Anthony Joshua criticizes Tyson Fury, but insists the fight will go place even if Oleksandr Usyk wins.
Even if he loses against Oleksandr Usyk in September, Anthony Joshua has stated that he will face Tyson Fury again.
Following the collapse of their heavyweight contest, Anthony Joshua has accused Tyson Fury of “betraying” the boxing world, but has stated that he will fight Fury even if he loses to Oleksandr Usyk.
Joshua and Fury were set to meet later this year, but due to a court arbitration order, the latter will have to fight Deontay Wilder first.
In July, Fury will face Wilder in Las Vegas, while Joshua will defend his IBF, WBA, and WBO titles against Usyk in September.
Fury, the two-time heavyweight champion, announced a two-fight contract with Joshua in March, the first of which will take place in Saudi Arabia in July or August.
Joshua told Fury that his followers were waiting for him to officially sign off the fight, and the two spent the next few months exchanging social media jabs.
NOT TO BE MISSED:
Then, on September 15, a US judge determined that Fury must fight Wilder before that date.
Joshua is scheduled to fight Usyk in September, but he has assured Fury that he will be waiting for the 32-year-old, indicating that the fight might still happen.
Even if he loses to Usyk, the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO champion believes he will fight Fury again.
Joshua told Sky Sports, “Unfortunately, his team let the entire boxing world down.”
“I’ll still be here, ready to put on a show,” she says.
“It’s the end of the year. First, let me go past Usyk. But I’ll fight Fury with or without Usyk in my life.
“Usyk isn’t the end-all solution.
“Usyk has no say in the Fury bout. The fight with Fury must go place. It’s a big fight, bigger than boxing and the titles combined.
“It will take place. Following the Usyk battle, I will defend my belts.
“The struggle will be larger and better than it was before.”
Fury has also refused to rule out the possibility of a rematch with Joshua.
He’ll face Wilder first, but Joshua has stated that he and his squad would subsequently “get their five minutes of fame.”
“I have to go past Wilder, then those guys will get their five minutes of fame,” Fury told Sky last week about Joshua’s entourage. I’m going to give them the worst beating they’ve ever received.
“I’ll take care with these guys later,” Brinkwire Summary News said.
