The heavyweight fighter Hrgovic rates Joshua over Fury,”Joshua is the more complete fighter” – Hrgovic .
IBF, WBA and WBO champion Joshua and WBC title holder Fury are in the final stages of agreeing a fight to decide the division’s No 1, with promoter Eddie Hearn insisting, “We’re all systems go, this fight is on, this fight is happening.”
Unbeaten Hrgovic is awaiting news on a final eliminator to decide the next mandatory challenger for the IBF belt, with expected opponent Michael Hunter yet to finalise a deal.
Hrgovic told Sky Sports about Joshua vs Fury: “It will be a huge fight. I can’t wait, like a fan, to see that. I hope they make an agreement soon. A lot of people are writing off Joshua and are giving Fury the advantage because of their last performances.
“[They say] Joshua has slowed down. But in my opinion Joshua has more tools to beat him. He is the bigger puncher, he throws more combinations, he is good with the jab and fast with his feet, he is better at inside-fighting.
“Fury has his awkward style but that’s all he has. Joshua is the more complete fighter. I give a little edge to Joshua.”
Croatia’s Hrgovic won an Olympic bronze medal at Rio 2016 and has since racked up 10 knockouts in 12 pro victories.
