Tyson Fury has explained why he feels he will NEVER fight Anthony Joshua and apologised to boxing fans.
Although a rematch with Deontay Wilder has been mooted, theBrit has clamoured for a fight against Joshua for years; as much to satisfy the public demand as to prove to the world he is the best heavyweight.
However, it appears as though the 30-year-old is resigned to never fighting Joshua after watching a fight between his British rival and the Bronze Bomber fail to materialise.
“I’ve already beat Wilder, so that is one down,” he told BT Sport.
“And I will do the same to Joshua, if given the chance. But I don’t think it’s going to happen.
“And I am sorry to disappoint the sports fans but Joshua – even with two hammers in each hand – could never beat Tyson Fury and they know it!”
Ever since the Olympian’s incredible rise to unified world champion in 2017, Fury has practically begged for a fight to be made between the pair.
Having held all the heavyweight world titles himself for six months, the ‘Gypsy King’ knows the pressure that comes with having a target on your back.
However, his willingness to fight literally anyone was perfectly exemplified when he travelled to Los Angeles and wascontroversially awarded a draw against WBC champion Wilder.
The American was scheduled to face Joshua in the summer of 2018, but a series of excuses emerged as to why the fight never happened and ‘AJ’ fought Alexander Povetkin instead.
