Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua: Gypsy King thrashes AJ punch record with monster hook

Tyson Fury’s power has been put to the test on a punch machine – and he passed it with flying colours.

A fight is expected to take place between the Fury and Anthony Joshua later this year with December 3 being the date that the two look to have agreed on.
