Boxing great, George Foreman, believes Anthony Joshua will be unable to beat Tyson Fury should the two British heavyweights clash as is expected in 2021.

The British pair earlier this year agreed a ‘two-fight financial package’ for bouts in 2021 and if both beat upcoming mandatory opponents, it would be for the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world. 

Joshua faces Kubrat Pulev next week while Fury’s next opponent is yet to be confirmed – but, should the Brits clash, two-time heavyweight champion, Foreman, is backing the Gypsy King to come out on top. 

“That boy Tyson Fury, you’re gonna have to bring everything you’ve got to beat him”, says Foreman.  

“And, I’m going to be honest with you, I just cannot see Joshua beating him. But I sure would buy some tickets to see what would happen, I’m that curious about it”.

“But that Tyson Fury man, woah, Fury – I mean, how did he get the name?”

Foreman also backed Deontay Wilder to bounce back, following the first defeat of his career against Fury back in February. 

“He [Wilder] can come back and he can win again, easily. All fighters can”.    

Fury this week asked to be pulled out of the running for BBC Sports Personality of the Year, saying he has “no need for verification or awards”.

The WBC heavyweight world champion was named on the initial list of six on Tuesday after his extraordinary knockout win over Wilder earlier in the year.

But, the 32-year-old, who faced a petition against his previous inclusion five years ago over a variety offensive remarks, took to social media on Wednesday to ask the BBC to “please take me off your list”.
