TYSON FURY has been backed to knock out Anthony Joshua in THREE ROUNDS by Joseph Parker – who said “it’s a fight we must see”.

Fury called out AJ to meet in an undisputed title decider after his long-time rival stopped Kubrat Pulev in devastating fashion.

And the Gypsy King promised it would take him just three rounds to beat Joshua and emerge as the division’s No1.

New Zealander Parker, who lost to AJ in 2018 and has built a close friendship with Fury, tipped the WBC champion to fulfil his prediction.

He told iFL TV: “If he says it and he believes it, I’m sure he can.”

Both promoters of Joshua, 31, and Fury, 32, confirmed they will begin negotiations for the unification on Monday.

And Parker, who lost the WBO belt against AJ in Cardiff, is hopeful the opposing teams can strike a deal.

He said: “‘It’s a fight we must see. It’s a fight that should be made.

“It’s a fight where we can see one champion.

“I’m not sure what’s holding it up but hopefully they can come to terms so the world can see a mega, mega fight.

“Fury wins that fight. I just think he’s a very smart boxer and can fight. He showed it in his last fight.”

AJ’s matchmaker Eddie Hearn vowed to come in peace as he attempts to seal a deal with Frank Warren and Bob Arum.

Hearn said after Joshua’s win: “We’re going to be friendly, we’re going to be nice. We know what we have to do.

“Starting from tomorrow, we make the Tyson Fury fight straight away.

“It’s the only fight to be made in boxing. It’s the biggest fight in boxing. It’s the biggest fight in British boxing history.

“I know he [Joshua] wants it. He is the best heavyweight in the world, I promise you.

“He’ll break him down, he’ll knock him out, but for me, less talk, more action.

“We know what we want to do. It’s about legacy and we will get it done.”
