Tyson Fury calls World Champion Anthony Joshua a 'pumped up weightlifter' as he targets comeback

Former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has labelled Anthony Joshua a ‘pumped up weightlifter’ and has copied Arnold Schwarzenegger’s famous saying ‘I’ll be back’.

Fury plans to dominate the boxing scene once again when he is given his licence back and says he has nothing to fear.

The 29-year-old retired from boxing back in July following a number of personal issues and has not fought since he defeated Wladmir Klitschko back in November 2015.

Fury had his license stripped late last year and was charged with a doping offence by the UK’s anti-doping body in June 2016, but his hearing was put on hold.

The Gypsy King is now targeting his return to action and believes everyone in the current heavyweight division are ‘bums’.

Fury, speaking at an event to Capital FM presenter Polly James, said: “When I get my license back and I get fit again, and I get this five stone off – what did Schwarzenegger say? ‘I’ll be back.’

“I think their all bums. I reckon personally on my night in the heavyweight division I think I’m capable of beating anybody.

“I don’t fear nobody and especially not some pumped up weightlifter – that’s for sure, I am what you call the pitfall of the fighting game.

“And people want to see it, people want to see the big fights happen.”
