Anthony Joshua versus Tyson Fury: AJ’s former trainer says how Fury can become the favourite

Anthony Joshua’s former trainer said how the former lineal heavyweight champion can become the second favourite in a Tyson Fury fight.


Both men are on the path to touch gloves, with the undisputed heavyweight bout between Fury and Oleksander Usyk being the only seen barrier.

Joshua who knocked out Francis Ngannou recently has beaten four men in eleven months, and is eyeing a heavyweight title.

Joshua’s former trainer, Richie Woodall, said the following on Boxing Social about how a fight between Fury and Joshua would play out:

‘Last couple of performances he’s boxing really well, it’s working with Ben Davison. The way he knocked out Ngannou was very impressive indeed. I think the fight everyone still really wants to see deep down is Tyson Fury versus AJ.

‘But Fury has a very difficult fight against Usyk, but Tyson looks in really good shape so it’s a close one to call. I’m actually going for Fury, I think he will be too big for Usyk, but I can’t wait for it.

‘But I think the one we want to see is AJ, I think he’s improving with Ben Davison, fair play top him so why not, it’s an exciting division.’

Woodall later said the only thing that can make Fury who nearly lost to Ngannou last year become the top dog assuming there was a future fight with Joshua.

‘We’ll have to judge it on [Fury’s] next fight with Usyk, it’s going to be a difficult fight and he’s going to have to be at his best so Tyson versus AJ is 50-50 at this stage but if he beats Usyk he starts the favourite.’

Some fans would likely disagree.
