TYSON FURY is willing to bet £1MILLION on Deontay Wilder knocking Anthony Joshua "out cold."
Wilder's manager Shelly Finkel and AJ's promoter Eddie Hearn have both said they are willing to negotiate a super-fight for 2023.
But Fury doubts British rival Joshua will ever step foot in the ring with the Bronze Bomber.
He told Behind The Gloves: "I'd like to see that fight but I don't think AJ has got the minerals to take that fight.
"That's it, I just don't think he will fight anyone that will knock him out. I just don't, that is my personal opinion.
"Wilder will definitely knock out Joshua. I'd even have a bet on it.

Finkel told SunSport last week: “If Joshua is ready or willing to fight us next, that is what we want and we will give anything to fight him.
“This has been a five-year campaign and each time they always try to say we have avoided it.
“Right now is the 28th of November, we’re saying why not fight next? Let’s just make the fight."
