Fury names his ideal opponent if ‘middleweight’ Oleksandr Usyk snubs title fight

Tyson Fury fancies a Battle of Britain clash with Joe Joyce – as he confirmed his back up plan for Oleksandr Usyk.

The Gyspy King takes on old foe Derek Chisora in a trilogy bout at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on December 3. Fury is returning to the ring for the first time since knocking out Dillian Whyte at Wembley in April.

But there is little excitement about his opponent Chisora, with Fury having already convincingly beaten the veteran known as 'Del Boy' twice earlier in his career. And an undisputed title fight against Ukrainian star Usyk has now been earmarked for early 2023, should Fury come through the Chisora fight unscathed as expected.

Fury insists that he want to fight Usyk – but does not expect to get any credibility if he wins as he outlined next year's plans.

"We will have three fights next year," the 34-year-old told the Youtube channel of Frank Warren's Queensberry promotion. "I will get this man out of the way first. Usyk is top of the shopping list providing I get through this fight with Chisora and it's not another rematch.

"I know what people will say when I flatten Usyk. 'He was too small', 'it was a mis-match', whatever. How am I going to get credit for beating a man half my size? It is all for me to lose and all for him to gain."

Fury then laughed off the accomplished Usyk as a 'middleweight' and revealed that he has identified a bout with rising heavyweight Joyce if the undefeated star declines his fight offer.

"Usyk will be a walk in the park, I will butcher him," he added. "If he don't want any smoke in February, then let's do Joe Joyce at Wembley. Joe, get your skates on, get fit because if the middleweight don't want any smoke, you are in."
