“He lost, and lost by knockout. Well, he lost the last two fights with Usyk by decisions of the judges, he showed spirit in the second. But he was knocked out by Ruiz, who agreed to the fight at the last minute. So I really think that Joshua has always been overrated, although he can bring in a lot of money, ”said the vlogger coach.

Atlas believes that in a potential Fury vs. Joshua fight, the latter is likely to be scored early.
“I like AJ, he’s good, he’s got talent, great comeback. I’m not going to say that he has a glass chin, but I will say that Fury has a better chin,” Teddy emphasized. “And I also think the defeats took away a bit of confidence from him. He has been to a dark place. So there could be a blackout in his generator again. I’m betting on Fury.”
