Boxing news: Anthony Joshua ‘will avoid Tyson Fury fight like the plague’, claims talkSPORT host Simon Jordan
Simon Jordan believes that Anthony Joshua has no interest in a future fight with Tyson Fury.
The former Crystal Palace chairman, who is a keen boxing fan, has spoken out previously about the ‘Gypsy King’ stealing AJ’s thunder in America, and now backed him to beat every other heavyweight in the division.

When discussing Fury previous controversial comments, Jordan said on the Sunday Exclusive: “It is sport. I think you have to be responsible for what you do and say.
“But in the end it should still be down to how you do your sport and how good you are.
“In his sport, I think he’s the best there is at this moment in time. I think that he’ll beat all of them.
“I think he beat Deontay Wilder, I think he’ll beat Joshua if he fights him and I think they [Joshua] will avoid that fight like the plague.
“I think he’ll beat anyone that’s put in front of him.”
This debate will prove immaterial unless both Brits focus on the tasks ahead of them in the meantime.
Joshua will face Andy Ruiz Jr in a crunch rematch on December 7 as he seeks to avenge his first career defeat and regain the WBA, IBF & WBO world titles.
Then, providing all goes to plan, Fury will rematch Wilder in early 2020 for the WBC belt.
