News broke last week that both fighters and their teams had signed contracts for what would undoubtedly be the biggest fight in British boxing history with all the heavyweight titles on offer.

“It would be huge,” said Towey, who is Fury’s massage therapist.

“I think without a doubt it would be up there with the biggest fights in heavyweight boxing history, and I think it’d be the biggest fight in British boxing history.

“You’d have to put it up there with the Ali-Frazier Fight of the Century and Ali-Foreman Rumble in the Jungle - especially with all the belts on the line.”

While he isn’t privy to any inside information, Towey expects the fight to take place in the Middle East in the latter stages of June or in July.

“I think it’ll land in Saudi Arabia or somewhere in the Middle East at some point in June or July,” he added.

“It’s such a huge fight and it would be fantastic to be a part of it.”

Towey firmly believes Fury will have too much on the night for Joshua and will win via stoppage.

“I think Joshua will come out and try to stop Tyson early and I can’t see him being able to do it,” he added.

“I think Tyson will have too much for him, Joshua will gas and be stopped between rounds seven and nine.

“It’ll hopefully get confirmed soon and we can start to plan for it and look forward to it.

“I saw Tyson last week for a bit of treatment and he’s in great shape and he will be ready.”
