    I believe that AJ and his team know his flaws and has and will learn from them, now whether that will be enough to defeat Fury we will have to see.

    However i see a AJ on fight night who will have reduced or amended those flaws. AJ is all business he is a money making machine, so will be 100% focused on doing everything in his power to continue "bringing home the bacon" AKA $$$$$$$$$££££££££££££££.

    Whoever prevails we will have a unified World Heavyweight Champion, that as a fan of our sport sounds mighty fine to me.

    Mike Tyson is speakin them facts. As good as Joshua is he doesn't have the speed to touch Fury at long range or the boxing brain to play chess with him, even Wladimir failed. He has to drag Fury into a dogfight and go to the body. Cut off the ring and get Fury on the ropes, throw some flashy combinations and steal some rounds while wearing Fury down. The mistake Wilder and Klitschko made is they threw one punch at a time. You dont do that against someone as slippery as Fury its stupid. Throw combos and you might catch him.

    If he hurts Fury he has to TKO him and allow the ref to stop the fight. It's the only way he can win lets be real here

    I think it's interesting you all saying Joshua wont touch Fury because many of you have said previously that Joshua has quick hands.

    It's Joshua's head/body movement that's quite static, this hand speed isn't an issue.

    If Otto Wallin can catch Fury and Wilder can catch him then Joshua with superior technique can catch him.

    Im referring to long range. Joshua can connect a Jab but him landing right straights in unlikely. Joshua can touch Fury at mid range which is what Wallin did. The reason Wallin gave Fury so much trouble is because he pressed the action and sort of pressured Fury multiple times, which is exactly what Joshua should do. If he can successfully break Fury down he can probably have him out of there in the late rounds but thats only if he can do it successfully

    Fury on points. I can't see Joshua dropping or stopping Fury unless there is a cut involved I just imagine a real ugly but effective performance by Fury to win in 12

    I think Fury UD is the likely outcome in fight 1. Fight two will be more interesting.

    Looks pretty logical to me. The odds of Joshua winning a decision are the same as Fury knocking Aj out in the first 10 seconds

    its wild that people think AJ has no chance. he is a vastly better boxer than Wilder and has enough power to do damage. imma go with fury as a slight favorite, but it will be close IMO. lets just hope its a good fight!

    Fury is slippery no doubt and for a guy his size it's exceptional but he is not the 2nd coming of Willy Pep or Wilfred Benetiz. He DOES get caught with punches and it's naive to think that Joshua won't do the same.

    Fury is also not George Chuvalo, Oliver McCall or even Andy Ruiz. He does get hurt and floored. If Joshua connects and stiffens him with the right hand, he will have opportunities to land a follow up left hook/right uppercut. If he does, Fury will go down, if he hasn't already from that first right hand.

    A hard punching COMBINATION fighter is the kryptonite to any fighter with a good chin/great recovery powers. Whatever ever Joshua isn't, he is that at least.

    I'm not saying for sure that AJ beats Fury but ask yourself this. If Steve Cunningham can floor Fury don't you find it's quite possible that Joshua will do the same?

    Good post, lots of valid points. I think though that Fury has vastly improved since Cunningham. He’s basically a different fighter. He used to be prone to lapses of concentration which he seems to have ironed out.
