Anthony Joshua will only be able to beat Tyson Fury by knockout, claims former world champion Carl Froch. Joshua and Fury have ‘verbally agreed’ to an undisputed title clash next year.

A two-fight agreement is already in place for 2021 and Froch believes Joshua has the devastating power to put the Gypsy King on the canvas.

“I think the only way that Anthony Joshua can win this fight is by stoppage,” Froch told Sky Sports. “He can’t outbox Fury, who is too good at range. He throws punches from all angles and he’s so awkward.

“But Joshua is an Olympic gold medallist with strong fundamentals and he’s got combination punches with real aggression. If he produces the same finishing instinct that he’s shown in past fights, then he can beat Fury.

“AJ can get him out of there, I think he can, because you saw bursts of his aggression in the Kubrat Pulev fight. If AJ maintains that, there’s a chance he could stop him, but the problem is, if he doesn’t stop Fury then he’s going to lose on points.”
