Feb, 1st 2021 – Mike Tyson has warned Anthony Joshua that he will be at a huge disadvantage against Tyson Fury because he telegraphs his punches.
Tyson said Joshua is a great athlete but his punches can be seen coming. Last month, Joshua showed his true punching power when he stopped mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev with a ninth-round knockout to retain his WBO, IBF, IBO, and WBA heavyweight titles and set up a fight with Fury.
The £200million showdown took another step closer to becoming a reality last week after Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed that provisional details for the undisputed heavyweight clash were sent to Fury’s team on Tuesday.
Fury hasn’t been in action since stopping Deontay Wilder last February, where he beat the American in the seventh to claim the WBC title, meaning all heavyweight titles will be on the line when the two fighters meet in May or June this year.
The first draft of the contract is now with the Fury camp, and a fight is being scheduled for later this summer while the location is still up in the air.
