Joshua must overcome real adversity, says Fury

Anthony Joshua is entering ‘real men’s territory’ after witnessing the harsh reality of heavyweight boxing ahead of his rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr, says trainer Peter Fury.

The British star battles Ruiz Jr again in Saudi Arabia on December 7, live on Sky Sports Box Office, just over six months since his world titles and unbeaten record were taken by the Mexican in a stunning stoppage loss at New York’s Madison Square Garden in June.

Fury is fully aware of the bittersweet experiences as a heavyweight boxer, having worked the corner of nephew Tyson Fury, and his own son, Hughie, and believes Joshua must overcome genuine adversity for the first time.

“Look at the admiration he had when he was winning everything, and then, look at what people do as soon as you have a hiccup,” Fury told Sky Sports.
