ANTHONY JOSHUA believes he will walk through terrifying Tyson Fury Mk 2 and bankrupt all of his doubters.
Watford’s WBA, IBF and WBO king ditched his all-action style to cautiously outpoint Andy Ruiz Jr and reclaim his world titles in December.
But The Gypsy King upped the ante three months later when he swapped his jab-and-move method to annihilate Deontay Wilder, inside seven one-sided Las Vegas rounds, to become WBC boss.
The dream, once the Covid-19 lockdown is lifted, is for the two Brits to go straight into a mega-money undisputed decider.
And AJ insists, no matter how many weapons Fury has in his arsenal, that he will return to his old ways and iron his rival out for all of the heavyweight gold.
The 30-year-old , who has been mandated to fight Kubrat Pulev first, told DAZN: “I’m working towards beating Tyson Fury, whether the bookmakers, believers or doubters want to be with me or not, I have to believe it. I am working towards beating Tyson Fury.
“In a way, it is overlooking Pulev but I’ve got to look through Pulev because I am going to walk through Pulev, that’s the mindset.
“When it comes to Pulev, he isn’t on my level. I’m walking through him. I want the boys at the top and I’m working through them all, that’s the mindset we have to have as fighters.
“So I’m looking at Tyson Fury like I’m going to walk through him as well.”
Bookies have Fury as the slight favourite to win the potential Battle of Britain after the undefeated 6ft 9in ace showed both sides of his skillset.
But the London 2012 Olympic golden boy is happy being the underdog and warned anyone trying to profit from his failure that it will come back to bite them.
He said: “When Tyson Fury is ready, I will not turn down that fight.
“I’m looking at the wider picture, I am thinking like the challenger and the underdog.
“I am not the No1 with the bookies and I have to put my name back where it belongs and all that is based on is trust.
“They have to trust that, when I get back in the ring, they’re going to lose if they bet against me and win if they back me."
