2021 is set to witness one of the biggest fights in the history of boxing – Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury. The parties of both the fighters have already signed a two-fight title unification deal, with only the location and date, yet to be decided. As of now, boxing fans can expect the fight sometime around June or July.
The sheer magnitude of the fight has got the entire boxing world buzzing, and already a lot of fighters have begun giving their predictions for this all-Brit encounter. More recently; Chris Arreola who takes on Andy Ruiz Jr. on the 24th of April made his verdict for the fight known. The 38-year old American has challenged thrice for the WBC Heavyweight title during his heydays, and now is looking to give his chances, one last go!
Speaking in an interview with ES News, Chris Arreola revealed why he thought Tyson Fury would win the fight.
Arreola quotes the great Marvin Hagler!
Arreola exclaimed, “Fury, because he has more dog in him. And to me, you got to have some dog in you, you know what I mean?”
Quoting the great Marvelous Marvin Hagler, who passed away recently, Arreola quipped, “Once you become civilized, like in Rocky, once you get too used to, f**king, the good life and not wanting to get off those silk sheets, it’s a little hard man.”
Anthony Joshua who last fought Kubrat Pulev and knocked him out, on the 12th of December, last year, has been training ever since that day (According to his promoter Eddie Hearn). Tyson Fury, on the other hand, has been enjoying his time off, since his famous dilapidation of Deontay Wilder at MGM Grand Garden Arena on the 22nd of February, last year.
