Why Tyson Fury Is Refusing To Fight Anthony Joshua In The UK

Why Tyson Fury Is Refusing To Fight Anthony Joshua In The UK

Tyson Fury has insisted that any fight with Anthony Joshua in the future must be fought in Las Vegas because he 'conquered America'.

Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn has recently stated a fight between the two Brits could happen in Saudi Arabia.

But 'The Gypsy King' thinks different and wants a fight with 'AJ' to be in 'Sin City'.

Fury told the Ak and Barak Show on Sirius XM: "Listen, that fight happens in Las Vegas and Las Vegas alone.

"It'd be MGM Grand Garden Arena live from Las Vegas, USA.

"I'm the one who's come to America and conquered America.

"Joshua came over and got knocked out by a little fat man.

"And then in the rematch he ran away from a little fat man like a sheepdog all night.

"He ran away. I thought it was disgraceful. He ran away like a sheepdog all night, like a s***house."

Joshua's only fight in the US so far was a shock loss to Andy Ruiz Jr last June.

The WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight champion looks set to face Kubrat Pulev in a mandatory title defence in the next few months.

Fury, who is weeks away from his February 22 clash with Deontay Wilder, also had words for Joshua's next opponent.

"To be honest with you, Pulev and Joshua are a pair of pussies, both of them.

"Not sure if I can say pussy on the radio, but what the f***.

"It's not a fight that's really interesting to me, Pulev and Joshua.

"I only wanna see the big fights and unfortunately for Pulev he's not part of the scene unless he gate crashes the party.

"The fights I wanna see is me vs Wilder, me vs Joshua and Joshua vs Wilder.

"That's it, there's no other players, the rest of the players are just people trying to gate crash the heavyweight division."
