Tyson Fury should ‘easily beat’ Anthony Joshua says Amir Khan, who breaks down the epic fight-to-be – The Sun

TYSON FURY would easily beat Anthony Joshua, according to former two weight-world champion Amir Khan.

The two Brits hold all the heavyweight world titles, with boxing fans desperate for them to clash to crown the undisputed king.

But both have their own bits of other business to sort first.

AJ, 31, will defend his WBA, WBO and IBF world titles against Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday.

And Fury will complete a trilogy against Deontay Wilder after handing the American his first ever defeat with a stunning seventh-round stoppage in February.

British fans seem underwhelmed by the upcoming fights and are desperate to see the Brits go head to head.

And provided the pair come through their next bouts with victories, their respective promoters Eddie Hearn and Frank Warren are keen to set up the unifying contest.

But according to Khan, there will only be one winner.

The 34-year-old Bolton boxer told FightHype: "My opinion, and I've always said, that Tyson Fury is the best heavyweight in the division.

"With the skillset he has got, he beats anyone with power. What he did to Deontay Wilder, no-one would expect that.

"If that same Fury goes into a fight with Anthony Joshua, it's always going to be Fury that wins that.

"I still favour him if he gets that fight and I think it will be an easy win for him.

"I feel AJ is more a robotic style, similar to a Frank Bruno style, and he is very strong. If AJ catches you then he's going to hurt you.

"But we have seen Fury being hit by the hardest hitter, Wilder, being put down and he got back up again.

"All day going into that fight Fury wins. I think he has got everything on his side."

I still favour him if he gets that fight and I think it will be an easy win for him

 

An overwhelming 72 per cent of fans backed Fury to dethrone Joshua in the Battle of Britain.

In a poll of over 10,000 SunSport readers, only 24 per cent voted in favour of AJ holding on to his belts against WBC king Fury.

Fury, who still has to fight Wilder in their trilogy fight, could head into battle with an unblemished record, while AJ has one loss.
