Warren on Joshua: Fury Has Better Jab, Chin, Punch, Speed, Footwork!

Frank Warren, promoter for WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, feels confident his boxer would dismantle IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO beltholder Anthony Joshua.

The unification between Joshua and Fury is currently the biggest fight in the sport.

Fury is first contracted to face Deontay Wilder in a trilogy fight, which is targeted for the fall.


Joshua on the other hand is going to make a mandatory defense against Kubrat Pulev, which is also being targeted for the final few months of the year.

Should both champions win, the stage will be set for a Fury vs. Joshua clash in 2021. 

"I'm very excited at the thought of this fight. But both fighters have contracts at the moment - AJ against Pulev and Fury against Wilder. If an offer came up, that the Pulev fight had to be avoided, or our contracted Wilder fight had to be avoided, then we need to make that happen. Let's get it on," Warren told Sky Sports.

"We've been waiting for various offers. Nothing has arrived yet. There have been ongoing talks. Fury? I know I speak on his behalf - he wants the fight. More than anything, he wants the fight. I don't think Matchroom want the fight. All day long, Tyson Fury beats AJ. I had this conversation 18 months ago when Tyson came back. It's not an issue. This is the fight he wants.

"It's the first time ever four belts would be contested in the ring at heavyweight between two Brits. The No 1 heavyweight champion, undefeated, Tyson Fury is the most popular sportsman in the country at the moment."

Warren does not see any way that Joshua can come out on top in the match.

He gives Fury the clear advantage in every single physical category.

"Has AJ got a better jab than Fury? No. Is AJ a bigger puncher? I don't think so. Has he got a better chin? I don't think so. Has he got the hand speed or footwork of Fury? I don't think so. Tyson is so good in every department. When you saw him get off the floor from that punch by Wilder it tells you what he's all about," Warren said.

[QUOTE=1hourRun;20592747]Anthony Joshua could not demand a 22 foot ring in his own country according to BBBofC regulations -- its legal doe! If the Saudis let A.J ride a bike in a 100 foot-ring against obese Andy Ruiz, it be legal…

[QUOTE=1hourRun;20593914]I'm all over the board, from 105 up to unlimited. I dont see much of you guys ( Fury and Joshua fans ) contributing to any other topics. One dubious loss and you think its over for Deontay 'Bronze-Bomber' Wilder?…
