Tyson Fury may have announced his comeback plans, but his former foe Wladimir Klitschko believes he will be no match for the current heavyweight champions.

Fury, who had pulled off a massive upset by out-pointing Klitschko in 2015, hasn’t fought since due to drug abuse and personal issues. But, the ‘Gypsy King’ recently announced his plans to enter the ring come June 5 in Manchester Arena.

One of the possible opponents for Fury could be Joshua, the IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO champion. Klitschko, however, believes there will be only one winner.

“Hands down Joshua,” he told the Sunday Times. “He is getting to be the complete fighter. Technically, size-wise, weight-wise, power-wise. And he is good learner.

“The other guy [Fury], like a fart in the wind it is there and it is gone. In the history of boxing there are a lot of examples of this kind of guy.”

Klitschko, who announced his retirement after losing to Fury, added that WBC holder Deontay Wilder would be a tougher test for Joshua.

“It would be a dangerous fight for Joshua. I’m not saying he wouldn’t win it but Wilder has something,” the Ukrainian said.

“Due to his weight, he is extremely fast. Maybe he’s kind of wild in his technique but those punches are coming from who knows where.

“He is hard to defend against – where is that punch going to land or which side is it coming from.”

Do you agree with Klitschko?
