Amir Khan is firmly backing Tyson Fury to defeat Anthony Joshua if the two heavyweight champions ever collide in the ring.
Last month, Fury captured the WBC heavyweight crown when he dropped Deontay Wilder twice and stopped him in the seventh round at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
For his part, Joshua reclaimed the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO titles when he outboxed Andy Ruiz over twelve rounds in their December rematch in Saudi Arabia.
Their respective promoters had hoped to match the two heavyweights in the ring on a date in December.
Due to the ongoing coronoavirus pandemic, there is no concrete point of time on when or where this contest can take place. But 2021 is the earliest timeline for when it can happen.
If and when it does finally happen, Khan believes Fury's style of fighting will catapult him to an "easy" win over Joshua.
"My opinion, and I've always said that Tyson Fury is the best heavyweight in the division," Khan told Fighthype.com
"With the skill set he has got, he beats anyone with power. What he did to Deontay Wilder, noone would expect that. If that same Fury goes into a fight with Anthony Joshua, it's always going to be Fury that wins that.
"I still favor him if he gets that fight and I think it will be an easy win for him. I feel AJ is more a robotic style, similar to a Frank Bruno style, and he is very strong. If AJ catches you then he's going to hurt you. But we have seen Fury being hit by the hardest hitter, Wilder, being put down and he got back up again.
"All day going into that fight Fury wins. I think he has got everything on his side."
