Anthony Joshua fires shot at Tyson Fury over next fight against Otto Wallin
Anthony Joshua has indirectly fired a shot at Tyson Fury regarding his next fight against Otto Wallin.
Following his defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr in June, AJ criticised the ‘Gypsy King’s’ win over Tom Schwarz and said he wished he could go back to fighting ‘easy opponents’ like that.
Andy Ruiz Jr claims he knows Anthony Joshua’s game plan for rematch
Now, Fury’s next bout has been confirmed against Sweden’s little-known Wallin for September 14 in Las Vegas and Joshua has once again had his say.
When asked whether he’s still determined to become undisputed heavyweight champion, the 29-year-old took the opportunity for a dig.
He told Sky Sports: “I’m not focusing on that anymore.
“I’d had 22 fights and was talking about being undisputed. What am I going to do after? Go and fight Otto Wallin?”
AJ must now rematch Andy Ruiz Jr to attempt to win back the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles before even thinking about pursuing Deontay Wilder’s WBC belt.
He continued: “It was like I was coming to the end of my road already, worrying about undisputed.
“I became heavyweight champion, I unified the division twice, and now my goal is to become two-time heavyweight champion of the world.
“Once I achieve that, I can look at becoming undisputed champion.”
