Joshua Thinks Fury Can Get Win

Unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua made it clear that Tyson Fury knows what he’s doing by hiring Sugarhill Steward as his new trainer after parting ways with Ben Davison.

Joshua thinks if Fury stays focused and is able to stick to a game plan, it’ll be two Brits battling to make an undisputed world heavyweight champion after Fury dispatches Deontay Wilder.

“Fury has taken some relatively soft-touch fights to get his confidence back and is going into the new year as a new man with a new team and a new mindset. He must feel something within him that is new, and he wants to be the new heavyweight champion,” Joshua said to Sky Sports.

“He can beat Wilder providing he follows his game-plan for the 12 rounds. Wilder has shown that you can’t blink for a second with him, because it only takes one punch. A good boxer, who is young, fresh and can follow a game-plan, can be victorious for X-amount of rounds [against Wilder].

“Boxing is about hitting and not getting hit,” Joshua continued. “Ortiz got hit with a big punch but Fury is evasive, a lot bigger, flicks out his jab. He is quite difficult to hit. Fury fought Wilder the first time after a long lay-off.”
