Fury will be waiting in the wings having confirmed his interest in coming out of retirement to fight the winner.

And even when putting his friendship aside, Parker claimed the Gypsy King has the beating of AJ and Usyk, likely by KO too.

He told Sky Sports: “Those are both great fighters, Joshua and Usyk, I just see Tyson being too much for them.

“Everyone’s going to say I’m biased because I train with Tyson and we’re very close.

“If I step back as a friend and think boxing, he’s too much, able to put on the pressure, able to fight on the back foot, very good mover.

“If he does get the opportunity to fight either of those guys, I think he’d knock them out.”

Fury, 33, announced his retirement after knocking out Dillian Whyte, 34, at Wembley in April.

But he recently CONFIRMED he would come out of retirement to face either Joshua, 32, or Usyk, 35, but at the cost of £500MILLION.

Parker, 30, said: “It’s going to take big money to get him back into boxing and into the ring and for battle.

“I don’t think he should retire. I think he should fight the winner out of Joshua and Usyk.

“And whoever wins that is the best in the world at this time and so he should come back and fight the winner.”
