But the super-fight is far from done as the 'Gypsy King' may need to face Deontay Wilder, who activated his rematch clause, for the third time ahead of the Joshua bout.
Joshua, who successfully defended his championship against Kubrat Pulev in December, could find Oleksandr Usyk blocking his path to a unification bout should the WBO enforce a mandatory challenge.
Canelo believes that 'AJ' would emerge as the victor in the Fury fight as he would knock out the WBC champ in the championship rounds.
The 30-year-old Mexican star told Sky Sports: "'AJ' wins by late stoppage.
"'AJ' has that raw power which will make Fury think about boxing him more than beating him up.
"As Joshua gets his second wind in the later rounds, that's when he'll land a shot on Fury and knock him out."
Promoter Eddie Hearn, who said Joshua would be willing to drop the WBO title to face the 'Gypsy King,' has claimed that the Fury fight would need a live crowd.
And the Matchroom chief believes that a realistic window for Joshua vs Fury would be in the summer.
"We are close, contracts have been going backwards and forwards," Hearn told DAZN.
"The main thing is to get an agreement in place but we are in a very difficult period right now where we don't know where we can get crowds for that time of year, May or June.
"The first thing to do is agree terms in full and then to go out and secure a date and venue for that fight."
