On the back of Anthony Joshua claiming the IBF heavyweight crown, the other UK holder of some heavyweight belts, Tyson Fury, wasn?t very complimentary of the Watford fighter?s performance.

Since then the two world heavyweight champions have exchanged insults as, you?d imagine, they head towards a unification showdown in a fight that would have huge public interest.

The suggestion is that the showdown between Fury and Joshua could be the highlight of the summer of 2017.

However, someone else on the heavyweight scene, David Haye, reckons that Joshua already has the beating of Fury.

Talking to Sky Sports, Haye has remarked,

?I think he?s ready for Tyson Fury right now. If you look at Fury?s style, he?s very loose and not very fast or agile.

?Joshua has already beaten him up in sparring. You?ve only got to go on YouTube and look at the comments of Fury talking about getting beaten up by a young Joshua. That was when Joshua was an amateur; a novice. If you can beat a seasoned professional up then, now that Joshua himself is a professional I don?t think Fury has a shot in hell.?

Nothing there that we?d argue about but, naturally, Haye is after a crack at Joshua if the Watford fighter does beat Fury with Haye adding,

?Hopefully, Joshua could unify the titles there and when him and his team feel he?s ready and it?s worthwhile, I?d love the opportunity to get in there because I believe I could beat him.?

That remains to be seen Mr Haye, your comeback hasn?t shown us anything in relation to what you have left in your tank, yet!
