Amir Khan believes Tyson Fury is a better heavyweight than both Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.
Khan, who fights Phil Lo Greco in Liverpool on Saturday night live on talkSPORT, admitted the two current heavyweight champions are very strong, but have not been tested.

Speaking from his gym ahead of the fight against the Canadian Lo Greco, Khan was asked for his opinions on all three aforementioned heavyweights.
Joshua currently holds the WBA, WBO and IBF straps, while Wilder lays claim to the WBC belt.
Fury, who has not set fought professionally since defeating Wladimir Klitschko in late 2015, is aiming to make a similar comeback to the Bolton native.
He has announced his comeback fight at the Manchester Arena on June 9, with his opponent expected to be confirmed soon.
Olympic silver medal winner Khan thinks that despite his inactivity, the former heavyweight champion will beat both Wilder and Joshua.
He said: “The Gypsy King is one of those guys who is not scared of anything and he’s not scared of saying anything.
“He’ll say the funniest things in press conferences and I think he can fight.
“He probably is one of the best heavyweight fighters out there.”
Talks are reportedly underway for Wilder and Joshua, both undefeated, to meet at some point this year for the chance for the victor to emerge as the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis in 1999.
And Khan said of the outspoken American: “Big banger –if he hits you, it’s light out. But I don’t think he has been tested yet.”

Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua is the current poster boy of heavyweight boxing.
After a points win over New Zealander Joseph Parker last month, ‘AJ’ claimed the WBO title to leave him just one belt shy of becoming the undisputed champion.
Despite being 21-0 with 20 victories by knockout, Khan feels the Londoner has not been tested and is inferior to his British heavyweight rival.
“Very good fighter, he’s very strong – another fighter that’s not been tested,” he said.
“I think out of the bunch of three names you mentioned, Fury is probably the best out of all three.”
