ANTHONY JOSHUA has revealed he’d extensively study Tyson Fury’s weaknesses if their dream domestic dust-up ever came to fruition.
British boxing fans have been dreaming of the duo trading leather for the best part of a decade but the fight, so far, hasn’t come to fruition.

But that hasn’t stopped AJ from strategising how he’d get the better of The Gypsy King.
“What do I do? I go back in history, I watch other heavyweights that I fought.
“Taller opponents, opponents that are elusive.
“Also watched a coach who’s training Tyson Fury, how he prepares his fighters.
“And then I’ll also watch Tyson Fury from a mental standpoint and understand where he’s weak mentally.
“And then I’ll combine it all together and go in there and go in there and do my best and give it my best and I’m sure that should be enough.”
A long-awaited Battle of Britain almost came to fruition earlier this year when Fury offered AJ a shock world title lifeline.
Joshua, 33, publicly accepted the offer, although negotiations over the showdown failed to bear fruit.
The failed talks paved the way for Fury to have a Tottenham trilogy fight with Derek Chisora, who he stopped in ten rounds.
Joshua, however, is hopeful he will one day share the ring with the WBC heavyweight king.
He told iDBoxing: “Well, on my behalf, I would like the opportunity.
“Because the longer we leave it, it’s not good for anyone.
“So, yeah, I would like the opportunity. Good luck with his next fight if he comes through.
“Then I think he’s going to go on to undisputed, and then I’ll be fighting somebody else.
“Then hopefully, we both come victorious, and then we look to fight each other.”
