Former world champion Amir Khan has tabbed WBC world champion Tyson Fury to defeat WBO, IBO, WBA, IBF champion Anthony Joshua, if the two British heavyweights ever collided in a unification.
Fury made a career statement last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, when he scored two knockdowns before stopping Deontay Wilder in the seventh round to capture the WBC title.
Joshua regained his four titles back in December, when he dominated over Andy Ruiz over twelve rounds in Saudi Arabia.
Based on the win, Khan believes Fury should be regarded as the top heavyweight in the world.
"We have to say he is the No 1 heavyweight in the world," Khan told Sky Sports News. "We know he only holds the WBC title. You've got AJ who has the other world titles.
"I just feel this is amazing for British boxing, to have all the world titles in England. A clash between them two will be huge, if that ever happened. But I think overall, Tyson Fury's performance was amazing. He did everything, he stuck to the game-plan, was very smart in there, and he made it look very, very easy."
Wilder is going to exercise an immediate rematch clause for a third fight.
Should that fight go through, and Fury wins, the final mega-bout would be a clash with Joshua.
And Khan has to side with Fury to win that contest.
"You've put me on the spot there. If I was to pick someone, I do lean a little bit more towards Fury," Khan said.
"I think Fury is the full complete fighter. He is a good boxer, he can fight. As we saw in the last fight, he's the one that put Wilder down with the power. I never used to think he had that much power as a heavyweight, but I think he proved it in the last fight. Coming forward on the front foot, he boxes really well as well, so I do favor him a little bit more."
