Well, it doesn’t look like No.1 WBO Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KOs) will be beating 39-year-old IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-3, 53 KOs) in their fight on October 24th at the ESPRIT Arena in Dussedorf, Germany.
British heavyweight Anthony Joshua is writing off the 6’9” Fury as not having the experience and just plain not being good enough to get the job done when he gets inside the ring with the 6’6” Klitschko. Fury, 26, is a lot younger than Wladimir, but his youth and inability to punch appears to be too much of a handicap for him to win this fight.
“Yeah, I believe so for sure,” Joshua said in response to a question whether he believes Wladimir will beat Fury. “There are levels in boxing,” Joshua said to Soccer Am via skysports.com. When asked who he’d prefer to fight between Klitschko and Fury, Joshua said “Probably Tyson Fury. It would be a massive fight and it would be great for Great Britain as well.
He’s not as experienced as Klitschko, and he’s an Olympic champion and he’s been champion for 10 years as a professional. Me and Fury would love a proper, proper dust up,” Joshua said.
