Anthony Joshua v Tyson Fury: Who would win?
It’s the question everyone’s asking. If Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury do eventually meet in the ring; who would win?
A meeting has been tentatively spoken of for years, but the events of the last 12 months has made a potential heavyweight clash more likely than ever.
Fury (30-0-1) is now at the top of his game after his stunning victory over Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas in February.
AJ (23-1) is at a career crossroads after defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr last June stunned the world. Though he responded to win the rematch in December, a fight with Fury might be Joshua’s best way back to the top.
As for the latest Anthony Joshua versus Tyson Fury odds, our traders make the ‘Gypsy King’ odds-on favourite at 1/2, such has been Fury’s remarkable return to glory.
That leaves Joshua as the 13/8 outsider. With a draw at 25s.
But the odds don’t paint the full picture.
Size-wise, Fury’s got three inches on AJ at 6ft 9in, while he’s also bringing an 85in reach to Joshua’s 82in.
Many will point to Joshua’s speed and movement, but Fury showed in Vegas that he has upped his own game in that department.
And what about focus and preparation? Fury’s issues have been well documented in the past, while Joshua admitted he didn’t prepare as well as he could before losing to Ruiz Jr in New York.
What do you reckon? Would AJ have what it takes? Or would Fury’s power prove too much? Let us know in our Twitter poll @Ladbrokes.
