Tyson Fury's new trainer Ben Davison has warned Anthony Joshua he could find himself knocked "clean out" by his charge's "underrated" power.

With Fury set to return to action for the first time since ending Wladimir Klitschko's heavyweight dominance in November 2015, many are billing the prospective meeting with current WBA Super and IBF world champion Joshua as a simple match-up of boxer vs. puncher.

Fury's new trainer Ben Davison, however, is adamant his fighter has several routes to victory and told ESPN: "One thing that's underrated about Tyson is his power.

"His style in certain fights has been to box, minimise risks by not holding his feet and not drive through the shots but if he needs to and hits any heavyweight on the chin flush, he'll knock them clean out.

"Tyson Fury has too much skill and too much altogether for Anthony Joshua. I've worked with other heavyweights and although I'm young, I've worked at a high level in boxing for a long time.

"Anyone who comes in against Fury and thinks they can make it a certain type of fight, they'll find they're mistaken. He's just got too much.

"Joshua is a big man. He's got height, weight, can punch and can box a bit. He's a dangerous man and a threat. He showed he's got heart but whatever he comes and throws at Tyson, Tyson will have an answer for."

Fury is expected to fight for the first time in two-and-a-half years in April, while Joshua is currently in advanced talks over a bout with New Zealand's WBO champion Joseph Parker.
