He urged Fury to defeat Oleksandr Usyk so that he can finally face the Nigerian nightmare in the ‘biggest fight in the history’ of boxing.

The British promoter said; “I am so proud of him because there was a huge amount of pressure. “On this form, there is no man that can beat him. Tyson Fury please beat Usyk because you will get the biggest fight in the history of the sport.

“He is a fighter, he is an inspiration to young people. What I said would happen, happened. He destroyed Francis Ngannou. He is a beast and I cannot wait for him to beat Tyson Fury.”

Joshua will now hope to fight the winner of Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk, who meet in their historic undisputed title showdown on 18 May.
