ANTHONY JOSHUA reckons Tyson Fury is just jealous of his six-pack ahead of their Saudi undisputed summer showdown.

The 6ft 9in Gypsy King likes to accuse AJ of being more of a bodybuilder than a boxer, because the Watford ace is always shredded with muscles.

And WBC champ Fury, who ballooned up to 28st while banned from the sport over doping and battling mental health problems, claims he has been downing 12-pints-a-day in camp and will quit their clash if he has not won inside three rounds.

But Watford’s WBA, IBF and WBO king believes his undefeated curvaceous rival would love the chiselled look, if his genes would allow it.

Speaking on Troy Deeney’s podcast, AJ said: “The man will talk about drinking pints and say he’s not interested but yet he wants to look chiselled.

“He’s training the hardest he’s ever trained, he’s the skinniest he’s ever been.He wants to have a good body, he wants to be well prepared.

“But if I have a good body, chiselled and trained, I’m a bodybuilder.

“Tyson Fury would do the exact same thing if he could. It’s all psychological warfare. What they call me is what they want to be.

“He wants to have a six-pack, that’s why he’s training as hard as he’s training right now, why he looks so chiselled, why he’s in America training.

“It’s just psychological warfare to make me not want to believe in myself.


“However, I understand what this is all about and everything he says, I am everything he wants to be.”

Joshua, 31, also believes Fury, 32, is trash talking to try to convince himself that their August battle will be an easy night’s work.

He added: “The reason why he’s saying he’s drinking 12 pints is because he knows he could never do that to fight me, he knows what type of fighter I am.

“If I told you, ‘I’m drinking 12 pints, I ain’t worried about them,’ you know I’m running 12 miles more than I’ve already run before, you know I’m not drinking 12 pints.

“You know that’s how serious this challenge is, you want to make it seem so small, that’s how big you know this challenge is gonna be.

“He knows. I don’t need to talk about Tyson Fury, I don’t need to belittle the man.

“But you’re talking to me, I know I’m the man of this division and I will be for a long time.”
