Floyd Mayweather Gives The Most Mayweather Response For Fury Vs Joshua Prediction

Floyd Mayweather Gives The Most Mayweather Response For Fury Vs Joshua Prediction

Floyd Mayweather hilariously refused to predict the winner of Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua after he said that he isn't "getting paid" to offer a proper verdict.

Brit superstars Fury and Joshua hold all of the major heavyweight titles in boxing and are heavily linked for a unification clash before the end of 2020.

Ex-boxing superstar Mayweather, who plans to "come out of retirement" this year, praised both 'AJ' and WBC champ Fury as incredible fighters.

However, the 43-year-old American star was completely uninterested in offering a prediction for a mega-unification match because he wasn't getting paid.

"Boxing is strong all around the world, and even if I was in the US I would say the same thing," Mayweather said at an event in London's York Hall.

"Just because you win one fight, that doesn't define your career. You can be up here today and down here tomorrow, so no fighter should ever take that for granted.

"Anthony Joshua is a hell of a fighter. Tyson Fury is [a] hell of a fighter. It doesn't matter who wins, if I'm not getting paid that's none of my business.

"But the thing about boxing is that there's great fighters all around the world, and there's always someone ready to take that spot.

"There's going to be a heavyweight who is not from the UK and not from the US who is going to make a lot of noise. Everybody remember that, mark it down."

Joshua regained his championship titles last December when he avenged his only defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia.

Fury became the new WBC champion after his sensational victory over fierce rival Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas last month.

"Now we will sit down and go through all the details for the fight," the Top Rank founder and CEO told ESPN.

"We realised that date was the favourite of both ESPN and Fox because it comes at a dead time in sports, which is good for the fight.

"It's after the basketball playoffs, baseball is in the middle of the season and there's no football. It's the ideal time.

"The hotel, MGM Grand, also believes it to be an ideal time."
