Tyson Fury gives emphatic answer to fighting Anthony Joshua after clashing with Usyk

Tyson Fury has insisted he has ‘zero’ interest in fighting Anthony Joshua after brutally defeating Derek Chisora. The self-styled Gypsy King left Chisora bloodied and bruised at the end of 10 punishing rounds to defend his WBC world heavyweight title.

The victory appears to have set up a mouthwatering fight between Fury and unified champion Oleksandr Usyk for all the heavyweight titles. Ukrainian pound-for-pound star Usyk was ringside to watch Fury up close and was involved in an intense star down with him as the Brit screamed insults in his face.

Fury made it clear he wants the fight with Usyk next and would be prepared to face Joe Joyce at Wembley if a deal couldn’t be struck. Before agreeing to fight Chisora, Fury had entered talks to finally fight Anthony Joshua in a long-awaited grudge match but talks collapsed.

Now, Fury has dismissed the chance of the Battle of Britain ever happening. Asked if he has any interest in facing AJ, Fury said: “Nadda. Zero. I want to fight with real men and real challengers who want to fight. Usyk wants to fight. He got in my face and wants to fight.

“We live in the same country and have you ever seen Anthony Joshua do that to me? And even Joe Joyce got involved and thought he’d be a part of the party, so big up big Joe.”

Fury’s promoter Frank Warren echoed his words by insisting they ‘wasted six months’ negotiating with Joshua. Saudi Arabia and England have already been mentioned by Fury as possible destinations for his potential historic fight against Usyk and confirmed his team are aiming to stage it in either February or March next year.

That is despite Fury claiming he could be out for six to eight weeks with an elbow injury and require surgery. However, speaking in his post-fight press conference, Fury moved to play down his injury, saying: “I’m not a doctor but from where I am now, I feel great. I hope I don’t have anything to mess up anything. I’m looking forward to an exciting 2023.”
