Olympic super-heavyweight gold medallist Anthony Joshua is being tipped to turn professional later this year, a move that will likely see him labelled the heir apparent by experts up and down the country. But, before he makes the leap, Joshua, along with the rest of the nation, will sit and watch the September 28 heavyweight showdown between David Haye and Tyson Fury through inquisitive eyes.
Call it inspiration, call it a peak into the future - Joshua is excited by the fight, and has already picked his side.
“Fury will put up a good fight and I see the public loving it — but I think Haye will win," the 6'6 Olympian told The Sun.
“They will come out, not shy of each other, not shy of trading shots, but Haye will get the win due to his experience. There will be fireworks and good luck to the both of them.”
