Tyson Fury has claimed that Deontay Wilder would KO Anthony Joshua, were the pair to meet in the ring.
There was plenty of talk about Joshua fighting Wilder prior to the American’s trilogy with Tyson Fury.
Joshua could be accused of being yet another heavyweight who spoke frequently about Wilder in the public eye but was too fearful to actually fight him.
Not Fury, though. He fought him three times, winning stopping him on two of those occasions. He’s not convinced that Joshua would be able to replicate that feat.
Fury took to Twitter to reveal his belief that the “bum” Joshua would be on the canvas within just three rounds, was he to take on the Bronze Bomber.

At this point, it’s unlikely that we’ll ever see Wilder and Joshua fight.
With the WBC heavyweight title now held by Fury, it makes little sense for Joshua to risk being on the receiving end of one of Wilder’s trademark right hands.
