Former world champion Anthony Joshua (27-3, 24 KO) admitted that he was not surprised by the problems encountered by WBC titleholder Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KO) against Francis Ngannou last October.

AJ notes that some people refer to the 35-year-old Fury as the "greatest," but he does not share that view.

"I've watched Tyson Fury fight many times - people claim he's the greatest, but I think if I were to box Tyson Fury, the fight would be much like facing Ngannou," said Joshua.

Joshua had his last fight in December against Sweden's Otto Wallin. Anthony won by technical knockout in the fifth round.

Earlier, Ngannou compared Joshua and Fury, expressing doubts about AJ's ability to take a punch.
