Mike Tyson is putting Tyson Fury ahead in the Anthony Joshua vs Fury fight. Eddie Hearn claimed that both men have now signed contracts, and the most anticipated fight is getting even closer.
The sports promoter Hearn made the confirmation of the Fury vs Joshua fight last week. Though the venue and the date will be announced later, Hearn is looking forward to a summer fight.
The most awaited heavyweight showdown has garnered different opinions from the boxing world. The boxing legend Mike Tyson has recently commented on the upcoming heavyweight bout. Tyson is a huge admirer of both fighters, and he also watched the Gypsy King’s fight closely praising his style.
Speaking to Haute Living, Tyson gave his thoughts and said, “I like Joshua a lot, and maybe he punches harder than Wilder, but he doesn’t punch faster than Wilder. And if he doesn’t punch faster than Wilder he’s not going to f****** touch this guy.”
The boxing legend also thinks Fury is a very fast fighter, and he can easily get away from fast punches. “If Tyson Fury can get away from Wilder’s fast punches, Joshua might be in trouble,” Tyson continued.
Considering the skills and speed, Tyson predicts a win for the Gypsy King, while he also wishes the best for AJ.
Mike Tyson to fight his old rival Evander Holyfield
The 54-year-old legend returned to the ring after 15 years through an exhibition fight against Roy Jones Jr last year. Keeping with that tradition he has confirmed another fight against his long-time rival Evander Holyfield in the days ahead.
The bout will take place on May 29 and the legend is confident that he will win the trilogy. “I just want everybody to know, the fight is on with me and Holyfield. Holyfield’s a humble man, I know that. And he’s a man of God, but I’m God’s man. And, listen, I’m going to be successful on May 29th,” The Baddest Man on The Planet conveyed.

Tyson battled Holyfield two times in 1996, and he lost both of the fights. Holyfield won the first one by 10th round KO, while Tyson was disqualified in the rematch for biting The Warrior’s ear. Stepping back inside the ropes after almost two decades, the face-off will be interesting.
