1. Joshua vs Fury Preview
At the time of writing, the contest had yet to be made and so we don’t have a Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury date as yet, but according to media reports negotiations are ongoing between the two camps and a formal date is set to be revealed at some point this year.
Wembley Stadium has been mentioned as a possible location, which would make sense given that both fighters are based in England, and ordinarily a summer date would be likely. However, the organisers might wait a bit longer so that a crowd can safely attend the fight without concerns about the Coronavirus pandemic.

Conversely, you can back Joshua to win via knockout at 3.25 or 9.00 to win by a points decision.
3. Fury vs Joshua Predictions
This really is a fascinating and eagerly awaited fight because there is such a contrast in the styles of the two combatants.
Tyson Fury is a big old unit, but he isn’t blessed with extreme punch power and instead relies upon slick combinations and fantastic head and foot movement to keep him out of trouble.
Admittedly, he knocked out Deontay Wilder in their rematch last time out, but otherwise his best performances have come in outpointing Wilder and Wladimir Klitschko courtesy of his sublime technical ability.
As for Anthony Joshua, he is simply a big punching KO artist. Even accounting for his stellar amateur background, AJ retained his power in the pro game and 22 of his 24 wins have come via knockout.
That includes finding a way through the guard of Klitschko to secure a rare knockout of the Ukrainian legend, as well as serving up the first KO defeat of Alexander Povetkin’s career and stopping the durable Kubrat Pulev last time out.
The Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury stats are very similar, but there is perhaps one key difference – Fury remains unbeaten to this point, whereas AJ has suffered defeat in that surprise loss to Andy Ruiz Jnr back in 2019. Does that give the Gypsy King the edge?
There’s no doubt about it: Fury is the better technical fighter and Joshua the bigger puncher. In our Fury vs Joshua predictions, we remain perfectly clear – who can execute their skillset most prominently will win this fight.
4. Joshua vs Fury Tips
When we have a close fight that looks very close on paper, we simply have to stick to the facts – that is what we have done in our Joshua vs Fury betting tips.
Fury is the unbeaten fighter who will win this fight on points should it go the distance, and it was notable that he largely avoided the huge right hand of Wilder in their two bouts – albeit climbing off the canvas after getting caught late in their original fight.
For Joshua to win this fight, he has to catch Fury with a big shot and do something that has not happened in 31 previous contests – the Gypsy King is put down and stays down for the ten count.
And so in our Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury tips we are sticking to what we know – Fury to win on points at 2.87.
