- George Foreman believes Tyson Fury would beat Anthony Joshua in a fight
- The two-time former heavyweight champion believes Fury is the man to beat
- A fight between the two Brits is being lined up should they win their next fights
- Foreman admitted he is stunned at the amount of great heavyweights from UK
Boxing icon George Foreman insists Tyson Fury would come out on top in a Battle of Britain bout against Anthony Joshua.
The two-time former world heavyweight champion believes Fury is boxing at such a high level at the moment that he cannot see the Gypsy King losing his crown if he went toe-to-toe with AJ.
A unification bout between Fury and Joshua is being dreamed up by promoters but the British duo have obligations to other fights before that can happen, with Fury set for a trilogy clash with Deontay Wilder while Joshua will face Kubrat Pulev.

The two-time former world heavyweight champion was full of praise for Fury in an interview
Should the pair get through their respective fights unscathed, then a unification fight would certainly be the fight that would be on everyone’s lips.
When asked about the potential match-up, Foreman insisted that there would be only one winner in the fight.
‘That boy, Tyson Fury, you’re going to have to bring everything you got to beat him,’ Foreman told iFL TV.

‘I’m going to be honest with you – I can’t see Joshua beating him, but I’d sure buy some tickets to see what happens. I’m that curious about it. But that Tyson Fury, woo! Fury, how does he get the name?’
Foreman was also extremely complimentary of the heavyweight boxing scene in the United Kingdom, which is churning out ‘one great heavyweight after another’.
While heavyweight boxing is arguably as good as it has ever been, Foreman can’t wrap his head around the fact that it is the UK that is hogging all of the titles.
‘It’s strange how the UK is blossoming, one great heavyweight after the other,’ Foreman added. ‘It’s unreal. I don’t even understand it. I think it’s like something from Mars fell over in Europe, and it’s just producing one great heavyweight after another.

‘We’re going to have to move the Earth and turn this thing a little bit so that it starts falling back on us.
‘It’s strange. They’re not just flukes. They’re actually great fighters. Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, it’s like something from outer space. They’re not supposed to be from the United Kingdom. They’re not supposed to be from there.
‘Lennox Lewis, who is also from Europe, never got the credit that he as supposed to. If you name the top 10 fighters of all time, you get Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano. You can put Lewis anywhere in there, and he’s one of the greatest heavyweights of all time.’
