ANTHONY JOSHUA could knock out Tyson Fury, according to the Gypsy King's uncle and former trainer Peter.

Speaking after AJ knocked out Pulev back in 2019, he said: "It will be a great fight.
"Both up for it, aren’t they. So it’ll be a great fight if it happens.

This makes a dual broadcast the only real solution if they are to make the fight.
Fury's promoter George Warren has also insisted they need the contracts to be signed next week.
He said: "We need to be getting contracts signed next week.
