Tyson Fury has predicted that Anthony Joshua will be “gassed” and “knocked out” by round six or seven in his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.
Joshua, 32, lost his unified world heavyweight titles after he was completely outclassed by Usyk at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September. He will get an immediate rematch for the belts on August 13 in Saudi Arabia, with his Ukrainian rival now the overwhelming favourite to win the high stakes boxing clash.
And WBC heavyweight champ Fury has now once again belittled AJ by playing down his chances of a victory. The Gypsy King can envisage the Watford fighter being dominated due to his lack of stamina, but has offered to train Joshua himself.
Fury told The Unibet Lowdown on Frank Warren’s YouTube channel: “Unless Anthony Joshua gets his a** up to Morecambe and lets me train him for this fight, Robert Garcia and ten men like him will not make him beat Usyk
“One, they don’t know him. Two, they don’t know what he’s got in his engine. Three, he’s not a little Mexican who can go toe-to-toe with someone for 15 rounds.
“If he gets on Usyk from round one and tries to push him and be aggressive, he’ll get gassed in four rounds, starts hanging around by five rounds and gets stopped in six or seven.
Do you think Joshua should swallow his pride and hire Fury as a trainer? Let us know in the comments section.
“If he comes to Morecambe Bay, I’ll teach him how to be a real Viking man for twelve rounds and how to deal with these little middleweight people, then he’ll get a win. Other than that, I see him getting beat again. Two in a row, baby and it’s over.”
Joshua has implemented major changes to his training camp by swapping long-time trainer Rob McCracken for American Robert Garcia in his head coach role. Garcia has previously trained 14 world champions and jetted into London in the hope of adding three heavyweight belts to his list of accolades.
