Tyson Fury’s training partner explains why WBC champion beats ‘stiff’ Anthony Joshua EASIER than Deontay Wilder

TYSON FURY has an EASIER time beating Anthony Joshua than he does against Deontay Wilder, according to his training partner.

Gypsy King Fury looked all-but confirmed for a first-ever four-belt undisputed title decider with AJ on August 14 in Saudi Arabia.

But having attempted to walk away from his contracted trilogy fight with Wilder, a US arbitrator ruled in favour of the beaten American.

With the pair signed to fight on July 24 in Las Vegas, Fury was forced to switch his focus away from Joshua to Wilder as he started camp Stateside.

But according to light-heavyweight Ahmed Elbiali, the WBC champion never flinched throughout the process of switching opponents.

Elbiali, 30, told SunSport: “I don’t think it matters who it is and subconsciously, Tyson understands that Joshua is kinda stiff and he already has Wilder’s mojo in his pocket. His heart and his mojo.

“With Joshua, he’s a very talented fighter but for the movement that Tyson possesses and the strength and the size, I think it’s even more difficult for Joshua to beat him than even Wilder.

“Wilder, those first two fights he did have that one-punch knockout power, I don’t believe Joshua has that and I believe Joshua always needs to set his feet to punch.

“With a guy like Tyson, I don’t even see him moving around him, I just think he’d bulldoze Joshua.

“I think he’d have a very similar approach against Joshua and Wilder, I just see him saying to both, ‘I’m going to run you the f*** over’.”

Fury, 32, was reduced to a draw in his first fight with Wilder, 35, in 2018, with two knockdowns deciding the result.

But in the rematch two years later, he brilliantly switched tactics to box on the front foot and bemuse the Bronze Bomber, who was floored twice himself.

As Fury climbed to the top of the division again – five years after he dethroned Wladimir Klitschko – Wilder suffered defeat for the first time.

And it proved hard to take for the 2008 Olympian, who listed a litany of excuses for the setback, made without evidence.

Among those were his water being SPIKED and Fury fighting with WEIGHTS in his gloves.

That is despite a member of his own team, along with a Nevada State Athletic Commission, overseeing the wrapping of hands and glove fitting.

Wilder previously maintained he is dealing with a ‘known cheater’ – but Vegas resident Elbiali was quick to debunk the accusations.

He explained: “We’re so commissioned here in the US, the commission is so up our ass before a fight.

“I cannot see why the Nevada State would be any different before one of the biggest heavyweights fights.

“Also, Tyson’s not from America, he’s not going to get away with things, he came here and fought in front of American judges and commission.

“It’s absolutely f***ing bulls*** in the funniest way. I don’t even think it was a thought in anyone’s mind.”
