Tyson Fury ‘will do what he did to Deontay Wilder’ and KO British rival Anthony Joshua when they meet, says Frank Warren – The Sun
TYSON FURY has been tipped to destroy Anthony Joshua in the same way that he did Deontay Wilder when the rivals meet in a Battle of Britain.
Fury, 31, set up the chance to meet AJ, 30, in a historic undisputed title clash after taking Wilder's WBC crown in February in a one-sided seven round beating.
And promoter Frank Warren is sure the unbeaten Gypsy King will do the same to WBA, IBF and WBO champion Joshua when the pair finally settle the score in the ring.
Warren told the Express: "Tyson will do to Joshua exactly what he did to Wilder. What people forget about Fury is that he's got a very strong chin.
"He's got a great boxing brain, he's got great hand speed, he's got great footwork, he's brave, we've seen him get off the floor.
"We've seen him do all of that, AJ was terribly exposed against Andy Ruiz Jr."
Joshua's rise to undisputed greatness came crashing down last June as replacement opponent Andy Ruiz Jr shocked the world by winning the unified titles, dropping the Brit star four times in his round seven upset.
But AJ slimmed down and expertly outboxed Ruiz in Saudi Arabia in December, despite some nervy moments, to reclaim his gold.
Fury responded in emphatic style three months later with his show-stopping performance against 34-year-old Wilder, switching tactics to go on the front-foot and twice floor the American before the towel was thrown in.
And promoter Warren gives Joshua no chance stylistically of becoming the first man to put a loss on the WBC champion's 31-fight record.
He said: "He got absolutely exposed and in the second fight, Ruiz Jr was even heavier than he should have been, totally out of condition.
"AJ trained hard, it's what you should do as a pro, he fought on the back foot. But I look at it this way.
"Does anyone think AJ can outbox Tyson Fury? No. Has AJ got a better chin than Tyson Fury? No. Is he a bigger puncher than Tyson Fury? No.
"That's where I'm at. He's much more game than AJ, too.
"I don't see many fighters that have what Fury does and AJ's plan to get the world titles back was helped by the fact Ruiz trained with McDonald's before he got in the ring with him."
