World Boxing Champion, WBC, heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, has backed British boxer, Anthony Joshua, to vanquish Ukrainian fighter, Oleksandr Usyk, when both boxers clash in a heavyweight title scrap.
Joshua will defend his World Boxing Organization (WBA), International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Organisation heavyweight titles against Usyk on September 25.
The scrap will take place in London at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
“This guy Usyk is no mug,” Fury was quoted by Daily Postal service as saying ahead of the scrap on Saturday.
“Joshua’s in a tough scrap. Do I want him to win? Definitely. Because me beating upward Usyk doesn’t create as much sense or as much money as me beating upward Joshua in the large fights everyone wants to reckon.”
Fury added: “I catch all the large boxing matches. Every single one that happens. Of course of study, I would be watching a heavyweight title scrap. This one is for certain. Hoping this body-builder doesn’t lose.”
Meanwhile, Joshua is set to fight Fury later this yr after both boxers finally signed off on the first of all of their 2 heavyweight blockbusters dorsum in March.
The venue and date for the heavyweight scrap are yet to be officially confirmed.
