Tyson Fury beat Anthony Joshua ‘in every department’, according to Gypsy King promoter Frank Warren.
The prospect of a fight anytime between the two took a big hit a few weeks ago when Joshua was easily dismissed by Oleksandr Usyk.
This saw the Watford brawler lose his WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight belts to the Ukrainian.
Then over the weekend, Fury sensationally KO’d Deontay Wilder in his trilogy scrap to successfully defend his WBC strap.
The two Britons appear to be at very different points in their careers, but Warren refuses to dismiss the fight between the two.
However, he doesn’t think it will be great for AJ.
talking to talkSPORTThe 69-year-old said: “Tyson always felt, and I think anyone watching the fight against Wilder would agree, that he had AJ’s number.
“For me, he beats her in every department. He has a great chin, a big heart, he punches as hard as AJ – I don’t care what anyone says, look at those knockdowns against Wilder.

“And, by the way, would AJ beat Wilder? I don’t think he would have done that, at that performance I saw.
“But does he [Fury] Still want to fight? If it is there and if it were to happen, he would make a choice.
“I still think it will be a big draw, everyone has an opinion about what will happen in that fight, but for me there is only one winner.”
If AJ were to step aside and let us fight Usyak, he might have fought the winner.
Joshua will attempt a mission of revenge after instructing his promoter Eddie Hearn to waive the terms for the Usyk rematch.
The 31-year-old was easily outboxed by the former cruiserweight king on September 25 in front of 65,000 fans at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
But Warren urges AJ to consider stepping aside to let Fury go toe-to-toe with Usyk for all the belts.
He added: “If AJ had to step aside and let us fight Usyak, maybe he could have fought the winner?
“He’s got a rematch clause with AJ, it’s no secret. If AJ wants to part ways I’m sure we can easily have that fight, but will he split up? I doubt it! Maybe he Will, I don’t know.”
