Tyson Fury predicts outcome of Anthony Joshua Vs Deontay Wilder fight as heavyweights eye Saudi Arabia bout

Tyson Fury is expected to put his gloves on this summer in a highly anticipated fight.

Tyson Fury has revealed he would like to see fellow Brit Anthony Joshua stop Deontay Wilder but admits the outcome is likely to be different. Joshua and Wilder are tipped to face off in December, with Josua’s promoter Eddie Hearn recently flying out to Saudi Arabia to press ahead with a deal.

It was recently reported that it could form part of a four-man heavyweight tournament in Saudi Arabia this year, featuring Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury. It would aim to end debates among fans and crown an undisputed world heavyweight champion between the four boxers this December.

Now, Tyson Fury has predicted the outcome of the fight if it goes ahead this year. When asked who would win between Joshua and Wilder during a press conference while on holiday in Tenerife, Fury said: “Do you need me to answer that? I think we all know what happens. I’d love for AJ to knock him out because Wilder’s a little b****, but I just see him getting chinned.”

Tyson Fury responded to Deontay Wilder last week after the Bronze Bomber began throwing insults at him. The Gypsy King, 34, who holds the WBC title, fought the American boxer for the third time in a bout on 9 October  2021, and won via 11th-round knockout.

Tyson said: “When I met him man to man, his ******** fell out. He came over and cuddled me like the little ***** that he is. It was like, all right. It must be done. He’s given me the cuddle. Forget about it.”

He continued: “Then a week later he goes ‘Tyson’s still a piece of ****’ this, that and the other. I thought you little slimy… Deontay Wilder is Deontay Wilder, and that’s it. I’ve beat him three times. I’ve absolutely done his record right in. Give him two knockout losses and a draw which I won anyway. It is what it is. I don’t hate the guy. He’s just a bit of a ******.”
