Fury told ESPN: “It’s pretty simple – hit him in the face a few times and he’ll fall over. “He doesn’t have the biggest heart, he hasn’t got the most resilience and he’s not the hardest to hit.
“When I land it’s gonna be over quite quickly.” The 32-year-old also revealed that he wants to be active this year after making just one fight for himself happen in 2020.
When Fury was asked if Joshua will be his opponent and he said: “I hope so. “I’m hoping and praying it’s going to be AJ but I’m not going to wait around forever.
“They’re my promotional team and I’m sure they’re going to keep me busy this year. “I need two fights this year, regardless of who it’s gonna be, let’s make it happen.” He said.
