Tyson Fury Says He 'Could Drink 14 Pints And Still Give Anthony Joshua A Hiding'

Tyson Fury says he "could drink 14 pints" and still give Anthony Joshua a "hiding" inside the ring.

This week, 'The Gypsy King' has been speaking about a possible bout against AJ.

Fury, who claims to be drinking 12 pints of Stella a day having stopped training, also says he does not see himself fighting in the UK ever again. The 32-year-old also poured cold water over fighting Joshua in the near future.

Speaking to iFL TV, he said: "Whatever they say is very unimportant to me because, until I have a fight date and a hell-of-a-lot of money in my pocket, there is no fight.


"Will I be fighting Joshua in the next ten minutes? No. Do I think the fight will eventually happen? Yes, it has to happen. Do I think it is next or imminent? No.

"I am not going to hold my breath for it, that's for sure."

Fury continued, saying: "I am not going to put all my eggs in one basket because I have been guilty of doing that before and, when the fight doesn't happen, that is when I end up in a massive depression and feel like killing myself.


"I am not going to say 'it is definitely happening in June or July.' I have stopped training at the moment, I am on holiday.

"I am drinking anything between eight, ten, 12 pints of lager a day, at the minute. But I am not eating so I am getting my calories through alcohol.

"I have trained and trained and trained with no progress so I am now a man of leisure."

Later on, during MTK Global's Fight Night in Bolton, Fury suggested he could beat Joshua after 14 pints.

"I could drink 14 pints and still give AJ a hiding." he said on iFL TV.

"I'm not training anymore. I only need six/seven weeks anyway for these bums.


"I don't need no big, great sparring partners for a bodybuilding type of guy, I just need the local binmen."

Thoughts on Fury's latest comments? Would he be able to beat Anthony Joshua with only six or seven weeks of training?

Let us know in the comments.
