Watch Tyson Fury DESTROY punching machine challenge and put Anthony Joshua’s record to shame
TYSON FURY destroyed the punch machine challenge – sending a clear message to Anthony Joshua.
The WBC champion was filmed leathering the target with his weaker left arm but still scored a record of 993.
In comparison, when AJ went on the Graham Norton show in 2017 he racked up a score of 848.
Although it has to be said, each machine is different making any comparisons hard to gage.
Whatever the pair scored on the punch machine will count for little if they end up sharing the ring this year.
Fury, 34, surprisingly turned his attention to AJ after Oleksandr Usyk, 35, ruled himself out of an undisputed bout to nurse an injury.
And Joshua, 32, has since conceded to a 60/40 split for a shot at the title on December 3 in Cardiff, with official paperwork to be sent his way.
Fury’s promoter Frank Warren said on talkSPORT: “The contracts are on their way.
“But I’m not going into great detail about this because we saw what happened last time round with people making statements and so forth and it all fell apart.
“This fight won’t be on until it’s signed, but everybody wants it to happen.

“There aren’t any obstacles in the way, so hopefully very quickly we can get it over the line, but until it’s signed, it’s not on.
“When you’re a promoter, you’re an optimist. That’s what you do. You’re in the business of trying to make events happen, so we’re all excited about it.
“I’m excited about it as a fight because I always felt that Tyson has the beating of AJ and now we’re gonna find out if we get this over the line.”
