AJ and the Gypsy King will lock horns on December 3. AJ and the Gypsy King will lock horns on December 3.

Former two-weight champion, David Haye believes Anthony Joshua will approach the much-anticipated bout against Tyson Fury as the underdog.

Haye believes Joshua's back-to-back defeat against Oleksandr Usyk takes off the pressure from him and this time the pressure will shift to his opponent in the other corner.

“The world will have him as the underdog but for the first time ever the pressure will be totally off him and all on Fury.”

The former champion added that Joshua is the only boxer who has the tenacity to beat the undefeated British boxer.

“If anyone has the physical tools to beat Fury, the No.1 monster in the heavyweight division, then it is AJ.

“Many years ago, Fury and Joshua sparred and AJ got the better of him.

“If AJ can be strong, fast, and aggressive against Fury, then he has a chance of surprising everyone.”

Anthony Joshua will square off against the Gypsy King in what will be a British heavyweight contest in Cardiff on December 3 with Fury's WBC title out for grabs.
