Tyson Fury was tipped to succeed by his uncle in the rematch with Wilder, but Peter conceded that even the 31-year-old can be beaten.

Joshua holds the other three major belts in the heavyweight division after avenging his sole career loss to Andy Ruiz Jr.

He said: "A man who almost done it the first time won't get it wrong the second time".

"But I'm not sure who will win (Wilder vs. Fury 2)".

After returning from his long layoff in tune-up bouts against Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta over the summer, Fury raised eyebrows aplenty by agreeing to face Wilder in December 2018. But considering the two knockdowns by Wilder, one can not say that the judges made the wrong call.

Wilder has since called out Joshua and branded him a "coward" for not "trying to step in the ring with the king".

"Deep down in his heart, I really feel that he's nervous from the first time". It was a draw, it was that close.

However, according to people with knowledge of the matter, Sony is "taking a wait-and-see approach" with the PlayStation 5. Then again, the PS4 sold for $399 at launch, but the cost to manufacture was actually $381, as estimated by IHS Markit .

"That's why I want Fury to win because I know he's willing to do it!" He should not get caught in the pocket with Wilder as one punch by Wilder is enough to turn the lights off for anyone. For Wilder to win he has to knock Fury completely out, and he couldn't do that the first time.

But behind the fighting persona lies a more vulnerable side to Fury, who has spoken candidly about his struggles with mental illness since dethroning unified heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.

Wilder feels "nervous energy" is behind Fury's decision to switch trainers and pile on the pounds ahead of their rematch. "He was saved because of the fight that is happening right now", Wilder said in a phone conference. If anybody should be changing up anything, you would think it would be me, since he says he beat me by such a wide margin.
