Tyson Fury didn’t beat around the bushes when asked about Anthony Joshua
Anthony Joshua is currently on the road back to redeption after losing all his belts against Oleksandr Usyk with rematch included. By the end of last year, AJ was still licking his wounds and probably didn’t feel well-enough to fight against Tyson Fury right away. Fury was fresh out of winning another fight and wanted to get back in the ring as soon as possible. That possibility with Joshua presented itself but the younger fighter didn’t endup choosing to fight. Fury is down to fight whoever he can get his gloces on, as long as it’s boxing we are talking about.
In a recent interview with Sport Bible, Tyson Fury offered an update on his plans for 2023 but he completely dissed Anthony Joshua. To offer more context, promoter Eddie Hearn publicly said that Anthony Joshua would fight Tyson Fury next but only if he beats his next opponent. Anthony Joshua is scheduled to fight against Jermaine Franklin on April 1st. The two heavyweights are fighting in London. Hearn is convinced his big man would be open to fight Fury but the champion’s reaction was pretty clear. Also, Fury revealed he would only fight Ngannou if his fight with Usyk doesn’t happen, but inside a cage.
After dissing Joshua, Tyson Fury revealed he would fight Ngannou but only with four ounce gloves on. This is what he told Sport Bible: “I don’t even [want to] go there anymore. Finished. No interest in any AJ questions. Zero. Man’s dead in my eyes. There’s no business between me and him to be done. Finished. From 2017 to, however long it’s been, 2022 – trying to make a fight. So, it’s not happening.
“My offer to Ngannou is on the table. Like I said, if Usyk don’t fight then I’ll be looking to make the Ngannou fight. I’m going to do a two-fight deal in a boxing ring and in the cage. I’ve never asked him to fight in the boxing ring. I always said the cage. The deal was cage, four-ounce gloves – let’s get it on. In a boxing ring it would be a pointless contest. It’d be like me fighting someone at the local gym – bodybuilding gym. But in a cage with four once gloves on, anything can happen.”
