    If Miller can get under AJ’s skin Fury certainly can. I hope Fury really sticks the boot into Sky and Eddie and Bellew etc. Like Bellew has a big mouth but I doubt he’d even get into a slinging match with Fury. I’ve got nothing against AJ or anything I think he’s a good fighter I just wish he’d just say what’s on his mind more. I don’t think he’ll really have a choice in this instance cos Fury will make him.

    fury is a very intelligent man who can anticipate public perceptions.i think he will be very respectful to Joshua if and when it happens.

    All the sky boys, AJ, Hearn, Bellew, Smith, Nelson would all sit there in a line quiet as scared church mice as Fury roasts them on the mic and the entire crowd is in stitches

    Pretend you're Joshua sitting in that press conference, what can you say that could get to Fury? He's the only one thats beaten a guy from the top three HW's. I mean he could say how mentally fragile Fury is and how he can't handle being in the headlines but he'll get destroyed for saying that by the public.

    Hearn reeling off the whole “parker, breazeale, Martin, povetkin, Whyteleafe, jarrell Miller”. which was used to brainwash the red button crowd into believing big Josh was the Real heavyweight champ.

    meanwhile the top two were having a trilogy for the ages.

    As you say, he could just call him out on the drug cheating and mental health stuff as a way to escape a ban, tell him he bottled the Ustinov fight because his uncle had a cough, bring up all the old sexist/homophobic stuff that Fury is desperate not to talk about now he's a mental health ambassador and all-round good guy. It wouldn't be hard to wind Fury up, but as you say Joshua would get panned for daring to suggest Fury may have been economical with the truth.

    I actually think it'll be fairly mundane to be honest. Joshua will probably spend more time talking about Wilder, saying Wilder took Fury lightly and ducked him, that Wilder's now just a no-mark and that this is the fight everyone wants. (True to an extent.) Fury will go over the idea he took Klitschko to school whilst Joshua went life or death with him. Joshua will say both still won but at the end of the day his fight will be talked about forever and Fury's gets mentioned as one of the worst of all time.

    There's a couple of ways you could go and to an extent you'd play it by ear because as you rightly say, some attacks could easily rebound on the attacker. AJ isn't going to be good off script, so I wouldn't ask him to be. Stakes are too high. Say your prepared bit and shut up. Eddie Hearn is a good communicator and a master of the hidden jibe. Fury still presents a big target, as I say it just depends on if they want to go there. Neither guy will want to be seen as losing but ultimately the name of the game is selling tickets not 'winning' the presser.

    Fury's too good a talker to really "get at" consistently.
    It would be a waste of energy to really get "under his skin" and even the attempt to do so such he's already got his opponent a bit shook, if that's not the opponent's usual M.O.
    Fury will be Fury. Just enjoy it while he's around. You'll all miss him when he's gone.

    Joshua will be Joshua.
    Yeah, Fury will probably "win" the press conferences hands down. But Joshua's a cool customer, I reckon, a more stable personality than Wilder. Even if he gets annoyed a little he's too cool a professional to have it trouble him, he's too grounded, I suspect.

    Fury-Wilder 3, if it happens ..... now that's the really interesting one, in terms of media build-up.
    Fury might take it easy on Wilder so as not to remind people how over-matched Wilder is, but I doubt it. If he puts his foot on the pedal even slightly, we could see a Wilder meltdown of unprecedented proportions.

    I think Fury lacks a little bit of self awareness at times and as a result is more than happy to run his mouth anywhere, anytime, just like his dad.

    It isn't running your mouth if you back it up. Fighting men don't run their mouths, they live by a code.

    AJ has beaten 3 top HWs ( Wlad, Parker and Povetkin) compared to Fury's 2 ( Wlad and Wilder).

    Does AJ need to say anything to get under Fury's skin? He just needs to do the business in the ring which i expect him to do.. AJ can let Fury do his akward David Brent impressions in the conferences.

    I don't think Fury has a choice really. This would represent a rematch of one of the most one-sided fights in history. I mean, can anyone honestly remember an instant rematch for a fight where the result was so conclusive first time round?

    Wilder appears to be your stereotypical thick as mince uneducated imbecile so all he'll have is mutterings about 'something not being right' whilst Fury just sits there laughing at him.
