Legendary cutman Jacob Duran, who once worked with Wladimir Klitschko, and now collaborates with his former rival Tyson Fury, shared his opinion about the possible duel of the “Gypsy King” with Anthony Joshua.
“I thought that the fight between Wladimir Klitschko and Anthony Joshua would be great. It really turned out to be great, but the fight between Fury and Joshua will be even bigger, since they are both from Great Britain. Looking at the technique … I have already said that honesty is the only thing is important in this game. You can’t talk bullshit about a fighter. And we see people always try to sell bullshit to boxers: “You look great.” This is unfair to a fighter.
As for my prediction for the fight, they both met with Wladimir Klitschko. Vladimir lost to both of them. But when I first saw Tyson Fury, I thought it would be an easy win for Klitschko. I didn’t understand his style. When he fought Wilder, I became a fan of him because he was stylistically similar to Mayweather. You can’t teach someone to fight like Tyson Fury because there is only one Tyson Fury. He’s very unconventional.
So in this fight I give him the advantage. Joshua is a super fighter, but he has a more standard base than Tyson. Fury throws a lot of punches from different positions, so I lean in his direction, “- said Jacob Duran in an interview with the RT Sport MMA YouTube channel.
