Former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury on what he believes will happen if Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder fight.

The trio of heavyweights are the big names all linked with one another at the moment. Despite one of them not having made a comeback yet.

But, by all accounts, Tyson Fury is well and truly on his way back to the ring at long last and will return to boxing in 2018.

Fury and Wilder have always had a more respectful relationship with one another than Wilder and Joshua, and Fury and Joshua for example.

Both have at different times in the past spoken of mutual respect for the other and Tyson Fury believes there is only one winner if Wilder fights Joshua:

Speaking on Twitter, Fury said:

“Great chatting with @BronzeBomber @ThaBoxingVoice if @BronzeBomber fights @anthonyfjoshua wilder ko,s him! fight me first AJ I’ll break u in.”

Joshua has been relatively quiet in recent days since Wilder’s win, but in a text message to his promoter revealed on Sky Sports – the Briton did say of Wilder that he would:

“Eat him.”

A stadium fight has been tabbed for a potential Joshua vs Fury showdown next summer but it is understood that Fury will need at least one warm up fight before challenging Joshua.
