Telegraphing his shots against Fury would be a ‘recipe for disaster’, says Tyson
Mike Tyson warns Anthony Joshua will be at a disadvantage against Tyson Fury
‘Iron Mike’ insists ‘masterful puncher’ Joshua is fairly predictable in the ring
Sportsmail revealed last week that contracts have been exchanged for the fight
Mike Tyson has warned Anthony Joshua that he will be at a huge disadvantage against Tyson Fury because he ‘telegraphs his punches’.
After Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed to Sportsmail that provisional details for the undisputed heavyweight clash were sent to Fury’s team on Tuesday, the £200million showdown took another step closer to becoming a reality.
Mike Tyson was asked for his thoughts on how the bout could play out, while the anticipation continues to build for one of the biggest fights in British boxing history.
Photograpy where Tyson warns Joshua that it will be a ‘recipe for disaster’ if he telegraphs his shots against Fury.
‘It’s very interesting, Joshua is a masterful puncher. But you can see his punches coming, he telegraphs his punches,’ Mike Tyson told Hearn on his BBC No Passion, No Point podcast.
‘And that’s just a recipe for disaster if you’re fighting Tyson Fury and you’re telegraphing your punches – to a guy whose 6ft 7in, come on.’
Joshua showed his true punching power when he stopped mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev with a ninth-round knockout to retain his WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA heavyweight titles and set up a fight with Fury.
Fury hasn’t been in action since stopping Deontay Wilder last February, where he beat the American in the seventh to claim the WBC title – meaning all heavyweight titles will be on the line when the two fighters meet in 5th or 6th month this year.
Photograpy: ‘Iron Mike’ believes the WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA champion is predictable with his punches.
And while the focus is solely on the two Brits, Tyson believes the current heavyweight landscape is great – with a lot of talent in the division.
‘I think there are a lot of great heavyweight fighters in the division. Anyone who says that it’s a bad division is just jealous, it’s exciting,’ said Iron Mike T.
