John Fury, father of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, would love to see Anthony Joshua score a knockout victory over Deontay Wilder.

Tyson had a wild trilogy series with Wilder.

In 2018, the fought to a controversial twelve round split draw. The 2020 rematch saw Fury score a stoppage win in seven rounds to capture the WBC title.

In the aftermath of their second contest, Wilder made numerous allegations against Fury - including claims that the 'Gypsy King' had manipulated his gloves and loaded them with 'egg weights.'

The trilogy fight, in 2021, saw both fighters on the floor, but it was Fury who prevailed with a dramatic knockout in the eleventh round.

Wilder bounced back last October, when he blew away Robert Helenius in a single round.

For his part, Joshua recovered after suffering back to back defeats at the hands of Oleksandr Usyk, by winning a twelve round decision over Jermaine Franklin in April.

At the moment, there is talk of a possible showdown between Joshua and Wilder on a date in December in the Middle East.

Based on their rocky past, it's no surprise that the elder Fury is backing the British star to overcome Wilder.

“I think we all know what happens. I’d love for AJ to knock him out, because Wilder’s a little b!tch. He’s a moaning p-ssy, forgive me for my language. But I just see [Joshua] getting chinned to be honest," John Fury told The Mirror.

“[Then again], AJ will knock [Wilder] out. And you know why? Because Deontay Wilder can’t take shots on the side of his head. Tyson, ‘The Gypsy King’ cracked his skull. If AJ lands in the same place, AJ knocks him out.”
