WBC, Lineal and Ring magazine Heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury has dismissed Anthony Joshua’s chances of beating Deontay Wilder if they ever fought saying the British-Nigerian champiom isn’t skillful enough to face the Bronze Bomber.
Fury says despite his masterclass beating of Wilder in February, it takes a lot to actually survive against Wilder. He added that Joshua will be dropped in round one if he ever faces Wilder.
Fury speaking to iFL TV said: “Deontay Wilder, barring none, even today, is the most dangerous heavyweight alive.
“He would wipe the floor with every other single heavyweight out there, apart from myself.
“And I also believe that Oleksandr Usyk (pictured below) would give him problems.
“They’re the only two people in the heavyweight division alive today that could give Deontay Wilder trouble.
“That’s myself and Oleksandr Usyk.
Oleksandr Usyk has won every belt at cruiserweight and is now chasing titles in the heavyweight division with his southpaw style making him an unpredictable fighter.
Fury continued; “I’m an absolute beast, warrior, legend, ‘lineal’ champion and Usyk because he’s a master southpaw, slick boxer.
“He’s had a lot of experience and he knows how to deal with power punchers.”
“Wilder beats Joshua, he beats Whyte, Jarrell Miller.
“There’s nobody who can beat Deontay Wilder. Are you joking, the ‘Bronze Bomber’?
“One touch on their faces and they’re gone forever, goodnight Vienna.
“He would do to Whyte and Joshua what he did to Dominic Breazeale, put them unconscious in round one.
“They ain’t got the skills I’ve got, can’t touch this, this can’t be touched.
“I just wanna see them fight. They wanna call Wilder this, that and the other, but he will put them to sleep, easy.
“Soon as he touches them, they’re gone.
“They’ve got no defence and just walk into punches.
“What are they gonna do, walk him down, without a feint, without no footwork? Please.
“You won’t walk a man like that down, he’d punch holes in you.
“I’d definitely, definitely back Wilder to knock the pair out, for sure.”
