AN UNQUALIFIED nobody has given his professional opinion on the upcoming Tyson Fury/Anthony Joshua fight. 

The long-awaited heavyweight bout is likely to take place on August 14 in Saudi Arabia. 

But Simon Pickles, 43, offered his analysis to a group of friends while in a beer garden over the weekend. He claimed: 'It's obvious. Tyson is an all-round better boxer than AJ'. 

The full-time Uber driver has no experience in boxing whatsoever other than when he once fought Billy Lopez over an ultra rare pog in nursery. A fight that ended when Billy's older sister Charlotte separated the two. 

Pickles admitted he has never watched a boxing match and never even seen a real punch bag. He did, however, walk past a PureGym last Saturday and 'saw some big lads hitting the pads'. Now he feels qualified to comment on the technical side of boxing and feels comfortable trolling people 'especially in the comments section'. 

Speaking to The Daily Bellow, he said: 'I've done a bit of light shadow boxing in the shower. It can't be too different to stepping in the ring for 12 rounds with a heavyweight.'
