Joshua took part in an Instagram Live session with JD Sports, where fans asked the two-time and current heavyweight champion questions on the boxing world that has been suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.

When questioned on the fairytale fight, Joshua backed Tyson to beat Ali thanks to his use of modern ‘science’.

‘It’s quite interesting because in the era of Ali’s heavyweight reign, the heavyweights were ranked as cruiserweights.

‘So in the Mike Tyson, Larry Holmes, George Foreman, Lennox Lewis era; they started getting bigger.


‘Hence why, in the amateurs, they then created a super heavyweight division.

‘So the current heavyweight division in the amateurs is what we class as the cruiserweight division [in the pros], so Ali went from lightweight and worked his way up.

‘He wouldn’t have been a fully fledged heavyweight. Let’s say we bulked Ali up and added size and strength to him, I truly believe Mike Tyson would have won.

Mike Tyson became the youngest WBA, WBC and IBF heavyweight titles at 20 years old and boasted a career record of 50 wins (44 KO’s) and six losses.


Ali is considered to be one of the most iconic sportsmen in history and is the only boxer to be named Ring magazine Fighter of the Year six times.

Joshua continued: ‘Reason being, when you watch the fight between Joe Frazier and Ali you see a certain Tyson-esque style in Frazier.

‘Tyson used to study Frazier: moving, moving, hooks, hooks. He managed to put Ali down, it was a very tough fight for him.’

Fans have always had a keen interest in crowning an all-time heavyweight champion and for Joshua, it’s ‘Iron Mike’ in his ‘humble opinion’.

‘I just believe Tyson was better schooled because times have evolved,’ he added. ‘He was more developed with more science, more information. So Tyson would have won – in my humble opinion.’
