Lowe spoke to Pro Boxing Fans on YouTube and addressed the highly anticipated fight between the two heavyweights. He said, “I’ve said it from day one. I think Joshua is one of Tyson’s easiest fights because he’s a raw blocker, he’s up like that.” 

He raised his hands in a high guard to mimic Joshua’s style.

The Englishman did not leave it at that without explaining his choice. He then spoke about why Joshua would be an easy fight. He pointed out that the Londoner does not have good footwork and claimed Joshua would ‘gas out’ if he throws combinations of three and four punches.

Thus the ‘Westgate Warrior’ did not hold back in criticizing Joshua. Going by his comments, he is confident that the ‘Gypsy King’ and his awkward style will beat Joshua’s textbook approach.

Isaac Lowe gives his prediction

If he hadn’t made his opinion clear enough already, the featherweight boxer also gave his prediction for the fight. After explaining how Fury could beat Joshua, the undefeated fighter then predicted the round in which ‘The Gypsy King’ would win.

“I think Tyson will knock him out in the first four rounds. Honestly, I do. First… say first five. I genuinely do,” said Lowe. These brutally honest comments from the Englishman showed it is nothing against ‘AJ’, but he feels ‘The Gypsy King’ would be too much to handle.

Most boxing fans feel the same way Isaac Lowe does. Moreover, even Tyson Fury has predicted a knockout victory in the first three rounds. However, Joshua has often fed off the underdog status and could use it as added motivation.

What do you make of these comments from Isaac Lowe? Do you agree that Anthony Joshua will be Tyson Fury’s easiest fight?
