BOXING legend George Foreman believes Anthony Joshua is the man to beat at heavyweight level… but has never even heard of Tyson Fury.
The American star, 68, fought against the likes of Muhammad Ali during his long, distinguished career.
But Foreman believes British hero AJ is the main man in heavyweight boxing now – and can’t wait to watch him go toe-to-toe with Deontay Wilder.
On Joshua, Foreman claimed: “I think he’s a legitimate heavyweight champion. He’s on the top of the list as far as one to beat.
“One day when they put together the Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder fight, it would probably be one of the greatest heavyweight fights in boxing in the modern day.
“Anthony Joshua is something special.
“What Anthony Joshua has is what every group of fighters should – he is conditioned.
“This guy works out, gets in the ring, gets knocked down in the 11th-round but he’s got legs to get up and fight and even earn a knockout like he did against Klitschko.

“He has the condition and the will to win. He could’ve existed in any era.
“I think he’s a good fighter and if he has god matches made then he can probably leave boxing about when he is 30.

“He can be done at that age. And he will be remembered as one of the greatest of champions of the world.
“I came back in boxing because I was broke I and I don’t wish anybody to become broke at 40-years-old and have to box again. And I certainly wouldn’t want Anthony Joshua to.”
Meanwhile, on the prospect of AJ fighting Tyson Fury, Foreman incredibly revealed he doesn’t even know who he is.
Foreman quipped: “Sorry. I don’t know anything about that nor the fighter.”
