Floyd Mayweather has tipped a new heavyweight fighter “to make a lot of noise” and end Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua ’s dominance.
Fury’s win over Deontay Wilder last month to claim the WBC heavyweight title, while Joshua regained the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight championships from Andy Ruiz Jr in December.
With the duo now in possession of all four major title belts, a unification fight beckons should they come through their respective bouts against Wilder and Kubrat Pulev.
Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has claimed a deal could be reached for the fight to take place in December to determine the number one heavyweight in the world.

“But the thing about boxing is that there's great fighters all around the world, and there's always someone ready to take that spot.
