Tyson Fury, the world boxing council’s heavyweight champion had recently disclosed that he has no intent in going one on one with British-Nigerian boxer, Anthony Joshua.
The self acclaimed ‘Gypsy King’ stated that Joshua is not in his league anymore and described him as a ‘big bum-dosser’ who was beaten by a ‘fat man’.
Despite the fans of the sports are willing to see their fight in the nearest future, Fury killed their hopes, stating that their fight was ‘dead’ in the water following AJ’s second defeat to Oleksandr Usyk.
The British boxer who is taking on Francis Ngannou in a highly anticipated crossover bout in Saudi Arabia next month – says he’s more interested in fighting the likes of Jon Jones.
While speaking with Mail Sport exclusively, Fury said that he was only interested in a fight that would make him a lot of money.
According to him, there is more potential in fighting an American like Jones than there is fighting AJ.
However, Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn denied such claims and said there is ‘massive’ money available for an all-British between AJ and the Gypsy King.
But in reaction, Fury said: “I don’t really care what he says. He’s a bum in my opinion. He’s just one big bum-dosser that has been knocked out three times.
He’s been knocked out twice and had three losses. He can’t even compare in my league anymore. It’s not even a fight I am thinking about anymore. I’m not even interested.
That bubble has been burst. His virginity has been taken away so it’s not interesting for me anymore. He’s been spanked by Usyk twice and been beaten by a fat man. So it’s not in my interest to beat him.
I am fighting a guy who is in his prime, who is a champion, who is bigger than him, who is stronger than him and who is a bigger knockout puncher than him.
He needs to get to the back of the queue. That fight is gone, it’s dead. That fight was off the cards as soon as he got beaten.”
