Now I understand that confidence is something a boxer needs in abundance and I also understand, and accept, verbal jousting is something that stirs up the public interest thereby helping to increase ticket sales, but am I the only one thinking that Tyson Fury needs to put a sock in it?

Ever since his fight with David Haye was postponed until 8th February 2014, Fury seems to have gone into overdrive when it comes to handing out his views.

Over the weekend, Tyson left us in no doubt that he?d be able to beat both of the Klitschko brothers, by knockout, and now the unbeaten heavyweight has inferred that young Anthony Joshua didn?t exactly impress him in his professional debut against Emanuele Leo, on Saturday night.

Taking to what appears to be his favourite method of communication recently, the social network site Twitter, Tyson informed those prepared to latch onto his tweets,

?Joshua?s first fight was s***.?

?He was very stiff and had no combos. Very amateur looks about him?not a gypsy warrior. There?s only one heavyweight in the UK and that?s Tyson Fury.?

We know Tyson, you?ve told us numerous times before but, in the ring, we wait to see whether you can back up those outlandish claims.

However, we?re of the opinion that picking on Joshua, after his first, smacks of playground bullying. Joshua is a novice, he is raw and he?s prepared to learn. Also, in his interviews, he?s come across as the perfect gentleman, unlike somebody who seems to thrive on dishing out the verbal stuff in sentences laced with expletives.

February 8th, for me, can?t come around soon enough and then we?ll see if Tyson can prove what he continues to state!
