I could see Fury caus­ing Joshua prob­lems with his speed, move­ment, awk­ward­ness and un­pre­dictabil­ity. I’d lean to­wards Joshua but it’s not a fight I’d bet money on. I wouldn’t be sur­prised if it gets made now be­cause the de­mand is there. If Fury had won, I’d say it would have been eas­ier to ne­go­ti­ate. Miles Shinkwin

It’s no se­cret that Wilder isn’t the best tech­ni­cally and that was ex­posed again by Fury. I think Joshua knocks him out, but Fury vs. AJ will be a cracker. Joshua can box and punch, but Fury is the mas­ter of mind games. Can’t wait ei­ther way. Let’s just hope they all get it on! John Mur­ray

I still don’t think “AJ” is tested at their level. He boxed a well past his prime Kl­itschko and there are still ques­tion marks hang­ing over his abil­ity at top level. They’d be great fights, but, at this mo­ment in time, you’d have to make Fury and Wilder favourites. Andy Clarke

I’ve al­ways thought Joshua would beat Wilder. And I’ve al­ways thought a 2015 vin­tage Fury vs. Joshua would be epic but that the 2015 Fury was long gone. I was wrong. I pick Joshua to bring a sus­tained heat that Wilder can’t stand, and to wear Fury down to win on points, cour­tesy of knock­downs. But not a knock­out!
