ANTHONY JOSHUA “cannot technically beat Tyson Fury” and must “go for the kill” to stand any chance of beating the Gypsy King, says Amir Khan.
The two British stars say they have agreed terms on a two-fight deal for 2021 to unify the heavyweight division.

We may have to wait a little longer to see that showdown due to Dillian Whyte’s legal threat to ensure he receives his mandatory shot at WBC champ Fury first.
However, that is not stopping almost everybody else from discussing the mouthwatering clash between the 31-year-old and AJ.
Now former unified light-welterweight world champion Khan has offered his thoughts on what the outcome will be.
And he does not give Joshua much of a chance unless he goes for the KO instead of turning it into a technical battle.
Speaking to Fighthype, he said: “Fury-Joshua, what a fight that’ll be. It’ll be good for boxing.
“I think it will, yeah, because they both want to prove who the best is in the UK. It’s a UK fight, and it’ll be massive.
“I think it will because they both want to prove a point, and they want to show who number one is.”
He continued: “They don’t just want to win. Joshua and Fury intend to succeed properly to say, and they don’t want to win and have a close fight. The two of them want to make sure that they won easily.”

And when quizzed on the outcome, Khan added: “I think when it comes to technique and being technical, and then you have Fury by a mile.
“I think AJ has to go in there and go for the kill.
“He [Joshua] might be stronger, and he might be the harder hitter, but he has to go in there hoping he’ll win the fight.”
