And UFC legend 'GSP,' who retired from MMA in 2019, admitted that he was left in awe at the Brit superstar's mesmerising performance.

The 39-year-old Canadian superstar told BT Sport: "It was incredible. It was a master performance. It was incredible.

"He did what most of the so-called experts thought was a bad idea to do: to come forward.

"He's very good with the jab and the one-two, he uses angles beautifully -- it was amazing.

"Probably one of the best performances I have ever seen from a heavyweight in all of boxing fights. It was incredible for me."

Fury is expected to complete his trilogy of bouts with former WBC champ Wilder before eyeing up an all-English mega-unification bout with Anthony Joshua.

'GSP' has revealed why he thinks it is tricky to predict who would emerge victorious from a Fury vs Joshua showdown.

"It's not always the best fighter that wins, it's the fighter that fights the best," he explained.

"So, I can't tell you because of my ignorance. I'm not talking about skill versus skill, I'm taking about the day of the fight, the preparation, the mental side -- there is so much stuff that can influence the outcome.

"What's fun about it is, even on paper one may look better than the other, but the ignorance of the spectator makes it in a way that we want it to happen just to see what will happen.

"It's like a forecast. It can be predicted to be sunny, but it's raining. We can predict to a certain degree in the fight game because there are some repetitive stuff that both guys are doing and everything that we judge in fighting and in real life, we judge based on previous experience that we know."
