The Gypsy King reckons Joshua was scared of being spanked on TV
Joshua publicly accepted the offer, which came in the wake of his loss to Oleksandr Usyk, although hasty negotiations over the long-awaited domestic dust-up failed to bear fruit.
But Fury firmly the Watford Warrior ducked him, telling BoxingScene: “He’s a coward.
“If Joshua was gonna fight me, he would’ve took like $40 million to do it on the 3rd of December.
“And instead, he s**t himself and run away like a little b***h.
“But I don’t blame him because I was gonna spank his little ass all over the TV.
“And he wouldn’t have been able to walk around with his muscles and all that s**t.”
Fury believes Joshua is content with suffering a split-decision defeat to Usyk in their Saudi showdown.
The Gypsy King said: “He’s happy now that he can say, ‘I lost a split decision to a middleweight.’ He’s happy with that.
“But if he gets carved up off the canvas, and you have to scrape him up with an egg flipper, he can’t walk around with [confidence] then because he’s absolutely destroyed.”
Fury, 34, will be back in action tonight in a Tottenham trilogy fight with Derek Chisora – whom he owns two wins over.
But he’s refusing to underestimate Del Boy, saying: “He [Chisora] done very well against Usyk.
“And may I say, who the hell is Usyk?
“People didn’t know his name until he beat the bodybuilder the other day.
“He was a little, small heavyweight who wasn’t going to do anything against AJ when Chisora fought him.
“But then he stepped up and beat the big bodybuilder and now all of a sudden, he’s the killer. I don’t think so.
“Listen, I rate Derek Chisora as highly as I rate Usyk, and I will train as hard for Derek as I will for any man in the world.
“If I didn’t, I would have to be an absolute idiot – I will not underestimate Derek Chisora.
“God forbid I got beat, it won’t be for the fact that I had an injury or I didn’t train hard enough, it would be the fact that I lost to a better man on the night.

“We’re going to have a fight and that’s it. It’s going to be a good fight too, because he doesn’t shy away and I’m running nowhere, so someone is getting chinned.”
Joshua, meanwhile, is planning to return to the ring in “late March” – with a fight against former foe Dillian Whyte a distinct possibility.

There are seven types: Left Hook (right hook), Right Hook (uppercut), Cross (cross), Straight, Overhand, Underhand. Each punch has its own technique. Some punches are more powerful than others. A strong uppercut for example requires a lot of force. A straight punch on the other side requires less power, but is more effective than other punches.
There are also different combinations. These are combinations of punches which work together to achieve a goal. An entire combination could have several parts. For example, a combination of a left and right hook will result in damage to the opponent’s jaw.
To defend himself from being attacked, a boxer uses his entire body. He does this by using his legs, arms, elbows, hands, knees and feet.
To defend against kicks, a boxer should use his legs. After receiving a kick, he will raise his leg and move away from the attacker. If the attacker is coming from the front, he will bend at the knees to avoid getting kicked on either side. If the attack is from the side, he will bend his knees to avoid being kicked on the side.
Because they cause great pain, elbow strikes are extremely effective. You can either deliver an elbow strike directly, or indirectly. Directly means that you hit your opponent with your forearm while indirectly means that you hit him with another part of your arm.
Boxers use their hands to block incoming blows. Boxers raise their fists to block incoming blows and then move in the direction of the attacker’s attack. They then make contact with their attacker’s fist.
Boxers should bend their knees when receiving blows to the abdomen, stomach, or chest. Knee strikes can be used to defend yourself.
When attacked, a boxer should step back and deliver counter-attacks. He can then gain distance from his opponent. A boxer must also maintain his balance when responding to an opponent’s counter-attack.
Boxing effectively requires a boxer to have a good stance. How he defends his self will depend on how he stances. It determines where he will face his opponent and how he will position his body. Boxers have many options for stances. Here are some of the more popular ones:
- Low stance
- High stance
- Southpaw stance
- Western stance
The Body Movement
To win a fight, a fighter must move around the opponent. This means changing your speed, position and rhythm.
Rotating his arm to increase the puncher’s reach is a key part of boxing. You can rotate at different speeds depending upon the punch.
The effectiveness of a combination depends on the timing of each individual punch. A combination is good if it starts with a strong punch then ends with a weaker one.
Sparring is a form of boxing that aims to improve your skills. Boxers learn to train their mind and bodies during sparring sessions. In conclusion, the purpose of sparring is to learn how to fight and not get hurt.
To sum it all, boxing requires patience and dedication. To be a better boxer you need to train hard.
