Eddie Hearn has revealed last week that Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury signed contracts to fight twice this year. The Matchroom promoter admitted it’s “unlikely” the fight will take place in the UK due to restrictions on the capacity at venues amid Covid-19 restrictions.
Collins joined Fight Night on Saturday night to preview the bout and admitted although he is a huge fan of WBA, WBO and IBF champion Joshua, his lack of experience in comparison to ‘The Gypsy King’ is a concern.
“I’m a big fan of Anthony Joshua,” he told talkSPORT on Fight Night. “I think he is lovely, a great man. “He is great for boxing, but my problem is there is so much more he can learn. He hasn’t had the education in boxing.
“He has had one coach – a very good coach – but all you know is what that coach taught him. There is so much more he needs to learn, and hasn’t learned yet. And then I look at Fury, okay?
“I look at a man who is 6ft 9ins and moves like a middleweight, I mean, he is exceptional. How can a heavyweight be as mobile and as agile? Plus he is brave, tough and he can take a good shot and come back. I think he is so hard to beat. For me, he is the man who is going to win the fight.”
