Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder: Fight simulated after Tyson Fury's prediction

Deontay Wilder vs Anthony Joshua is an eagerly anticipated bout, but the wait for it goes on.

Joshua’s rematch against Oleksandr Usyk is expected to be announced for this spring, as the Ukrainian beat AJ last September at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

With the Wilder-Joshua fight not looking as though it will happen anytime soon, Boxing Fight Simulations on YouTube created a matchup between the two fighters using EA Sports Fight Night Champion, with the Bronze Bomber coming out on top with a knockout early in the third round. 

In the simulation, a big right hook sees Joshua fall to the floor and not make the count, with Wilder taking the win. 

With most news circulating between the two heavyweights, Tyson Fury loves to get involved, whether it is via Twitter, Instagram, TV interviews or sometimes even all three.

After talks of Joshua vs Wilder being a possibility in the future, The Gypsy King took to Twitter and Instagram, writing: “I’d say @BronzeBomber would KO the bum inside 3 rounds”, with the “bum” being Anthony Joshua. 

It’s almost like Fury watched the simulation before making his prediction as it is scarily accurate…

Over the past years, Fury and Wilder have shared the ring three times, with the Englishman beating the American on two occasions after the first fight was judged controversially as a draw. 

Previously, Fury has said he believes he is the number one fighter, with Wilder second to him, which makes sense with the way he believes a bout between Joshua and Wilder would go.

The 33-year-old’s comments on Twitter come in the aftermath of Joshua refusing to accept a deal that would have seen him step aside to allow Fury to fight Usyk for the heavyweight belts.

AJ was offered £15m to break his rematch clause with the unified WBA, IBF and IBO heavyweight champion, but turned down the opportunity.

Next up for Fury, though, is fellow Brit Dillian Whyte, with the pair set to battle it out later this year.
