However it’s sometime he said some time ago which might be of more interest to Joshua on Saturday night.
The jibes on social media from Fury that earn thousands of re-tweets are a smokescreen in some regards to conceal the calculating boxing brain that the man possess behind the scenes.
Fury is a renowned student of the game. When he’s in training camp and actually knuckling down for a fight, he takes things deadly serious.
His unanimous decision of Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 tangible proof of that.

Say what you want about Klitschko not been on form that night, or just after having the birth of a child or what have you, the reality is that Fury beat him fair and square.
