tyson fury could be right. he could well win a fight between the ewo of them. but then again joshua may well be the winner. we will not find out till they actually face each other in the ring, so let's get it on. hope at least the first of there double header fights is somewhere in the uk.

Joshua footwork and speed improved in the last fight, still can't see beyond Fury though

I just think that Tyson Fury is a better fighter/boxer (however you wish to put it) than Anthony Joshua.

Very different styles, so it's crazy to say one is a better boxer than the other. Fury much more defensive/tactical, although he can hit hard and be aggressive. Joshua much more aggressive, although he can defend and box tactically. Whoever you think is "better" just depends on which style you think is more effective.

Absolutes don't exist in my opinion but, if anyone thinks that Joshua's boxing ability is anywhere near Fury's level, then they are badly mistaken. If they do fight Fury will (imo obvs) win inside the distance. I dont think Joshua could handle Wilder tbh..
I'm not a particular fan of either but I dont believe its hard to see the difference.

Fury will win! Anyone thinking otherwise is a deluded AJ fanboy! There’s a huge gulf in boxing skill! The only guy who could worry Fury was Wilder as he had freakish ko power! AJ has not got near that level of power so there’s nothing to fear from Fury! It will be another Fury - Wlad all over again! A master class to a purist but a borefest to the moronic fanboys! And there’s a lot of them!

Fury will never agree to fight Joshua. Wilder was a manufactured champion, fought 39 bums and a 50 year old Ortiz. As soon as he came up against a motivated top 10 fighter he was shown up for the non boxer he is.

Fury has only fought cab drivers since his comeback. I'd put my money on Povekin to beat Fury, he will not fight any top 10. Wilder doesn't fight again either.

Hope it does happen. Like them both and think they're both excellent. I'd back Fury to win, probably via decision or a late KO. Joshua faster and maybe stronger, but Fury with a bigger heart and more general boxing nous.

The one thing I don't get about this fight/fights is why does there have to be two fights? It's all about money, when one fight is enough to see who is the best. By all means if it's a draw then re run it but that's it.

AJ is the casual observers favourite and the money maker in any deal AJ uses language that is disturbing and indicative of his doubts about how he defeats Fury in 6-12 months time. He has a very well oiled marketing machine behind him, when you put money above all else its bad news when you fight against a man who does not, and can beat Klitschko and Wilder who owned their belts for 5-10 years..

This is a real 50/50 fight. If it's on points Fury wins and If it's a KO then I back AJ.
My monies a very small amount will be on AJ just feel like he's matured since Ruiz where all he wanted to do was win quick win a KO everytime.
As good as he is Fury hasn't fought many top fighter's and got exposed by couple of real unknowns....if he's in that position with AJ he's in serious trouble

I really struggle to bother with the posturing about the best facing the best, the politicised TV deals and too many belts era is ridiculous. My wife asked me this weekend what the belts being held up on DAZN were, truth is, pointless was the answer..... Interim/Intercontinental/Silver - RUBBISH!

I doubt Fury could beat AJ in 2 rounds, that a bit ambitious and also disrespectful. I think it will be a lose contest, not sure who will come out on top, and a lot will depend on how far the fight goes as I believe the longer the fight goes on the better for Fury.

Wilder is a similar boxer to AJ in that he never really fought anyone away from home and cherry picked opponents at the right time in his career. The only boxer could seriously trouble both AJ and Wilder is Ruiz Jr. and if that happens, you would need to revise your opinion on what you are saying.

I expect to be in a minority but I think Joshua will knock Fury out. I am not naive enough to think Fury can’t win on points but if he does he will run, grab and jab his way to such a win. I continue to believe AJ has a better resume and is not as “chinny” as his naysayers proclaim as he took a lot of shots from Povetkin and we know he carries real power. Anyway, may even best man win.

My personal belief is Furys confidence and insistence he can KO AJ will play into AJs hand and he'll end up KO'ing Fury.

Fury’s wins over Wilder and a 10-year unbeaten Wlad are far superior to any of AJ’s wins.

