FRANK WARREN has snapped back at Eddie Hearn’s claim that Anthony Joshua’s resume is better than Tyson Fury’s.

The Brits’ respective body of work is once again the talk of the boxing world following Fury’s emphatic stoppage of Dillian Whyte at Wembley last Saturday.

But Frank Warren insists The Gypsy King has a better resume than Anthony Joshua

AJ promoter Hearn took to Instagram on Sunday to suggest his man’s victim list trumps The Gyspy King’s.

But just days after seeing Fury end Whyte’s world title dreams, Warren told iFL TV: “I’ve got to say Tyson [has the better resume].

“People say I’m biased, everyone has got their opinion. But I think anybody that knows a bit about boxing would think he’s the better fighter.

“If they fought tomorrow, who would be the bookies’ favourite? Who would you put your money on?”

Queensberry Promotions chief Warren believes Fury’s upset victory over Wladimir Klitschko in Germany in 2015 is a testament to the WBC heavyweight champ being the better fighter.

He said: “When Tyson fought Klitschko, that was 18 months, I’m not sure of the exact time, 18 months to two years before Joshua did.

“It was a better fight and Tyson went over and done it in his backyard. He’s based in Germany, his fights are all in Germany.

“He went and done it in front of 50,000 fans and went and took him to school in Germany.

“He was the best heavyweight of his generation and when you look at how Tyson fought him, he never got a look-in, Klitschko.”

The veteran promoter is adamant Klitschko would’ve got the better of AJ in their 2017 dust-up if he was a few years younger, saying: “If he’d had the legs that he had maybe when he fighting Tyson, he might’ve finished the fight when he put him down.

“But he got up, credit to Anthony Joshua, he got up from the canvas and took the fight back to him.

“But I think he could’ve stopped him. An old Klitschko would’ve stopped him.

“But anyway, you can’t take it away from Joshua. He won the fight.”

The undefeated Fury, in Warren’s opinion, also faced a significantly better Whyte than the one Joshua flattened in 2015.

He asked: “Did Dillian Whyte improve after fighting AJ? I think he did.

“And I think Joshua had a tougher fighter with Dillian Whyte certainly than Tyson did that’s for sure.

“Dillian Whyte’s fights with Derek Chisora, their first one I thought Chisora just knicked it.

“And their second one, I think if Dillian didn’t clip him he was behind.

Tyson beat him the first time and the second time. He absolutely took him to school.

“In fact, he done the same job on him there; in some ways, it was a bit like watching the early rounds of the Chisora fight how he jabbed him and picked him apart.”
