Tyson Fury insists Wilder would have knocked out Anthony Joshua

Tyson Fury has launched a dig at fellow British heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua by sharing a tweet about Deontay Wilder.

The shared clip shows his promoter Frank Warren discussing the heavyweight division’s top fighters following Fury’s extraordinary knockout victory against Wilder in their recent trilogy fight, where he defended his WBC belt.

Speaking in an interview on his own YouTube channel, Warren claims Joshua, who recently lost his own heavyweight titles to Oleksandr Usyk, would also have lost to Wilder.

The jibe comes following years of back-and-forths between the two British boxers, with Warren adding that Joshua have been knocked out had he faced the American slugger.

Warren said: “If he weren’t in that ring with Tyson Fury, Wilder would have knocked out all of them.

“He would have knocked out [Dillian] Whyte, he certainly would have knocked out Joshua, looking at that performance against [Oleksandr] Usyk.

“He wouldn’t have been able to back off him. If he comes out doing what I think he’ll do, it will be a shoot-out.”

Fury’s second victory against Wilder cemented his position as the most fearsome heavyweight in the world.

Meanwhile, 31-year-old Joshua’s display against Usyk appeared a backwards step in the boxer’s trajectory, having showed little ambition and ending up completely outclassed by the Ukrainian.

Warren went on to add: “I thought Tyson would stop him in about five or six rounds but it went on to eleven rounds because of the heart Wilder had.

“But if he was in there with any of those guys… do me a favour. Why didn’t they get in the ring with him?”

AJ and Fury were finally meant to face off in August until a US court ruled that the Gypsy King would have to fight Wilder a third time.

It is now unlikely they will clash in the near future due to Joshua’s lack of belts and a potential rematch with Usyk next year.
