Former World Champ Predicts Tyson Fury’s Downfall After Watching Anthony Joshua Fight

The former world champion has bad news for Tyson Fury, believing his career is over. He makes this statement based on Anthony Joshua’s knockout of Francis Ngannou.

Tyson Fury has consistently faced skeptics throughout his heavyweight career, with many doubting his abilities. Yet, time and again, he’s silenced critics by emerging victorious, cementing his status among boxing’s elite.

However, Carl Froch, a former champion, argues that Anthony Joshua’s swift victory over Francis Ngannou in a mere two rounds is indicative of Fury’s fading prowess. Froch speculates that the anticipated match against Oleksandr Usyk might not even proceed. Should it occur, he foresees Fury suffering his first professional loss, believing that Fury didn’t truly win his encounter with Ngannou.

“Fury must have just been having a really bad night – or, like I think, Fury’s past his best. He’s seen better days. I study the sport and I study the fights, and Tyson Fury used to throw 30-plus feints a round. Feint, feint. Draw his opponent in, feint. Double jab, right hand. He’s not doing the feints anymore. He’s doing four or five feints,” he said on Boxing Writers Club.

“He’s slow on his feet. He’s been knocked down five times [in recent years]. When you’re hitting the floor and getting hit on the chin and not throwing feints and not as busy as you used to be, that means you’re past your best and you’re on the decline and you’re on the slide.”

For the eagerly awaited clash between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury to materialize, Fury first needs to triumph over Usyk in their upcoming bout. Regardless of the outcome of their May 18 fight, as per their agreement for a two-fight deal, Joshua will face the victor.

This presents an ideal chance for Fury to once again prove his doubters wrong. Fury seems physically prepared for the challenge, appearing leaner and more toned than before. Is Froch’s assessment accurate, or will Fury refute yet another doubter come May 18?
