Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren is confident that he will defeat Anthony Joshua when they finally have their bout, in the same way he beat Deontay Wilder in February.
Speaking to the Express, Warren said: ‘Tyson will do to Joshua exactly what he did to Wilder.’
Fury outclassed Wilder in February, flooring him twice en route to a seventh round stoppage, capturing the WBC world title belt.

‘Does anyone think AJ can outbox Tyson Fury? No,’ said Warren. ‘Has AJ got a better chin than Tyson Fury? No. Is he a bigger puncher than Tyson Fury? No.
‘That’s where I’m at. He’s much more game than AJ, too.’
Fans hope to see Fury take on Joshua in a much anticipated all-British affair, however the fight may not take place until 2021, with another bout against Wilder potentially on the cards for Fury this year.
Plus, Kubrat Pulev is the mandatory IBF challenger to Joshua, with a fight scheduled for June, although it may get pushed back to later in 2020.
Joshua holds the WBA, WBO and IBF belts in the heavyweight division after winning his rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr following a surprise loss in their first meeting.
Warren says Fury will be an entirely different beast to Ruiz Jr, though.

‘In the second fight Ruiz Jr was even heavier than he should have been, totally out of condition,’ he said. ‘I don’t see many fighters that have what Fury does and AJ’s plan to get the world titles back was helped by the fact Ruiz trained with McDonald’s before he got in the ring with him.
‘What people forget about Fury is that he’s got a very strong chin. He’s got a great boxing brain, he’s got great hand speed, he’s got great footwork, he’s brave, we’ve seen him get off the floor.’
Fury shocked the world by standing up after a vicious knockdown by Wilder in their first bout, going on to earn a split draw.
A third meeting between the rivals could happen in October, while Warren hopes Fury versus Joshua will be able to happen in February 2021.
