Klitschko vs Fury: Anthony Joshua backs Wladimir Klitschko will beat Tyson Fury
Last Updated: 25/11/15 4:14pm
Anthony Joshua has backed Wladimir Klitschko to sustain Tyson Fury’s attack and retain his world heavyweight championships.
Joshua has spent valuable time learning from Klitschko in his Austrian training camp and believes the veteran champion will do enough to maintain his 11-year undefeated streak when he fights Fury on Saturday, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Joshua, who has his own heavyweight collision on the horizon against Dillian Whyte on December 12 on Sky Sports Box Office, expects Fury to come out throwing - but says it won't be enough.
"The fight will be action packed right from round one," Joshua said. "I think Fury will come out with nothing to lose.
"His style is to throw a lot of punches but ultimately I think Klitschko's class will shine through and he will win."

However, Joshua (14-0) accepts that his fellow undefeated Brit (24-0) could mount a shock due to the unpredictability of big men in the ring.
Much like his own collision course with heated rival Whyte, Joshua believes that Klitschko versus Fury showcases the sport at its most exciting.
"It will be a great fight and it's brilliant for boxing both in Britain and on a world stage," Joshua added.
"Tyson and Wladimir are two very different personalities which makes it even more interesting for the neutral. The result is difficult to call, both have knock outs on their record and anything can happen in heavyweight boxing."
Wladimir Klitschko v Tyson Fury, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office on November 28, is now available to order via the phone and online.
