Tyson Fury has ‘Kronk boxing’ plan for Anthony Joshua which is ‘unbeatable’

Tyson Fury ’s newfound Kronk boxing style will make him “unbeatable” in a showdown with Anthony Joshua this year, according to Floyd Mayweather ’s former sparring partner Dmitriy Salita.

Fury is on the verge of securing an agreement to face Joshua after years of waiting, with Eddie Hearn revealing over the weekend that confirmation could come in the next four weeks.

As well as earning the pair a staggering £75million each, their bout is likely to crown the first undisputed heavyweight champion since 2000.

Joshua holds three of the four recognised world titles, while Fury is in possession of the WBC strap.

But it is the Gypsy King who will head into their clash as the favourite following his dominant victory over Deontay Wilder last year.

Salita was also trained by Fury’s coach SugarHill Steward in his own career, the nephew of legendary trainer Emanuel Steward.

SugarHill works out of his uncle’s famous Kronk Gym in Detroit, where hall-of-fame fighters such as Lennox Lewis, Tommy Hearns and Wladimir Klitschko used to go through the gears.

And Salita believes Fury has now inherited the Kronk style of smart boxing and power punching, which he insists will make it almost impossible for Joshua to beat him.

“Kronk is pretty simple, it’s really a lot of emphasis on the basics,” said the Ukranian, speaking to Marc Gatford via the MyBettingSites.co.uk blog.

“I would say Kronk boxing is a combination of the best elements of the European stand up style, with the improvisation, rhythm, balance and emphasis on power punching of the American style of boxing.

“It combines both of those elements to deliver the best result. At the Kronk we always look for knockouts, but it comes in a natural type of way.

“So for sure Tyson Fury is going to go out and try to knock Anthony Joshua out. Tyson Fury is a big favourite against Anthony Joshua and he’s going to keep getting better with Sugar Hill in his corner.

“Sugar Hill’s Kronk boxing style is perfect for Tyson Fury. The system of boxing is perfect for him, he’s a great fighter for the system – he’s a born fighter with a very strong mind.

“He beat Klitchko at his peak, so he’s a tremendous, rare talent.

“That, combined with the skills learnt with Sugar Hill makes him unbeatable, or as close to unbeatable as you can come.

“Their philosophy on boxing is very similar, in terms of the aggression and the go-get ‘em style, and both Sugar Hill and Tyson share a passion to be the best in a natural way, being who they are. They align in and outside of the ring in terms of combat.”
