Tyson Fury slams Anthony Joshua for fighting ‘midget’ Carlos Takam, before making startling revelation

TYSON FURY has slammed Anthony Joshua’s performance against Carlos Takam labelling the 36-year-old as a ‘midget’… before making a startling revelation.

The 29-year-old is targeting a return to boxing in 2018 and insists if the Olympic gold medallist struggles against a smaller opponent, he has no chance against the ‘Gypsy King’.

Speaking to iFL TV, the former unified world heavyweight champion said: “After looking at the fight on the weekend with AJ and Takam, AJ struggled with, let’s face it, a glorified midget, no disrespect to midgets, because I happen to like midgets and I’ve sh****d a couple.

“But he was a glorified midget in the heavyweight division.

“He was a tough man and he was brave but he ain’t Tyson Fury he ain’t 6ft 9, 18 stone, can turn on a fifty pence coin.

“He ain’t that man and he [Joshua] struggled with that man [Takam] – so how’s he going to beat this man if he struggles with midgets who just come forward with their hands up.”

Fury then went on to say he would cruise to an easy victory if and when he faces Joshua inside the ring.

He claimed he would leave the 28-year-old looking like ‘The Elephant Man’ as he looks to reclaim his old world titles.

And the former IBF, WBA, WBO, and IBO champ insisted he still reigns supreme in the heavyweight division.

Fury said of the current crop of belt holders: “These haven’t beat champions, they’ve beat ‘has-beens,’ they’ve beat shadows of former glories and they’ve beat bums.
