- David Haye believes Fury and his team don’t rate AJ
- He thinks it’s the perfect time for Anthony Joshua
- Contracts are now signed for the heavyweight undisputed fight
In reaction to this news, Haye told Sky: “Tyson Fury – many do believe [he] is number one because Fury beat Wilder, and he’s the lineal champion.
“But I think it’s the perfect time for Anthony Joshua.
“Tyson Fury is on such a high. The victory over Wilder made him look a million dollars.
“His confidence will be sky high and I genuinely think Fury and his team don’t rate AJ as highly as they should do.
“That, in itself, causes potential issues.”
The former heavyweight champion then made his prediction.
He continued: “If Tyson Fury attacks Anthony Joshua in the same manner he did against Deontay Wilder, I don’t believe it works in his favour.
“I believe he’ll be too open, too wide and someone as fast, athletic, and as skilful as Anthony Joshua will be able to punch right through the middle and take him out, and take him out early.
“I know it’s a controversial prediction.”
