Anthony Joshua backs Fury to defeat Wilder
Anglo-Nigerian boxing champion, Anthony Joshua makes his prediction of the fight between bitter heavyweight rival Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder in their highly awaited trilogy bout next month; stating that Tyson would win the bout.
Wilder and the Gypsy King will collide for the third time after a judge ruled on the legitimacy of the American’s right to a rematch after his brutal defeat in Las Vegas in February 2020.
The court’s decision ended the hopes of Joshua and Fury facing off in a massive unification showdown this summer. In September, Joshua will likely face obligatory opponent Oleksandr Usyk.
During an interview with talkSPORT on Thursday, Joshua was quizzed on his opinion about who’ll win between his heavyweight rivals.
After a short pause, Joshua said: “I don’t mind, I don’t mind.
“But Fury won the last one so I’ll go with Fury because you’re only as good as your last performance. But good luck to them both.”
When asked about his present plans, Joshua stated that he has “no other option” but to defeat Usyk in the upcoming fight and continue to work towards that unification fight in the future.
He added: “I’m going to win because I have to. I’ve got no other option and then I’m going to get on to the next fight which is undisputed.”
