WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury not only believes that he will knock Anthony Joshua out - he expects the end to come in the first few rounds.

Fury has been gunning for a future fight with Joshua, who has the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world titles.

A contest between the two world champions is being targeted for 2021.

Fury will first head to a trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, there is no word on when or where the trilogy fight will happen.

Back in February, Fury stopped Wilder in the seventh round to capture the WBC title.

And Joshua is scheduled to make a mandatory defense against Kubrat Pulev by the end of the year.

Should both champions win, they will be in position to collide.

"AJ’s style is tailor-made for mine. Upright, walking forward, classic defence," Fury said during an appearance on Redknapp’s Home Fixture on Sky Sports.

"Strong and powerful, but no footwork, hardly any resilience and a bit gutless when it comes down to getting clipped. I’ll knock him out around two to three rounds. First time I connect, his legs will do a dance. I’ll just jump on him like that fat kid [Andy Ruiz]. I’ll tell you what shot it’s gonna be, should I? ‘Left hook to the temple, you’re gonna see him do a Bambi dance all over the ring.

"Eddie Hearn talks a lot of hot air as usual. I’ve been offering to fight Joshua for quite a while. I’ve been trying to make that fight happen for the last five years. And it’s not happened at all. Eddie’s obviously Joshua’s promoter, so he’ll have to be speaking to my team to make the fight happen, give the fans what they want and stop running away from the biggest fight since Lennox [Lewis] fought Frank Bruno.

"Have the guts to step up to the plate and get flattened, son."
