“I look forward to working with Joshua real soon, we talk all the time.

“It’s a very interesting fight. Anthony has a lot of experience and Tyson Fury as well has a lot of experience but with Anthony Joshua losing a fight [to Andy Ruiz Jr] , it helped him become stronger.

”I met Tyson Fury on a few occasions; he’s a great guy and very interesting. After the fight I like to see him sing… I haven’t seen him fight a lot of times.

“I’ve seen him fight twice, against Deontay Wilder, but it’s a very intriguing match-up. You can never say what’s going to happen in the sport of boxing. Both guys are great competitors.”

The fight between Joshua and  Fury has been agreed according to promoter, Eddie Hearn but the date and venue remains to be sorted out.

31-year-old Joshua is putting his WBA, IBF, and WBO belts on the line in order to become the unified heavyweight champion.

Fury also has eyes on Joshua’s titles and has been talking tough, claiming he will ‘smash’ Joshua in three rounds.
