Mike Tyson claims he would defeat Fury and Joshua in his prime

- Mike Tyson is confident he would defeat Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua at his prime

- The Baddest Man on the Planet became the youngest ever heavyweight champion at age 20

- Tyson, however, admitted he would lose to Muhammad Ali during his best years

Mike Tyson is sure of coming out victorious if a fight was staged between both Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua in his prime.

Tyson became the youngest heavyweight champions at the age of 20 when he defeated Trevor Berbick in 1985.

Fury and Joshua currently hold the four belts in the heavyweight division and Tyson believes it would be his if he challenges both Brits at his peak.

"Listen, if you’re asking me if I was 20 years old, yes, there’s no doubt," he said.

"They’re really good fighters and I respect all these skills, it would have been very tough fighting them."

Tyson stopped short, however, of saying he would beat Muhammad Ali had the two fought in the same era.

However, the Baddest man on the Planet claims he would have lost to Muhammad Ali in the same time he won the heavyweight championships.

That fight between Tyson and Ali was recently simulated by the World Boxing Super Series who held an e-version of their popular tournament.

Tyson beat Ali in the final - but Tyson does not agree to the result claiming it would have been a different ball game in real life.

"I know it’s a fantasy game," he said. "Most likely I would win the fantasy, I wouldn't win the real fight. Ali's the greatest there’s ever been."
