In a week that has been focussed around ‘Triple G’, WWE icon Triple H has offered his thoughts ahead of the rumoured heavyweight clash between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua, which looks set to be announced in the near future.
Speaking to iFL TV in Las Vegas, the wrestling legend told of his respect for Tyson Fury, who’s most recent WWE cameo appearance came at Clash at the Castle 2022 in Wales. Despite being heavyweight champion of the world, Triple H said Fury still took the time to practice his wrestling and showmanship, ensuring that his WWE performances were professional.
“We have done stuff with Tyson [Fury} before, he takes it very seriously. He puts in the effort, he puts in the work. I was with Tyson Fury, training with him at our performance centre in Orlando, the effort is there.”
“When you have people like that, massive fans who respect what we do, willing to put in the effort, you respect them.”
The admiration for The Gypsy King is clear from the wrestling star, who feels that the WBC champion will come through his potential December bout with fellow Brit Anthony Joshua unscathed and even predicted when he might get the stoppage.
“I think it’s phenomenal, from a boxing standpoint I don’t think anyone right now can touch Tyson Fury. I think his size, his strength and the skillset that he has is unmatched. I think Tyson Fury comes out on top.
Is that a match I want to see? Absolutely. I can’t wait to see it. If it’s at all possible I will be sitting there, watching in person. That’s a blockbuster, but if I had to make a prediction, Tyson Fury on top, maybe eight rounds.”
A ‘Gypsy King’ knockout is something we have now become accustomed to witnessing, stopping his opponents in all three fights under the guidance of SugarHill Steward since switching to the trainer in 2019.
It remains to be seen if Triple H’s prediction will come true and if Fury can knock Joshua out, or if the latter can pull off the upset. But with a fight announcement seemingly imminent, it’s undeniably an exciting time to be a British boxing fan.
