Fan favourite Fury goes into the long-awaited Battle of Britain as the bookies’ favourite, despite his lengthy hiatus.

But former WBA and IBF heavyweight champ Foreman insists there are ‘many champs’, Joshua included, capable of getting the better of The Gypsy King.

During a Twitter Q&A, Foreman said: “There are a few of champs who can beat Fury.”

Despite believing Joshua is capable of handing Fury his first professional loss, Foreman doesn’t foresee AJ beating his countryman.

Foreman, the oldest heavyweight champ in boxing history, told iFL TV: “That boy Tyson Fury, you’re going to have to bring everything you’ve got to beat him.

“And I’m going to be honest with you, I just cannot see Joshua beating him.

“But I sure would buy some tickets to see what would happen, I’m that curious about it.

“But that Tyson Fury man, woooh, Fury – I mean, how did he get the name?”

After months of intense negotiations, Joshua’s promoter – Eddie Hearn – is hoping to announce the biggest fight in the history of British boxing this weekend.

Last week, Hearn said: “Next week could be massive.

“Hopefully we can announce the big one out there as Fury will be there.

“It would be amazing to announce that before or after the fight as it’s a massive show.”

Hearn’s comments come after Fury’s co-promoter – Bob Arum – claimed the fight was ‘dead in the water’, a notion the Matchroom Boxing chief was quick to dismiss.

The 41-year-old said: “We are all systems go. The fight is on, this fight is happening.

“All sides are reviewing the contract. I believe we will get an answer next week.

“I saw Bob Arum’s comments about the fight being dead but we know what we are doing.”
