One of the coaches and good friends of Tyson Fury – Andy Lee thinks the WBC champion is mentally way tougher than his fellow countryman Anthony Joshua.

Lee works with “Sugarhill” Steward and the two of them are the ones who created the master plan for Fury in his rematch with Deontay Wilder this February.
Now the two Brits own all 4 of the world heavyweight championships and an unification bout between them is the number one fight every boxing fan around the world want to see.
But according to Lee, the IBF, WBA and the WBO champion will lose against Fury in a similar fashion to Wilder’s loss.
“I think Joshua is still an improving fighter,” Lee told The Boxing Show on Sky Sports News. “I think he showed huge improvement to beat Andy Ruiz in the rematch.
“I think a little bit of inexperience, and I think mentally, he’s not as strong as Tyson. Emmanuel always said, champions are built on the inside.
“I think Tyson would beat him in eight rounds. I like Anthony Joshua, I think he’s a great fighter, and a great champion, but I think he’s a little bit inexperienced for years of fighting.
“I still think it’s a great fight, and a great match-up. It’s the only real match-up in the heavyweight division left for both guys, but I think Tyson wins in a similar fashion to what he did to Wilder.
