Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury II: Anthony Joshua Predicts Winner

Ruben Hill

"So I just think Tyson Fury is going to correct his wrongs and come back and win".

During an global media conference call Tuesday, the WBC heavyweight champion said that if Fury shows more aggression in their rematch that there's a "strong possibility" the strategy will leave the lineal champ vulnerable to being knocked out himself, maybe even early into the bout.

To kick things off this Friday evening, February 14th at 9PM on ESPN, "Wilder vs. Fury 2: The Roundtable" will premier with replays all week long, featuring Joe Tessitore, Tim Bradley, Andre Ward and Max Kellerman, analyzing every important variable and factor involved within the highly touted match-up. Joshua believes that it was because of Fury's conditioning, Wilder was able to knock down Fury in their first fight.

"Fury can hit a little". He's underestimated with his punching power, which makes him risky. "If you underestimate someone, he makes it risky because you don't respect him until they hit you".

"Fury is a really good boxer, to a certain degree, so he has the upper hand. If you can avoid that, you have the beating of him".

Joshua insisted that he still wants to crown an undisputed champion in 2020: "I'm still scratching after the last belt out there". However, the undefeated 34-year-old has irked Hearn by criticising Joshua's win over Andy Ruiz, playing down talks of a meeting between the pair and claiming that AJ is "out of the picture". He knows what the truth was.

"Trust me, a different beast has woken up".

Boxing legend Wladimir Klitschko has been asked about his prediction for the Fury and Wilder rematch. "I will absolutely be using that cut as a target, and I am definitely going to open it up again", he said.

Tyson Fury has maintained throughout the buildup to his rematch with Deontay Wilder that he'll be trying to knock "The Bronze Bomber" out. "That's disconcerting", Hearn said. "I need to get well immediately". "It's a two-minute call with MTK and Bob Arum, deal done".

"But I'm not sure who will win (Wilder vs. Fury 2). The comments worry me that we're in the same position".

"The victor of that fight will be under such pressure to fight Joshua that, this time, it will be inevitable". He is a great guy and a fantastic fighter.

"If the loser wants (a third fight), then we are tied".

On Friday, February 21st, the Official Weigh-In for "Wilder vs. Fury 2" will be held inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena at 6 PM ET, and will be hosted by Joe Tessitore, Brian Kenny, Shawn Porter and Kate Abdo.
