it his all.

"He's got no more to prove. He's proved he's been a worthy champion from this country. He's been 13 years as a pro and he's always been the opponent.

"He's 32 years old. He's got a young family and I do believe his children deserve their father."

Fury's wife, though, wants to see her husband take out Anthony Joshua to unify the heavyweight division and then call it a day.

Speaking in an interview with the Daily Mirror, Paris said: “I’d like him to beat Anthony Joshua and then stop.

“He’s in the ring with supreme boxers and it is a dangerous sport. We both know the risks.

“If they put all the belts on the line it would be such an amazing fight. I’d like him to take that one fight and retire undefeated.

“He can’t go on forever, he can’t go undefeated forever. I wouldn’t like to see him continue for too long and get hurt.

“I wouldn’t like to see him lose his record chasing money or fame. He doesn’t need that. He’s already cemented his name in the history books.”

Just a little cake to celebrate bringing back the WBC belt. @gypsyking101
