David Haye was speaking to Sky Sports and made his prediction for the big fight that hopefully will take place this summer between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury and will decide who’s the best heavy weight fighter in the world.

“Joshua will win the fight. His loss against Andy Ruiz Jr. taught him a valuable lesson about complacency and believing your own hype,” Haye commented.
“I think Fury is flying so high after his victory in Las Vegas [over Deontay Wilder] and believes he is unbeatable. For good reason – if I were him, I’d think so too. Joshua has tasted defeat and will have a different mindset.
“He is so athletically gifted, an Olympic gold medallist who has had so many world title fights, he is newer to the game and is still learning.”
“He is an underdog but I like the underdog. Joshua is physically superior. If they did any sport outside of boxing, Joshua would win. A boxing match is skill-based and people believe Fury’s skills supersede Joshua’s,” Haye said.
“But the skilled boxer doesn’t always win. The boxer with speed, endurance, will to win, strategy, who has trained correctly? There a million elements that go into winning a boxing match but people ignore everything except skills.”
Who do you think wins the fight? We can’t wait for it
