And when asked if he thought Joshua could have got up from the punches that knocked him down, Fury was steadfast in his response: "No way, no way, he can't move so he would never have got out of the way of Wilder".
Deontay Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight crown here Saturday after battling to a split decision draw against Britain's Tyson Fury in a pulsating 12-round battle. Wilder has emerged as a great heavyweight champion, and he continues to prove that.
There were plenty more backing Fury on social media.
Fury, who out-landed Wilder 84-71 overall, was caught by a short right hand by Wilder just behind the left ear to drop Fury for the third time in his career in the ninth round.
"I thought I won the fight.", Fury said at the post-fight press conference.
Speaking as a pundit for BT Sport Box Office, Lewis said: "They need to get some good judges, these judges were awful".
"With the two knockdowns I definitely won the fight", said the American.
Because of a rematch clause, both fighters were asked if they would like to do it again.

The board of directors at Mitsubishi followed suit on Monday, voting unanimously to remove Ghosn as chairman. Renault owns a 43 percent voting stake in Nissan , which owns 15 percent of Renault - and no voting rights.
"If someone showed you a video who didn't know the two fighters in the ring and said "this fella on the canvas actually comes back and almost stops the opponent at the end of the round", no-one would believe you", said Costello.
Frank Warren, who promotes Fury, says that regardless of the result this past weekend, a return bout should take place but he added a caveat.
Lewis, whose first fight with Evander Holyfield ended in a controversial draw in March 1999, empathised with Fury but nevertheless praised his fellow Briton for his showing at the Staples Center. "Let's give the fans what they want to see".
Manny Pacquiao, who has won world titles in eight weight classes, added on the social networking site: "Respect to Fury for sticking to his game plan and to Wilder for closing the gap with two huge knockdowns! Me and this man are the two best heavyweights on the planet".
From the moment the fight was made, Wilder promised he would do to Fury what he had done to every man he has faced, and that meant knock him out.
"One hundred percent we'll do the rematch". Fury used his twitchy movement and near-constant feints to disrupt the rhythm of Wilder, whose trademark looping punches rarely found their mark.
Heading into a round nine, Fury was leading 78-74 on Tapper's card and 77-75 on Edwards's, with Rochin having the latter margin in Wilder's favour.
Fury's compatriot and promising fellow heavyweight Joe Joyce had earlier secured his seventh professional victory when he stopped Joe Hanks of America in two minutes and 25 seconds.
