"He will hurt him": Tony Bellew makes prediction for Tyson Fury VS Anthony Joshua


Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury are yet to agree for an undisputed heavyweight clash, but boxing stars already making predictions for the bout. Tony Bellew believes if the fight takes place than Joshua will win it. Fury holds WBC belt, while his compatriot Joshua holds IBF, WBA and WBO titles. According to Fury's promoter Bob Arum, the deals set to be exchanged between two parties this week. “I talked to Eddie [Hearn, Joshua’s promoter] yesterday,” he told TalkSport. “Eddie, with the Joshua people, will have the first draft of the contract to us on Tuesday. And then I will circulate it to Frank [Warren], to Tyson and to the various lawyers. We’ll then get back to Eddie with our comments and I really believe that this is pretty much a no-brainer because everybody are professionals and want this to happen. So I think shortly we’ll be able to tie this up and then jointly select the site.” And ahead of the expected fight, Bellew says that Joshua will need only six rounds to beat Fury. Speaking to IFL TV, he said: "AJ will get his opportunity [against Fury], and he will land, and he will hurt him. He’s got the speed and the technical ability to carry on and go with it. There have been numerous fighters that have dropped Fury over the years, like Steve Cunningham. “He dropped him, but then he was mystified by his size and what to do. Then you’re lost. 30 seconds pass, and then a minute passes, and then your opportunity is gone. He isn’t allowing that to happen. I just don’t see it. I just see him [Joshua] landing something heavy and then getting on with it. And I think it has to be in the first six rounds, and I think it will."
