Carl Froch, a former super-middleweight world champion, has said the only way unified heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua, can beat Tyson Fury is by a knockout.
Froch, an English former professional boxer who competed from 2002 to 2014, added that Joshua would be outboxed by Fury.
Fury and Joshua are said to have ‘verbally agreed’ an undisputed title clash next year.
Fury is already the bookies’ favourite for victory following his stunning dismantling of previously undefeated American Deontay Wilder.
But Froch, who retired in 2014 after back-to-back KO’s of big Brit rival George Groves, isn’t ruling out a stunning stoppage win for Joshua.
“I think the only way that Anthony Joshua can win this fight is by stoppage,” Froch said in a recent interview.
“He can’t outbox Fury, who is too good at range. He throws punches from all angles and he’s so awkward.
“But Joshua is an Olympic gold medallist with strong fundamentals and he’s got combination punches with real aggression.
“If he produces the same finishing instinct that he’s shown in past fights, then he can beat Fury.
“AJ can get him out of there, I think he can, because you saw bursts of his aggression in the Kubrat Pulev fight.
“If AJ maintains that, there’s a chance he could stop him, but the problem is, if he doesn’t stop Fury then he’s going to lose on points.”
