Amir Khan has warned Tyson Fury to stay well away from Tyson Fury. The unified heavyweight champion was due to fight Fury in a Battle of Britain for all the belts this autumn before Deontay Wilder’s arbitration victory scuppered those plans.
Asked about AJ’s chances of beating Fury, Khan told the Last Stand Podcast: “He’s a beast, heavyweight champion. But a lot of people say,
“Is he gonna beat Tyson Fury?’ I think that could be one of the hardest fights he ever has. If I was Anthony Joshua, I’d keep away from Tyson Fury.”
Fury is now preparing to make the first defence of his WBC world title against Wilder in Las Vegas on July 24.
