Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has attacked rival Anthony Joshua and wants to bring his old belts back to the UK
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has taken aim at British rival Anthony Joshua and vowed to bring the rest of the division’s belts back to the UK by defeating Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk.
In front of a packed crowd at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September, a battle of Olympic gold medalists saw Joshua outscored by Usyk and stripped of his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO straps by unanimous decision.
Additionally, the result also meant that a box office smash of the planned unification between AJ and Fury – which could have taken two dates in Saudi Arabia and London – had to be put aside and let everyone involved pass. next to lucrative salaries.
Almost four months after the disappointment, Fury put salt in Joshua’s wounds and blasted him for dropping the side.

“You big useless doser,” he said to Joshua.
“You let a little middleweight man come up and take all your belts” Fury said, referring to the unchallenged rise of cruiserweight king Usyk through the ranks.
“Now it’s going to take a real British Lancaster bomber like me to bring the belts back to Britain!” “
“You are useless dosers”, he blew up the pair.
“Honestly, bring them to me. I am the ‘Gypsy King’. Bring them to me and I will put them back in their place.
Meanwhile, in Ukraine, as he waits to see if his next opponent is Joshua in a rematch in April or Fury if AJ receives any money aside, Usyk has been caught training. under unusual conditions.
In a video shared on his Instagram Stories, ‘The Cat’ is seen in the snow with steam blowing in his direction while launching a series of shadowboxing combos.
Still, as Fury looks set to travel to Ukraine to take on Usyk if need be, Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has cast cold water on a comeback fight for the division’s most dominant champion if he is. meets her man again.
“We have the ability to organize the fight where we want, but at the same time it has to generate enough money to know that we have done our job,” he added. said the boss of Matchroom recently.
