Former cruiserweight and heavyweight champion of the world David Haye believes a potential fight between Britain’s finest heavyweights today Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua would be a very tall order for the former unified champ.
Last Saturday night Fury defended his WBC belt in a trilogy fight against Deontay Wilder. “The Gypsy King” KO’d his American adversary in the 11th round, beating him for a second straight time.
Two weeks before that fight there was another mega bout in the blue-ribbon division. WBA, WBO and IBF world champion Anthony Joshua got beat by Ukraine’s Oleksandr Usyk via UD.
“I think from the strength of that performance, it would be very tough for AJ. Having watched AJ’s last performance against Usyk, the shots that Fury took down the pipe from Wilder, he was able to get back up and rough him up,” Haye told BT Sport.
“The fact that AJ stood at range with Usyk having a boxing match… is AJ going to beat Fury in a boxing match? I don’t believe so.”
