We finally appear to be edging closer to the long-awaited clash between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua, with promoter Eddie Hearn – who represents Joshua – declaring the fight a ‘done deal’ earlier this week.
No date or location has yet been revealed for the world heavyweight championship unification clash, but when the pair do meet, a former sparring partner of Floyd Mayweather has tipped Fury to finish Joshua inside the distance.
Dmitry Salita, who is probably most remembered during his own career for a 76-second defeat at the hands of Amir Khan in December 2009, believes that Fury’s training set-up will prove key in the outcome of the fight.
Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury ‘unbeatable’ fight
Fury raised more than a few eyebrows when he parted ways with his former trainer Ben Davison prior to his rematch with Deontay Wilder last year.
Davison was the man that Fury credited for helping him confront depression and shed over nine stone in preparation for his comeback to the ring in June 2018.
Davison had also cornered Fury in every fight since that comeback. However, ‘The Gypsy King’ opted to replace Davison with trainer SugarHill Steward from the legendary Kronk Gym in Detroit.
Salita believes that this switch will prove crucial in helping Fury become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.
The seventh-round TKO victory saw Fury claim the WBC heavyweight championship, setting his firmly on a collision course with IBF, WBA and WBO titleholder Joshua.
As great as Fury was on that night last February in Las Vegas, Salita believes that he will only get better the more he works with Steward . Fury vs AJ Fight
