Now Tyson Fury’s young daughter is talking smack about Anthony Joshua

Apple doesn't fall far from the tree

In the fight game, the squeaky wheel gets the grease and there’s simply nobody noisier than Tyson Fury in boxing nowadays.

Despite the fact that he’s not fought since 2015, Fury has kept himself in the discussion around the heavyweight division’s biggest fights because he knows how to talk better than most.

On a daily basis, Fury provides gold on his various social media platforms while also keeping his fans up to date with his return to fitness following a much-publicised battle with depression and drugs.

The 28-year-old also uses his Instagram and Twitter to take shots at his potential opponents and he even managed to draw the typically amiable Anthony Joshua into something of a war of words prior to Joshua’s Wembley showdown with Wladimir Klitschko towards the end of last month.

Fury also wasted no time in offering his take on the fight just seconds after ‘AJ’ had stopped the veteran, coincidentally the last man Fury faced.

And while it’s largely understood that Fury and Joshua won’t share the ring with one another until next year at the absolute earliest, Fury continues to bang the drum and keep the war of words alight.

On Wednesday, the undefeated Brit even enlisted the help of his seven-year-old daughter, Venezuela Fury, to talk trash about Joshua.

“I think that he’s a weightlifter and he’s not a boxer,” young Venezuela said before giving her prediction for the potential meeting of ‘AJ’ and her father.

Kids say the darnedest things, don’t they?
