Anthony Joshua Reveals Biggest Career Threat
Heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua, 30, has said that boxing legend Mike Tyson, 53, is the one he fears to combat in the ring.
Jameela News reports that Joshua who reclaimed his lost titles; WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO in Diriya, Saudi Arabia on Sunday, said he could never match up to the younger Tyson.
The champion who debuted his boxing defeat to Andy Ruiz on June 6 at Madison Square Garden in New York where he lost all his belts told SportingLife that Mike Tyson would have battered him.
His words, “Mike Tyson would have battered me!
“There was no way I could have taken on that guy. I would have taken that paycheque. You know what I did against Klitschko in that 6th round when I took that dive? I’m joking.
“I would have taken a dive against Tyson. He was a beast. I give all credit and respect to Tyson. Even though Tyson is going on like 50 now, I still remember Tyson as the young, young 21-year-old.
“He was that good and made such an impact in the sport of boxing.”
