Anthony Joshua Once Sparred Against Tyson Fury For A Rolex Watch

Anthony Joshua Once Sparred Against Tyson Fury For A Rolex Watch

By Mike Parrott

Anthony Joshua has revealed that he once sparred against Tyson Fury over a Rolex watch in 2010.

The two boxers have never fought and is arguably one of the most-anticipated boxing matches in recent history.

After their recent wins respectively against Andy Ruiz Jr. and Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury are yet to step in the same ring. Or well, professionally after AJ revealed that the two have sparred against each other previously back in 2010.

Joshua told Sky Sports: "This was early on when I was an amateur and I didn't know who Tyson was. I was reading in Boxing News he was going around London gyms asking if anyone knocks him out they get to keep his Rolex."

"Me and him had a straight war. We both have heart. I didn't get to knock him out. He said afterwards 'Watch out for this kid, he will be champion of the world one day. And he got his prediction right."
