Tyson Fury has taken aim at Anthony Joshua by suggesting that he will avoid a fight with fellow British heavyweight Joe Joyce. The Gypsy King was recently unable to secure his own clash with AJ on December 3 after both sides failed to come to terms on a deal.

Fury blamed Joshua for negotiations falling apart and believes that the Watford powerhouse is ‘avoiding him’. Since then, he has guaranteed that fans will never see the fight as all hope looks lost for the long-awaited all-British showdown.

“I don’t think it will happen,” Fury told iFL TV. “If it was going to happen it would have happened in December when Chisora maned up and stepped up to the plate. I can guarantee you will not see it, one hundred per cent not happening, like you didn’t see Calzaghe and Froch.

“But I’m going to take on the man that has beaten him twice so it’s irrelevant. I’m going to knock out the guy that beat him twice.”

He added: “Me and Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world [is bigger], two undefeated champions not a man who has been beaten in three of his last five fights. He doesn’t bring anything to the table.

“In terms of money, I’ll earn double the amount from Usyk than from the other sausage. I’m looking to fight Usyk, Joshua’s nemesis, the man who made him cry like a little girl, ‘I’m 18 stone’. So, I’m 20 stone.”

Joshua is currently taking time out of the ring to assemble a new training team ahead of his comeback in early 2023. The two-time heavyweight champion has lost three of his last five fights including consecutive losses to Oleksandr Usyk in his most recent outings.

The Dillian Whyte fight is the most likely option when AJ laces up his gloves again but Joe Joyce has also been calling for a showdown with Joshua. However, Fury believes Joshua will avoid The Juggernaut at all costs.

When asked whether he thinks Joyce should fight Joshua, Fury replied: “I think so. I think he wipes the floor with Joshua anyway but then again, we’ll never see it.”

Fury recently declared that he will fight Joyce after his proposed undisputed clash with Usyk – which is being targeted for a date between February 18 and March 4 in the Middle East. Joyce is the current WBO interim champion and is third in the sanctioning body rotation system so may have to wait a little longer than expected for his shot at the Mancunian with former opponent Daniel Dubois at the front of the line.
