Fury: I'll bet a million Wilder knocks out Joshua
Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) did not include Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) in the top three of his most dangerous opponents. He still considers Deontay Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs) the strongest opponent and has no doubt that Wilder would have beaten Joshua in a head-to-head meeting.
“I can definitely name the top four. The first place is definitely mine, and from the second to the fourth, everyone can make their own rating between Oleksandr Usyk, Joe Joyce and Deontay Wilder. Still, it seems to me that no one but me can survive in the ring with Wilder, ”said the Gypsy King immediately after defeating Derek Chisora.
Eddie Hearn, Joshua's promoter, and Shelley Finkel, Wilder's longtime adviser and manager, are already in talks about their possible fight. For now, this is still a distant future, and for now, both have basically "fought" with each other in the media. AJ and the Bronze Bomber no longer hold championship belts, but their clash would still guarantee huge money and pay-per-view sales. Hearn even claims that he doesn't see more box office fights than this one.
“I would like to see it, but I doubt that Joshua will have the courage to do it. I think he will avoid anyone who can knock him out. And I have no doubt that Wilder will do it. I'm willing to bet a million pounds that Wilder will knock Joshua out if they fight. And he knocks him out very hard,” Fury said.
