If Tyson Fury attacks Anthony Joshua in the same manner in which he did in Vegas against Deontay Wilder, I don’t believe it works in his favor.

“I believe he’ll be too open, too wide, and someone as fast, athletic, and as skillful as Anthony Joshua will be able to punch right through the middle and take him out and take him out early,” said Haye.

Haye asserted that if the ‘Gypsy King’ adapts an offensive approach towards Joshua, then it might be a long night for him. The WBC champion was fairly successful with the same style in his last fight against Wilder. But moving into this fight, Haye feels Fury will have to transition his approach.

He believes Joshua moves fast and has the ability to land his dynamite-like right hand on Tyson Fury any time during the fight.

Can Anthony Joshua batter Tyson Fury?

‘AJ’ is one of the most intimidating prospects at the big men’s division. Over the course of his extensive run, he has hammered all of his opponents to prove his mettle. But, with the skill sets Tyson Fury possesses, it’s unquestionable that the latter is the toughest opponent for Joshua.

Both of them will employ their A-game into this fight, making it absolutely worth the watch and hype.

However, a man with the most composed mindset and stern abilities will come out on top, cementing his reign for many more years to come.
