Fury tells Hearn the exact punch he’ll knock Joshua out with

Tyson Fury has said he will knock Anthony Joshua out with a “check left-hook to the temple” when the two fighters take each other on in their proposed bout.

He then added that if Joshua got back to his feet, Fury would knock him out with an “overhand right”.

The ‘Gypsy King’ was speaking on Eddie Hearn‘s ‘No Passion, No Point‘ podcast earlier this week.

Both men are in Dallas, Texas ahead of the super-middleweight unification bout between Canelo Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders on Saturday.

Explaining how he envisages his potential fight against Joshua ending, Fury said: “I’m going to tell you what punch it’s going to be, I’ll even give my game plan away.

“It’ll be a check left hook straight to the temple, his legs will go and he’ll fall on his face.

“He may get back up, and I’m going to knock him out with the overhand right. Good night. Enough said.”

Hearn had a different view, replying: “I think [Joshua] stops you in nine rounds.”

And Fury believes that if his longtime friend Saunders can beat Alvarez, it will elevate him into a position as one of the best British middleweights in boxing history.

He explained: “This is his big time in the sun to shine.

“If he beats Canelo he elevates from a two-time world champion at two different weights to one of the best British middleweights in the history of boxing, or if not one of the best middleweights of all-time.

“It’s all to play for. Billy Joe needs a great dance partner like Canelo to bring the best of him out.

“He’s not unbeatable, he’s been broken, he can lose again. Billy Joe is yet to taste defeat, he’s looking good in the gym, he’s nice and relaxed.

“I think he played a good part this week getting in Canelo’s head a little bit. It’s exciting times, I’m here to support my old buddy and I’m quite confident he’s going to win, for sure.”
