Akin to Joshua, ‘The Gypsy King’ has also vowed to win the upcoming fight. While the heavyweight battle has split the entire combat world into two halves, most of the specialists have favored Tyson Fury to win.

Still fresh from his win against former champion Deontay Wilder, ‘The Gypsy King’ has all the reasons to remain superior. But writing off Joshua’s chances is unfair as he avenged his sole career loss to Andy Ruiz Jr.

Moreover, he has recently defended his titles with a sensational KO against Kubrat Pulev, and will be high on confidence having boxed just months ahead of the undisputed clash.
