TOMMY FURY predicted Deontay Wilder would knock out Anthony Joshua ‘within two or three rounds’.
It comes after the 2019 Love Island star said AJ would be his brother Tyson’s easiest opponent.

Tyson, 32, dominated Wilder, 35, last February to win the WBC title, setting him up for a historic undisputed title decider with Joshua, 31.
And Tommy – 4-0 in his light-heavyweight career – is in no doubt his older brother will deal with AJ in more convincing fashion.
He told the Daily Mail: “Wilder would have knocked out Joshua within two or three rounds.
“I know it’s heavyweight boxing and you can never say never, but there is nothing in that fight against Joshua that worries me for Tyson, especially like the Tyson I’ve seen now.
“He can walk through walls, he’s invincible and it’s going to take some man to beat him and I haven’t seen him being born yet.
“To beat Tyson, you’re going to have to kill him.
“The only way you’re beating him is if you knock him out cold and he’s already been hit by the biggest puncher that’s ever lived, so how’s Joshua going to do it?
“He isn’t, so I think it’s going to be a very easy night for him.”

Joshua and Fury are on course to agreeing a double header, which would have the WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO belts on the line for the first time in heavyweight history.
But amid coronavirus restrictions in the UK, the nation’s two biggest boxing stars could be set for an away fixture.
A venue and date appears one of the biggest hurdles left to resolve, after the rivals agreed in principle a 50/50 split of the prize money.
