TYSON FURY will NOT get the chance to fight Anthony Joshua – because Kubrat Pulev will KO the Watford boxer and end his career, according to Bob Arum.
American promoter Arum – who is working with Pulev for the June 20 fight – reckons Joshua's career is about to be ended by the Bulgarian slugger.
Fans are desperate for AJ, 30, to win so he can set up an all-British heavyweight title unification fight with the Gypsy King.
Joshua won back his WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO belts after winning his rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr in December.
And Fury now holds the WBC and Ring Magazine crowns after beating Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles last month.
But Arum – who works with Fury as well as Pulev – is pessimistic he'll ever get a crack at Joshua to claim all the heavyweight belts.
"AJ IS GETTING KO'D"
Arum claimed: "Take it to the bank: There won't be an Anthony Joshua after June 20.
"Anthony Joshua is getting knocked out.
"Listen, Anthony Joshua is getting knocked out, June 20 at Tottenham Stadium in London by my guy Kubrat Pulev."
Despite predicting Joshua's career will be over before any potential all-British unification clash, Arum claimed he would help organise the fight should AJ survive his Pulev test.
The American continued: "I would have no problems working with him on a big unification show.
"But I’m telling you, it ain’t going to happen."
Meanwhile, Pulev, 38, is currently locked in a bizarre row with his training camp over an unpaid bill of just £600, despite being set to earn millions from his fight with Joshua this summer.
