The 30-0-1 boxer joined Eddie Hearn on an episode of his podcast, ‘No Passion, No Point.’ Of the Joshua fight, Fury said, “I’ll even give me game plan away. It will be a check left straight to the temple. His legs will go and he will fall on his face.”

The undefeated champion then added, “He may get back up and I’ll knock him out with the overhand right. Good night, enough said.” 

This comment showed that Fury is sticking with his KO prediction, which he made even before the talks started.

Why is Tyson Fury so confident?

These comments from Fury showed his amazing confidence levels. This is not even the first time he has expressed his belief with such conviction. Earlier, he posted a video of his training and gave fans a taste of the move that would put Joshua down. So why is ‘The Gypsy King’ so confident?

The WBC champion goes into the fight as the firm favorite, thanks to his superior boxing ability. He knows ‘AJ’ cannot outbox him and would have to rely on a knockout. However, Fury dismantled Wilder, who arguably had more power than Joshua. Therefore, ‘The Gypsy King’ knows all the odds are against Joshua.
