Exclusive: Anthony Joshua doesn't stand a chance against Tyson Fury, says ex-champion

Bermane Stiverne was speaking exclusively to Planet Sport and believes the only person who can beat Tyson Fury is Tyson Fury.

The former WBC heavyweight champion has claimed if Anthony Joshua faces Fury then it will be 'the biggest fight ever' but it wouldn't end well for the 2012 Olympian.

Stiverne - the first fighter to take Deontay Wilder the full distance - made his prediction should the pair collide in the future.

"I believe so yeah. It would be a good fight, it would sell of course. It would be the biggest fight ever since Tyson-Holyfield," Stiverne exclusively told Planet Sport.

"This is a fight that I don't believe Joshua would prevail on this one. But right now, the only thing that can beat Fury is Fury."

Joshua is preparing for his upcoming rematch against Oleksandr Usyk. The fight is expected to take place on July 23 with Saudi Arabia set to host it.

AJ surrendered his three world titles to the Ukrainian southpaw but with victory, he can set up a history undisputed clash against Fury.

Despite the 'Gypsy King' stating he had retired following his win over Dillian Whyte, the boxing fraternity expects him to fight on.

Stiverne continued to talk up Fury, branding him 'unstoppable'.

"His personality, his belief, I think he is who he is in and outside the ring," Stiverne said when asked about what makes Fury so good.

"I have a lot of heavyweight friends and the person you see on the camera or in the ring is not the same person you see in the gym or at home. I think Fury is the same wherever he goes, he's not just putting on a show for the TV but that's his everyday life," added Stiverne.

The WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman told Planet Sport that there is no rush for Fury to decide on his future but will speak to him after his current vacation with family.
