What’s up with the Fury-Joshua fight? Champion’s father knows the whole truth


WBC champion British heavyweight Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) offered a December fight to compatriot antagonist Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs), but negotiations are difficult, and the parties now and then accuse each other of not wanting to make a deal .

Champion father John Fury
knows sure that there will be no fight. In everything, of course, the contender’s side is to blame: “What is Joshua’s team doing now? Delays with the signing of the contract. What for? Everything is simple! Anthony – Golden Boy this company. Defeat will simply destroy all their financial power. Fighting Fury at this stage of their career is like suicide for them. So don’t expect them to sign a contract.”

Fury, the father, believes that Joshua should not make excuses: “Everyone will understand if he just says:“ You know, I had a very difficult rematch with Alexander Usyk. So I’m simply not ready. I need a little more time to recover and just be with family. Dude, just tell everyone the truth! I think he’s a bit depressed right now. I think he doubts whether to accept the offer or not. They have this contract for almost a month, but things are still there.”

John thinks that Joshua’s team is “going to pull back and forth. And this can go on for as long as you want – a year or two years. Remember how much they fooled Deontay Wilder? Now, we don’t want that. It is for this reason that Tyson set them a clear deadline. He wants to start training camp, he wants to know who he should be in the ring with. He wants to enter the ring and amuse the fans with another knockout. And pulling the cat by the balls? .. No, we are not interested in this!

It turns out that Fury’s team even offered Joshua a way to settle all disputes. And ex-world champion Tony Bellew is shocked by what is happening: “This is already crazy, but what will happen next?”
