Tyson Fury would have the easiest night of his career against Anthony Joshua if the pair met in a world heavyweight title unification, according to the WBC champion’s brother, Tommy Fury.
Fury will defend his WBC and Ring Magazine belts on December 5th – likely against German challenger Agit Kabayel. The ‘Gypsy King’ is set to take to the ring for the first time since he defeated Deontay Wilder for the WBC strap earlier in the year.
Speaking to Press Box PR, the Love Island winner warned that Joshua’s fatigue will be his downfall if he comes up against the WBC king.
Fury said: “I’m not being biased but the Joshua fight will be the easiest fight of Tyson’s career. Tyson’s an all round better round fight than Joshua. Joshua’s a great champion and achieved a lot in his career but Tyson’s just on that next level.
“There’s not anything that Joshua does that poses a threat. He comes forward and he throws a one-two, a hook and the occasional uppercut – that’s it. If Tyson chose to box, Joshua wouldn’t get near him.
“If Tyson wants to fight AJ like he did Wilder then he ain’t going to win that battle because Tyson is six-feet-nine inches, nearly 20 stone and has got big, big fire power now – if a massive puncher like Wilder couldn’t do anything with that, what’s Joshua going to do?
“Joshua is a big man but he’s musclebound and in the late rounds that will have an effect. As we’ve seen in a lot of Joshua’s fights, when he’s been in a proper fight, he has gassed out. Round six, seven and eight he has become sloppy and that’s when I think Tyson will get him out of there.”
