According to Tyson Fury, there is no likelihood of a rematch between him and Anthony Joshua, the two-time former unified heavyweight champion.
In December, their fight stood between them and a deal that seemed nearly probable. However, after months of fruitless negotiations, Fury decided to challenge Derek Chisora in another all-English fight.
WBA heavyweight champion Fury attributed the negotiating failure to Joshua and his team’s inability to make sincere commitments to its realization.
Speaking during his promotional interview for his fight against Chisora, who was the British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion from 2010 to 2011, the Gypsy King said he was done wasting time with Joshua.
“At least I’ve got this to show for all the time I wasted on that big dosser of a coward,” an angry Fury said.
Speaking about Joshua’s supposed evasion, Fury claimed Chisora whom he had beaten in 2010 and 2014 was a much more formidable opponent.
‘The fight didn’t happen because they didn’t want it. After the first seven days of discussions, they never had any intentions of it taking place.
“‘Joshua realised how daunting the task was and he got talked out of it by his people and himself.”
Fury, whose WBC belt will be on the line will face Chisora come December 3 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
