Tyson Fury Picks Out The Main Reason An Epic Heavyweight Showdown With Anthony Joshua Won't Happen
Tyson Fury's rise to the higher echelons of the boxing world has been nothing short of sensational, but the former Heavyweight champion has spoken candidly about his will to fight Anthony Joshua in a British super-fight, but the 'Gypsy King' feels a showdown with Joshua will not take place.
Fury propelled back into the heavyweight limelight with a stunning performance against Deontay Wilder at the end of 2018, but while that monster Heavyweight clash was declared a draw, the boxing world believed Fury was the winner and that he should've snapped the WBC belt away from the American's grasp.
With negotiations likely to be taking place behind the scenes for a Wilder v Fury rematch, the British boxing fans are calling for an epic duel between Fury and Joshua in what would be one of the biggest fights in the history of the Heavyweight division.
However, Fury believes that Joshua will not be willing to get into the ring with him and speaking to BT Sport, Fury has apologised to the British boxing fans for the bout not taking place.
A confident Fury said: "I've already beaten Wilder, so that's one down, and I'd do the same to Joshua if given the chance, but I don't think it's going to happen. I am sorry to disappoint sports fans, but Joshua - even with two hammers in each hand - could never beat Tyson Fury, and they know that!" added the charismatic Fury.
Talking about Joshua and his team, Fury said: "It's a business, so they are not going to take the fight. They might say they are going to take the fight and talk about it and fight somebody else - like they keep doing - but that fight ain't going to happen, so I'm not holding my breath at all," concluded a frustrated-looking Fury.
