    Briedis would win, despite the size difference.

    I rarely disagree with Charlie here, and Briedis I can't praise enough, but I would take Hughie over Briedis in a heavyweight fight. Hughie's just a basket of skills, with height and reach to go with them, though he's not focused on knocking opponent's out.

    What I said about Joshua is that he is has power, good punching technique, but muscle-bound with low stamina and no legs.

    I'm glad Tyson agrees with me:

    ""I always knew what he was. I'll tell you what he is. He's a big man with a puncher's chance. That's it. He's got no footwork, no speed and no stamina neither. I will box rings round him "

    It's not a surprise that Fury wants to fight Joshua as he hates him and his promotor Eddie Hearn.Joshua had this to say about Vitali'when i got in the ring i saw Vitali really staring me down and i thought dont worry about that mate we can do a few rounds too' so much for his humble mr nice guy persona which of course is fake as the guys a former drug dealer.Joshua also mentioned that he's from the streets when referring or threatening Vitali.Vitali 5 or 6 years ago would have cleaned the thugs clock,would have given him an absolute hiding but at 45 he's most likely to old but there's no doubt the thought of coming back to fight Joshua would have or is running through his mind.But maybe Vitali could come back at 45,he's very strong has an iron chin and a very scientific style so i would never write him off.

    That big palooka got (very) lucky against a middle aged Wlad...who would have easily dispatched the thug 5+ years ago.
    I cannot wait to see Fury whip that boy like a stepchild!
