I would favour Fury, but Joshua has a few things going for him that Wilder and Wlad did not.Fury led Wlad a merry dance. Likewise Wilder in their rematch. Neither could find Fury to land on him. Too clever. Too evasive. Will Joshua be able to? One would have to suspect not.
Even if it's hypocritical surely you want the deal done as quickly as possible?
