Fury offers to train Joshua for Usyk rematch after being ‘wounded’ by loss

Tyson Fury has offered to train arch-rival Anthony Joshua for his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk – insisting he would "definitely win the fight" under his tutelage.

Joshua was outclassed in his battle with Usyk on September 25, losing his unified heavyweight titles via unanimous decision after failing to get close to the Ukrainian southpaw in north London.

He was almost stopped on his feet in the very last session of the contest, with the final bell sparing him what would have been a more damaging defeat inside the distance.

Despite the one-sided nature of the loss, his second as a professional, AJ has already set his sights on a contractually-obliged rematch with Usyk early next year.

Fury admitted he was "wounded" after watching Joshua come unstuck at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as their potential undisputed title fight is now further away than ever.

The pair were on the verge of securing a lucrative showdown in Saudi Arabia over the summer, only for a US court to derail those plans by ruling that the Gypsy King must defend his WBC title against Deontay Wilder instead.

"Usyk did his job, won his fight. Good luck to him. Was I wounded that he won? Yes I was," Fury said.

“I was hoping Joshua could win the fight but he couldn't.”

A Fury win over Wilder this Saturday and a Joshua win in next year's rematch with Usyk would get that all-British undisputed battle back on track.