AJ’s wins over Whyte, Parker, Povetkin etc. - not to mention getting sparked out by Ruiz - do not make up for the two elite level wins Fury has on his resume over him.

I completely agree. Joshua has beaten Povetkin, Whyte, Klitschko, Parker, Ruiz, Pulev... all top heavyweights. We really don't know how good Wilder is, he's often behind and gets bailed out with one punch. Other than him Fury has recently fought Wallin and safir Sari, both went the distancw. Cruiserweights like Cunningham have put him down in the past to, his chin ain't all that....

I fear Fury will literally just hug and lean on Joshua for 12 rounds to tire him out, then claim a points win.

Some may see using your body mass like this as fair, but personally I think it's unsportsmanlike and boring.

I want to see technique, guile, and venom. Not somebody 'parking the bus'.

Fury a clever boxer and quick for a big man. Aside from Klitschko, he has fought no one of repute. Wilder a dreadful boxer. Fury dodged a rematch with Klitschko. He is in this purely for the money and to get out before he is found out by better fighters. Joshua is the better boxer and if he can deal with all the holding and get inside the jab of Fury he will spark him out.

I don’t think AJ is the better boxer at all. I do however think he’s better than some make out and you don’t win Olympic gold been rubbish! Fury is much slicker and more agile however. AJ has only outboxed old or fat opponents and never anyone of great shakes either. I don’t mind either fighter (though I’ll route for Fury) but wouldn’t begrudge AJ winning. Just hope it happens.

We have already found out that AJ has a crystal chin and that a good soak to the temple and he is like a baby giraffe trying to find his legs. We know Fury can take a punch and get and go on to win. Me thinks Fury smacks AJ good and proper.

Joshua has looked vulnerable in some of his recent fights, although he looked good against Pulev.

I definitely give the edge to Fury; he looks the more rounded fighter who can box and punch. he also seems less likely to be overwhelmed by the occasion.

It's not easy to call. Fury has a size and reach advantage, and is awkward to box due to his relative mobility. Joshua has more power, and is not as technically deficient or chinny as some make out.

If it goes 12 rounds then Fury has probably done enough to win although I doubt it will have been great to watch. If there is a KO then I would expect it to be Joshua.

The impression I get is Fury wants this fight and not more, he wants to have beaten wilder and Joshua and be done with being greatest of this era and retire.

Joshua has more to lose because he has carefully managed his career to get to this point and losing to fury will lose everything he has built up.

I do agree as I believe the biggest UK fight in history (or one of) not on UK soil is a bit of a travesty. However I also think we forget this is their job and no matter how vulgar they have the right to earn as much as possible. £50m may seem enough to us all but if it was any of us and then said £50m or £100m I’m sure we’d all go for the latter.

IMHO Joshua's team will be desperate to avoid it being in the US.

Just compare the track record of the two fighters in the "Land of the Free" - Fury has got results there (even if he had to grind out one or two) but it's where AJ had his lowest moment.

If it ends up in Vegas, it'll definitely be a win for Fury - he's simply the better traveller!

AJ is good at combination punches but he hasn’t that one punch power to hurt Fury and he won’t catch Fury with several shots! Fury took Wilders best in their second fight and he didn’t move an inch, AJ or no one else has that power!
If Fury fights like he did against Wilder moving forward AJ will go into his shell! It was a scary sight. The only way AJ can win is by Hearn and the dodgy judges!

Fury the superior boxer, bit bigger and longer reach so expect him to come out on top

This AJ gets gassed around round 7 to 8, gets easier to hit so I'll be looking for reasonable odds on a Fury win in rounds 9-12 any kind of stoppage

It's not easy to call. Fury has a size and reach advantage, and is awkward to box due to his relative mobility. Joshua has more power, and is not as technically deficient or chinny as some make out.

If it goes 12 rounds then Fury has probably done enough to win although I doubt it will have been great to watch. If there is a KO then I would expect it to be Joshua.
