- Tyson Fury insists he would knock out Anthony Joshua in three rounds
- It comes after Derek Chisora chose Joshua to beat Fury in a future match
- Joshua will try to regain his heavyweight titles against Oleksandr Usyk
- But Fury believes the Ukrainian will come out on top again in their rematch
Tyson Fury has criticized heavyweight Derek Chisora after his former rival predicted that Anthony Joshua would come out on top if he and the Gypsy King ever shared a ring.
Chisora - who fell twice against Fury and most recently suffered a devastating rematch defeat to Joseph Parker – predicted that Joshua’s “incredible” power punch would be too much for the Gypsy King.
Fury took to social media to refute the claim, insisting that he would stop his British rival in three rounds, although he believed he will be beaten by Oleksandr Usyk, who he believes will beat Joshua by quitting in their highly anticipated rematch, likely to take place this spring.

Fury, who remains unopposed after his stunning trilogy win over Deontay Wilder in October, had a clear message for the British veteran.
“This is a message for Derek Chisora,” Fury said. “I just saw you say you think AJ would shoot me out. Never in a million years.
“If the greatest heavyweight in history (Deontay Wilder) couldn’t shoot me out, and Wladamir Klitschko couldn’t shoot me out, a big old bodybuilder can’t shoot me, my friend.”
He continued, “So, Del, he doesn’t have the bottle to fight Usyk again. Usyk will crush him properly next time. It doesn’t matter if you beat him on points, he will knock him out.
“But listen, it only takes one man like me, there’s only been one man on these shores, and he’s called the Gypsy King, aka Tyson Fury.”
Fury insists Joshua will be stopped by Oleksandr Usyk in their highly anticipated rematch
Chisora, who insists he is not ready to retire after his third straight defeat, signed with Joshua’s sports management firm, 258 MGT, in September last year as he pursued redemption, believing he had been robbed in his first loss to Parker. .
The 38-year-old believes Joshua will do better in his respective rematch, and insists the Briton will avenge his defeat to Usyk to become a three-time heavyweight champion.
Chisora also claimed that Joshua will emerge victorious if a future match against Fury finally comes to fruition.
“I’m going with AJ,” he told talkSPORT radio. “AJ’s power punch is unbelievable. If AJ fights Fury, he should attack him immediately and shoot him out. He can’t box it. If he fights with him, he loses.
“If you give Fury time on the ball, you have a problem.”
Fury claimed an emphatic victory over Deontay Wilder in their epic trilogy in October
Joshua and Fury were on their way to a historic double-header last year after signing a two-fight deal with the first set set to take place in Saudi Arabia in August.
That fell through when Wilder won an arbitration case to force a trilogy fight between the pair, before being pointedly stopped once again.
With Usyk and Joshua taken, Fury has until January 18 to agree to a fight against mandatory challenger and interim champion Dillian Whyte, before going to an exchange offer.
