Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Boxing - BY NICK OWENS

BOX­ING hero Frank Bruno has tipped An­thony Joshua to tri­umph over Deon­tay Wilder – if he con­tin­ues to live his life the right way.

The pair are tipped to go head-to-head next year in a con­test cur­rently be­ing thrashed out by pro­moter Eddie Hearn. And Big Frank thinks the Brit will come out on top in the super-bout.

The for­mer world heavy­weight cham­pion (right) said: “An­thony is a very se­ri­ous guy who trains hard and lives his life the right way. If he con­tin­ues to do that he can go and beat Deon­tay. But Wilder is a very dan­ger­ous op­po­nent. He is un­pre­dictable and has in­cred­i­ble power so An­thony will have to be at his very best to come out on top.”

But for Bruno there’s an­other con­test he’d like to see even more. “Ev­ery­one would love to see An­thony Joshua against Tyson Fury,” he said. “It would be the big­gest fight for many years in this coun­try. A fit Tyson Fury would give An­thony all sorts of prob­lems.”

Frank’s new book Let Me Be Frank is out now.
