Anthony Joshua predicts what round he will knock Tyson Fury out in undisputed fight
Anthony Joshua says it will take him just six rounds to knock Tyson Fury out in an undisputed world title fight, claiming that he wants to ‘break’ the Gypsy King’s head.
Joshua won back the WBA, WBO and IBF world titles from Andy Ruiz Jr back in December.
Fury, on the other hand, picked up the WBC strap with a dominant win over Deontay Wilder in February.
For the first time in British boxing history, all of the heavyweight belts are owned by a pair of fighters from the UK.

And they look to be on a collision course to face each other next year for all the belts on the line.
Both have verbally agreed to a two-fight deal but a date and venue for the first fight has yet to be sorted.
Fury is the bookies’ favourite to win the mega-fight with Joshua, who has lost just once in his career.

Joshua is confident, however, that he will easily overcome the undefeated Fury.
“I have a lot of respect for the man,” Joshua said on A League Of Their Own.
“He’s a good family man and a good fighter, but on the other hand, I want to break his head.
“First six rounds, I think, well I know I’m going to take him out then.
“I have had a shorter career, so I’m fresher.
“I’ve been in the deep end longer so I can handle the pressure and I believe I’m going to take him out.
“Fury drew the first and then rejigged his game plan and took Wilder out and schooled him really.
“But I think I’m faster than Wilder anyway, call it what you want, I believe I’m better.”
Joshua is scheduled to face Kubrat Pulev next while Fury will take on Wilder for a third time.
