Anthony Joshua questions Tyson Fury’s popularity and insists Gypsy King would only sell out Wembley by fighting him

Anthony Joshua has told Tyson Fury that the only way the Gypsy King will sell out Wembley is by fighting him.
The two heavyweight rivals are set to face off in a huge all-British unification bout next year, if Joshua can overcome the dangerous Kubrat Pulev next Saturday.

Speaking to talkSPORT last month, Fury expressed his desire to fight the Watford-born boxer TWICE next year and Joshua has no intention of dodging the challenge.
In fact, AJ has questioned Fury’s popularity and told the Sun: “Tyson Fury is a talented, talented guy and he deserves all the praise he is getting right now but it is interesting when you talk about his popularity.
“Because if Fury could have sold out 90,000-capacity stadiums, then he would have done. But he never has had the ability to attract those large numbers, not until he fights me.
“I have had those sorts of crowds against Wladimir Klitschko and Alexander Povetkin at Wembley.
“I will fight Fury because in 50 years time, people will remember your character and I always want to be remembered as a risk-taker.

“I fought for the world title in my 16th pro fight and even though people will say Charles Martin wasn’t a great champion — and he wasn’t — that win put me in the company of great fighters.
“Then I beat [Wladimir] Klitschko, a great champion, still early in my career.”
Fury does not believe the magnitude of the occasion will be justified as he recently told the Wow Hydrate YouTube channel that ‘AJ’ is his ‘perfect opponent.’
“The easiest opponent I think would be Anthony Joshua just because he’s tailor-made for me,” Fury explained.
“If ever I could build a perfect opponent I’d be building him.”
