No interest fighting Joshua – Fury

Tyson Fury has no interest in fighting Anthony Joshua despite the fact boxing fans are longing for an all-British bout between the two heavyweights.

Fury described Joshua as a ‘big bum-dosser’ who was beaten by a ‘fat man’ and stated their bout was ‘dead’ in the water following AJ’s second defeat to Oleksandr Usyk.

The Gypsy King – 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.

Fury told Mail Sport he was only interested in bout that would make him a lot of money and he said there is more potential in fighting an American like Jones than there is fighting AJ.

However, Eddie Hearn denied such claims and said there is ‘massive’ money available for an all-British between AJ and the Gypsy King.

Speaking exclusively to Mail Sport, 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.’

Fury and Joshua had been locked in talks over a Battle of Britain bout last year but discussions broke down after the Gypsy King grew impatient waiting for AJ to sign the contract.
