Tyson Fury as only other current fighter who can beat Deontay Wilder

Tyson Fury is adamant that Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte would both get knocked out inside the first round if they fought Deontay Wilder next.

The WBC heavyweight champion dethroned America’s ‘Bronze Bomber’ back in February, boxing beautifully as he walked him down and stopped him in seven rounds.

As is sadly predictable in boxing, this single defeat has led to many denigrating Wilder.

Regardless, Fury told iFL TV: “Deontay Wilder, barring none, even today, is the most dangerous heavyweight alive.

“He would wipe the floor with every other single heavyweight out there, apart from myself.

“And I also believe that Oleksandr Usyk would give him problems.

“They’re the only two people in the heavyweight division alive today that could give Deontay Wilder trouble.

“That’s myself and Oleksandr Usyk.

“I’m an absolute beast, warrior, legend, ‘lineal’ champion and Usyk because he’s a master southpaw, slick boxer.

“He’s had a lot of experience and he knows how to deal with power punchers.”

Since the ‘Gypsy King’s’ dominant victory, many observers have suggested that simply walking forwards at Wilder is the way for other heavyweights to stop him.

However, Fury said: “Wilder beats Joshua, he beats Whyte and Jarrell Miller.

“There’s nobody who can beat Deontay Wilder. Are you joking, the ‘Bronze Bomber’?

“One touch on their faces and they’re gone forever, goodnight Vienna.

“He would do to Whyte and Joshua what he did to Dominic Breazeale, put them unconscious in round one.

“They ain’t got the skills I’ve got, can’t touch this, this can’t be touched.

“I just wanna see them fight. They wanna call Wilder this, that and the other, but he will put them to sleep, easy.

“Soon as he touches them, they’re gone.

“They’ve got no defence and just walk into punches.

“What are they gonna do, walk him down, without a feint, without no footwork? Please.

“You won’t walk a man like that down, he’d punch holes in you.

“I’d definitely, definitely back Wilder to knock the pair out, for sure.”
