Anthony Joshua is easier fight for Tyson Fury than Deontay Wilder, claims Prince Naseem Hamed – The Sun | The Sun
PRINCE NASEEM HAMED believes Tyson Fury will make light work of Anthony Joshua when the two heavyweights clash in a blockbuster British bout.
Fury and Joshua seemingly agreed a Battle of Britain showdown in December completely out of the blue this week.
Fury -was expected to chase a bout with Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk.
Usyk is the undefeated WBA, IBF and WBO champion after beating AJ in their rematch in Saudi Arabia, but wants to rest and spend time with family.
And Fury called out AJ on Monday, to which Joshua responded.
The mischievous Gypsy King teased AJ by posting on social media: “I’d like to give you an opportunity to fight for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world.”
And the Watford hero tweeted in reply: “Yeah calm. I don’t do the online discussions just for clout, so if you’re really about it, shout. I’ll be ready in December.”
Fury can cherry pick any of the WBC’s top 15 contenders. And he told Joshua: “You’re coming off a 12-round fight, so you’re match-fit.
“I’m giving you a few months’ notice. So, if you’re interested, I’ll send you the date over and we can rumble.
“A Battle of Britain for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world.
“Let me know if you’re interested. If not, I will select another opponent.”

Fury won the WBC crown off Deontay Wilder in devastating style, and went on to beat him again in their trilogy clash.
Now, Fury and AJ are set to square off in one of the biggest fights in British boxing history.
Speaking in an episode of Frank Warren's Heavyweight Podcast last year, Hamed is of the opinion that it'll be an easy nights work for the Gypsy King.
He said: "What he [Fury] has done has been phenomenal.
“I am looking forward to Tyson vs Joshua and I do believe that Tyson is too fast and too slick.
"I think that’s maybe an easier fight than the Wilder one – and the Wilder one was very easy.”
Fury is also confident of blasting away AJ as he previously labelled the 2012 Olympic gold medallist as a "big cuddly baby" who poses no threat to him.
He commented: "One hundred per cent Joshua's not dangerous, at all, he's like a big cuddly baby.
"Why would I be a believer in him when he got knocked spark out by Andy Ruiz?
"A last-minute replacement opponent, who turned up 300lbs or whatever, didn't train, and Anthony Joshua couldn't do any good with him in the rematch.
"He doesn't have anything, he couldn't hold a candle to the Gypsy King. "There's only one heavyweight out there, there's only one undefeated world champion.
“They've all fallen by the wayside. The fellow that hasn't been beat has knocked them out.
"I'm the only one, me the Gypsy King – the unbeatable, untouchable, unbreakable champion."
