Mike Tyson believes Anthony Joshua is the best heavyweight in the world, ahead of his rivals Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.
Nigerian-born Joshua holds the IBF, WBA (Super) and WBO champion, while America’s Wilder is the WBC king.
Wilder and Joshua were in talks for a blockbuster fight this summer, but it now seems the American is set to take on Fury later this year as fans demand the top heavyweights go to war.
As opinions continue to differ over the heavyweight ranking, former champion Tyson believes Joshua is a cut above the rest.
“Right now, Anthony Joshua seems to be the best out of the whole lot of them,” Tyson told Seconds Out.
“He’s the stronger guy, bigger guy, more put together, more put together as far as boxing skills are concerned as well.
“I think he’s the best fighter out of the lot.”
Wilder was ringside for Fury’ last fight in Belfast to announce their bout, but no date or venue has been confirmed.
“Just a quick update, I’ve been reading and I’ve heard some rumours that this fight is off with me and Wilder,” Fury said.
“Not on my watch it ain’t. I’m not pulling out of nothing, it’s on like Donkey Kong.
“Tyson Fury is like a king coming to America,” the maverick Brit said.
