Mike Tyson’s former trainer, Teddy Atlas, has expressed his views on the upcoming fight between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua.
Fury and Joshua recently signed a deal for an undisputed world heavyweight title fight. This was confirmed by promoter Eddie Hearn, according to Sky Sports.
The date for the fight is yet to be confirmed, but it could be announced in the coming weeks.
Speaking on The Fight with Teddy Atlas podcast (via Mirror), Atlas said: “I think Fury could stop him,” said Mike Tyson’s former trainer on The Fight with Teddy Atlas podcast.
“I like AJ, he’s a good fighter, he’s got good talent, he’s had a great comeback. I like all that.”I’m not going to say he has a china chin, I’m not going to say that. But I’m gonna say Fury has a better chin.
“And I’m going to say he’s been to dark places when he got stopped by Ruiz. He being Joshua. He went to dark places.
“Now he found a light and he lit the room up and he’s back into a place that’s lit. I just don’t think he’s that far away from a power shortage.
“I think there could be a blackout again, where his confidence [goes]. When I say the electricity, the light, I attach it to confidence, belief, mental strength and durability.
“I think that a blackout could happen in that generator of his again. He’s not far from removed from being taken back to no lights. So I’m going with Fury.”
