Tyson Not High On Joshua Following Parker Fight
After his win against Joseph Parker, Mike Tyson was not that impressed with the work of Anthony Joshua.
The current IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO champion went to the scorecards for the first time in his career late last month when he took a unanimous decision over Joseph Parker to unify four world titles, but Tyson saw more flaws than positives in Joshua’s game.
“Joshua looked like he was the guy to [become undisputed champion] but in his last fight, he did not impress me,” Tyson told Showtime.
Yet it would be the person who claimed he could beat Tyson at his peak, WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, that would impress Tyson.
“[Wilder] is improving, he’s getting better,” Tyson said.
“It will be a knockout. Somebody is getting knocked out,” Tyson said.
And when he asked whether either of the two champions would have had a chance of beating him in his prime, Tyson gave a laugh and a politically correct answer.
“I don’t know, I would have to be there,” Tyson said.
