The 31-year-old is looking to add the WBA and WBC straps to his WBO belt when he pits his wits against the four-weight world champion.

And Fury – who has been training with the slick southpaw in Las Vegas – believes his close friend will demolish Canelo.

Speaking to the Mail, the Gypsy King said: “There will be no ducking, diving and dodging by Billy Joe this time.

“He will shock the world by winning and by the way he does it. 

“He will come out, hold his ground and impose that southpaw jab on Canelo time and time and time again. Bang, bang, bang.

“Canelo is a very good fighter but he will find himself being hit flush in the face from beginning to an end.”

Before adding: “Billy Joe has hidden power for which he is not given the credit.

“Canelo is about to find that out. And that he is up against the best British boxer.
