Carl Froch Outlines The Only Way Anthony Joshua Can Beat Tyson Fury
Carl Froch has outlined the only way he thinks that Anthony Joshua can defeat Tyson Fury.
The pair's much anticipated bout has edged closer over the last month, with promoter Eddie Hearn hopeful that it could take place in 2021 after a breakthrough in negotiations.
Undefeated Fury is regarded as the favourite for the fight, although most are sure that it will be a very close affair.
Froch is convinced that the only way that the WBA, IBF, and WBO heavyweight champion can beat his rival is through a knockout.
"I think the only way that Anthony Joshua can win this fight is by stoppage," he told Sky Sports. "He can't outbox Fury, who is too good at range. He throws punches from all angles and he's so awkward.

"But Joshua is an Olympic gold medallist with strong fundamentals and he's got combination punches with real aggression. If he produces the same finishing instinct that he's shown in past fights, then he can beat Fury.
"AJ can get him out of there, I think he can, because you saw bursts of his aggression in the Kubrat Pulev fight. If AJ maintains that, there's a chance he could stop him, but the problem is, if he doesn't stop Fury then he's going to lose on points."
Fury and Joshua look set to finally face each other in the ring after Hearn announced that they have a verbal agreement on the fight.
