Former heavyweight boxing champion, Mike Tyson, has said that the IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, needs to learn more about boxing.
Joshua is currently busy preparing for his fight against Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev. The bout will take place on December 12.
Tyson himself is preparing for a comeback bout against Roy Jones Jr.
Iron Mike, 54, told ESPN, “That guy could learn some more. He could be taught some more stuff.
“I don’t think he’s a paper champion, I just think he’s a big guy.
“It’s hard to fight being that big; it’s very difficult being that big and having to fight a smaller guy.”
But Tyson is a bigger fan of WBC belt holder Tyson Fury.
He said, “I think he’s very good. He looks like he’s not intimidating, but he’s really elusive, he really knows how to box.
“He’s really smart and he’s really difficult to hit, and he’s seven-feet [tall], damn near. He’s a monster.”
Joshua will face Pulev, 39, at an empty O2 Arena on December 12.
He is then expected, if victorious, to battle Fury, 32, twice in 2021 as the Brits try and unify the belts.
Tyson, meanwhile, faces Jones Jr at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on November 28.
