Tyson Fury Asked For His Prediction On Mega-Unification Bout With Anthony Joshua

Tyson Fury Asked For His Prediction On Mega-Unification Bout With Anthony Joshua

Tyson Fury has promised boxing fans that he would "batter" British rival Anthony Joshua "inside the first round" of a mega-unification bout.

But the path to unification has been made clear for the 'Gypsy King' after Dillian Whyte missed out on the opportunity to become the WBC mandatory challenger.

Fury took part in an Instagram Q&A and was asked by one fan 'how many rounds would it take for him to batter Joshua?'

The WBC champ didn't mince his words and responded: "I would batter Joshua inside the first round."

During the Q&A, one fan asked Fury why he "disliked" Matchroom chief Eddie Hearn.

Fury laughed at the question and insisted that he doesn't dislike Joshua's promoter, saying he only thinks "he's a bellend."
