Tony Bellew has advised talkSPORT that Tyson Fury is ‘speaking nonsense’ when he says Anthony Joshua shouldn’t be on the identical degree as himself and Deontay Wilder.
The ‘Gypsy King’ was on talkSPORT final week and made it clear how he views the heavyweight division.
When requested about Joshua, Fury declared: “I believe he’s a third-tier heavyweight.
“I believe there’s me and Wilder that may simply beat all of them.
“And I do put Oleksandr Usyk up there too as a result of he’s a fleet-footed southpaw.
“However Joshua, I’ve mentioned it many occasions, all these different heavyweights can beat one another, as we’ve seen.”
After listening to these feedback, Bellew advised White and Jordan on talkSPORT: “He’s speaking nonsense when he says that it’s solely between him and Wilder, and all people else is on one other degree.
“Let’s simply get one thing straight – Deontay Wilder was determined towards Luis Ortiz and Luis Ortiz is about 95 years previous.
“It’s ridiculous what he’s saying, everyone knows Deontay Wilder is a one-trick pony.
“Don’t get me fallacious, it’s a hell of a trick. If the trick lands, you get up in an ambulance.
“However make no mistake about it, Anthony Joshua is much better than Deontay Wilder. Much better.
“The whole lot that he does is best. The one attribute that Deontay Wilder has over all these guys is one-punch energy.
“However there’s no level in having that one-punch energy if he hasn’t bought the skillset to land it, and he clearly hasn’t.
“It’s bravado coming from Tyson.
“I’ve bought all respect for Tyson Fury, he’s proper now the primary heavyweight on this planet, no-one can dispute that.
“However make no mistake, Anthony Joshua is simply getting higher.
“This can be a man with restricted expertise who achieved the whole lot on the pace of sunshine.
“Olympic champion, world champion, unified world champion. Each single particular person he’s confronted, he’s overwhelmed.”
Relating to who wins a possible bout between Joshua and Fury, Bellew added: “Types make fights.
“It’s loopy the best way the heavyweight division’s working on the minute as a result of I believe there’s a few guys who do have an opportunity towards Tyson Fury.
“I believe AJ does beat Tyson Fury, however he’s bought six rounds to do it. If it goes previous six rounds, I don’t suppose he beats Tyson Fury.
“To beat Tyson Fury you’ve bought to be keen to leap on him and never care what’s coming again.
“And I imagine the one heavyweight on this planet with the skillset, the pace and the accuracy who can do it’s AJ.
“Then again, with regards to matching different fighters up – I might imagine AJ beats Fury, however I believe AJ has actual issues moving into with Dillian Whyte in a rematch as a result of types make fights.
“Dillian will put strain on AJ and he’ll most likely commerce. As a result of it’s so fierce between them with the rivalry and the home stuff, he’d most likely get caught up in a battle and that’d be fallacious.
“If AJ went in and boxed towards somebody like Dillian Whyte, he provides himself a a lot better alternative.
“However when feelings participate, issues get out of hand, you get caught up within the second and also you begin buying and selling.
“I believe for AJ moving into towards Fury, he doesn’t get entangled with any of that.
“He simply actually jumps on him and throws and lets the punches go.
“AJ’s the quickest mixture puncher within the heavyweight division since Mike Tyson.
“No-one throws punches in mixtures with the pace, energy and ferocity that AJ does.
“As I mentioned, he’s bought six rounds to do it towards Fury. If them six rounds go previous then I don’t see anyone beating Tyson Fury after six rounds.”
