MIKE TYSON believes Anthony Joshua’s flaws are a ‘recipe for disaster’ if he is to face off against Tyson Fury.

The heavyweight title holders were on the verge of agreeing a mega deal for two unification fights, until Fury was ordered to fight Deontay Wilder for a third time.

Mike Tyson believes Anthony Joshua ‘telegraphs’ his punches

Joshua is hoping to agree a deal to fight Tyson Fury this year

While Joshua suffered defeat to Oleksandr Usyk back in September, and is now set for a reunion to win back his belts later this year – with a bout in Saudi Arabia reportedly scheduled for August 20.

Speaking to Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn on his BBC No Passion, No Point podcast, the American outlined why he thinks Fury would be the favourite.

Tyson, who returned to the ring in a draw with Roy Jones Jr in 2020, said: “It’s very interesting, Joshua is a masterful puncher. But you can see his punches coming, he telegraphs his punches.

“And that’s just a recipe for disaster if you’re fighting Tyson Fury and you’re telegraphing your punches – to a guy whose 6ft 7in, come on.”

Fury defeated Wilder in an epic trilogy fight, which Mike Tyson championed before it became a formality.

He stated: “I think there are a lot of great heavyweight fighters in the division.

“Anyone who says that it’s a bad division is just jealous, it’s exciting.

“Tyson [Fury] can fight Wilder again and I like to see guys fight each other over and over again, if they’re exciting fighters.”

He added: “[Wilder] did [make mistakes], but if the fans want it, that’s what it’s all about.

“Tyson Fury is a fan fighter. The fans are in love with him, he has the momentum now.
