Watch Anthony Joshua smash punching machine challenge with weaker hand – but how does he compare to Tyson Fury? | The Sun

ANTHONY JOSHUA followed in heavyweight rival Tyson Fury's footsteps by taking on a punching machine challenge.

The 32-year-old almost broke the machine – despite having a go with his WEAKER hand.


Joshua didn't manage to register the 999 needed to break the machine,but he did clock an impressive score of 965.

And that was using his left hand.

Although it was less than Fury's mammoth effort on a similar machine last month.

Comparing scores on a punching machine might be the closest the pair ever come to fighting after their December 3rd bout was KO'd.

And it's the Gypsy King, 34, who has bragging rights when it comes to the punching machine challenge.

WBC champ Fury clocked a huge 993 when having a go last month – and that was also with his weaker hand.

Joshua though did better his previous effort with his latest score.

AJ registered a score of 848 during an appearance on the Graham Norton Show in 2017.

While Fury can technically claim bragging rights, it must be said each machine is different so any comparisons are hard to gauge.

British boxing fans had been eagerly anticipating a blockbuster bout between the pair at the end of the year.

That was until hopes of a mega showdown were KO'd when Fury claimed AJ missed his deadline to sign a contract for the clash.

While Fury recently confirmed he would be fighting on December 3rd, Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn admitted in the week that the bout was off.
