Mike Tyson has warned Anthony Joshua that he will be at a huge disadvantage against Tyson Fury because he ‘telegraphs his punches’.
The two heavyweight champions exchanged contracts earlier this week for a potential bout this summer, and former world heavyweight champion, Tyson, had weighed in on how he feels the fight will play out.

‘It’s very interesting, Joshua is a masterful puncher. But you can see his punches coming, he telegraphs his punches,’ Tyson told Hearn on his BBC No Passion, No Point podcast.
‘And that’s just a recipe for disaster if you’re fighting Tyson Fury and you’re telegraphing your punches – to a guy whose 6ft 7in, come on.’
The heavyweight division has a number of top stars waiting for their shot at Joshua and Fury.
“I think there are a lot of great heavyweight fighters in the division. Anyone who says that it’s a bad division is just jealous, it’s exciting,” Tyson added.
