GEORGE FOREMAN has written off Anthony Joshua’s if he ever gets to fight Tyson Fury.

The 71-year-old legend claimed a fighter “needs to bring everything” to beat the Gypsy King – but doesn’t think that would be enough for AJ.

Joshua and Fury have been told to win their next mandated fights before setting up a “Super Bowl” undisputed decider.

Two-time heavyweight champion Foreman has predicted the Gypsy King would come out on top if the two Brits locked horns.

He told iFL TV: “That boy Tyson Fury, you’re gonna have to bring everything you’ve got to beat him.

“And I’m going to be honest with you, I just cannot see Joshua beating him.

“But I sure would buy some tickets to see what would happen, I’m that curious about it.

“But that Tyson Fury man, woooh, Fury – I mean, how did he get the name?”

Deontay Wilder claimed his legs were tired after wearing this outfit for the ring-walk

Fury snatched the WBC heavyweight crown from American rival Deontay Wilder at the second time of asking.

The 31-year-old put in the best performance of his career to win the February fight after just seven rounds.

After Wilder’s five-year reign came to end, he blamed his extravagant ring-walk outfit for the defeat. 

He rocked up to the ring wearing a jewellery-encrusted costume that was made to celebrate Black History Month.

Following his first career loss, he told Yahoo: “He didn’t hurt me at all, but the simple fact is that my uniform was was too heavy for me. “

Foreman has claimed it is routine procedure for a fighter to make up an excuse for their defeat.

The 71-year-old added: “When I lost to Muhammad Ali in Africa all those years back, the ropes were loose, someone put something in my water, it was too early in the morning – oh, the excuses went on.

“You’ve got to have excuses when you lose, especially when you’re undefeated.

“You can’t just say, ‘I lost’. You can’t say that.

“And that’s gravity, that’s putting yourself solidly down to make an excellent comeback.

“He can come back and he can win again, easily. All fighters can.”
