Anthony Joshua has predicted that Tyson Fury would beat Deontay Wilder in their rematch.

Fury and Wilder would meet in Las Vegas to challenge for the WBC heavyweight championship on February 22.

Ahead of the match, Joshua told SkySports: “Wilder coming through is better because [a fight with me] is what people have been eagerly anticipating.

“But I think Fury can win. For Wilder to win he has to knock Fury completely out, and he couldn’t do that the first time.

“For Fury to win, he can hurt Wilder or out-box him. Fury has more to his arsenal so that’s why I’m leaning to him.

“Good luck to Fury – it would be great to have two heavyweight champions here in England.”

Joshua is expected to defend the IBF, WBA and WBO titles against Kubrat Pulev which will likely take place after the Fury Vs Wilder fight.
