Tyson Fury backed to fight Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk winner by Hafthor Bjornsson… who wants ringside seat | The Sun

HAFTHOR BJORNSSON wants to watch ringside as Tyson Fury makes a comeback to fight Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk.

Fury has maintained ever since knocking out Dillian Whyte in April that he is retired from boxing.

But the chance to fight either AJ or Usyk for the undisputed title could become a reality after the heavyweight pair rematch.

And Reign total body fuel athlete Bjornsson, 33, is among those urging Fury to avoid hanging up his gloves just yet.

He said: "I hope so, 100 per cent. Whoever wins that fight – Joshua or Usyk – he definitely needs to fight the winner.

"I would love to see that fight, as a matter of fact I would possibly go to the fight if I had the time. It will be a huge fight."

Joshua, 32, was beaten by Usyk, 35, last September which leads to their rematch on August 20 in Saudi Arabia.

Fury, 33, has backed long-time rival AJ to win so that he can make a comeback and commence the Battle of Britain.

But Thor – who is in talks to fight the Gypsy King in an exhibition – cannot split Joshua and Usyk.

He said: "They're both probably putting in a s*** ton of work, but it's always the small things, just staying 100 per cent focussed at all times.

"Picking the right sparring partners, all those details, the recovery work, the diet, the sleep.

"They're both great fighters, it could go either way, honestly, I can't really say."
