Anthony Joshua’s Old Opponent, Eric Molina Tips Him To Win Fight Against Tyson Fury By Knockout
Heavyweight veteran, Eric Molina, who lost to Anthony Joshua in December 2016 by knockout in the third round, has said he sees Joshua scoring a sensational knockout victory over Tyson Fury.
Fury, who is the current holder of the WBC title, is preparing to unseat Joshua, the unified heavyweight champion, holding the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO titles.
The heavy weight champion will be going into this matchup as an underdog, although Fury has been out of the ring since February 2020, when he dropped and stopped Deontay Wilder from getting the WBC title.
The long-awaited heavy battle of Britain is close to being finalised; handlers of both boxers are in deep negotiations.
Both parties are confident an agreement will be reached in the coming weeks for a potential full division unification for the summer.
However, speaking on the match, Molina thinks Joshua would defeat Fury by Knock Out (KO).
In his words;
I can see Anthony Joshua knocking out Tyson Fury. I can see that happening. If you look at Tyson Fury, he does somethings similar to me defensively against Wilder, which is to stay away from one or two big shots.
I’ve always had my strength of when I sparred big punchers, I’ve always said bring me the big punchers because I could see one, two, or three shots. I could get a read. Wilder gives you a big read like [winding up].
He’s coming har, but he’s giving me all that. So, by the time I see that, I’m moving. I’m not just going to stand there. The ones that stand there like this [covering up] against Wilder, you’re going to get hurt. I already knew that I wasn’t just going to pick up my gloves up to take a shot like that.
The same way Tyson Fury does not do that. What Joshua does; he doesn’t give you that boom. He’s very fluid with his punches. He comes with three, four, five, maybe even a six.
Promoters of the event are hoping to officially announce the biggest fight in the history of British boxing later this month.
