Bellew Thinks Wilder Beats Joshua
While Tony Bellew may not like Deontay Wilder, but he thinks the WBC champion can defeat Anthony Joshua.
“It’s embarrassing Deontay Wilder has 40 fights and fought the names he has,” Bellew told The Metro.
“But, the only man on the planet who can beat Anthony Joshua is Wilder. No one else stands a chance. Not even Tyson Fury. Styles make fights. Does anyone think Joshua would find it hard to catch Fury clean? Does anyone think Fury has the power to hurt Joshua? It’s easy to see the outcome in that fight. It’s a brutal stoppage and I believe Wilder would do the same to Fury,” Bellew told The Metro.
“I also believe a little fat cruiserweight would do the same. Fury is vulnerable right now. I don’t think he will ever see the form he once saw. When Fury fought Steve Cunningham in New York city, he was at his absolute peak, and he was left flat on his back. Cunningham couldn’t finish him, but any decent fighter would have finished Fury. Cunningham is a brilliant fighter, but he’s not a puncher.
“I would have no problem with Fury,” the former world champion would say about “The Gypsy King. “I have never put a man down heavy like that and let him see the 12th round. That’s never happened. I’m a finisher, and so is Joshua and Wilder. Fury’s advantages stop the minute it goes past a few rounds. Once you figure out his awkwardness, he’s had it.”
