WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury said he is ready to bet a million pounds on Deontay Wilder knocking out Anthony Joshua if they face each other.
I'd like to see that fight, but I don't think Joshua has the guts to take that fight. That's it, I just don't think he's going to fight somebody who's going to knock him out. I just don't think so, that's my personal opinion. Wilder will definitely knock out Joshua. I'd even bet on it. I'd bet a million pounds on it with anybody.
