Tyson has fired a shot at Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, insisting he will remain undefeated for the rest of his career. The Gypsy King is scheduled to defend his WBC belt against the ‘Bronze Bomber’ on October 9, with a view to clash with AJ in the near future.

The Watford local will step into the ring to fight Oleksandr Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium next Saturday, putting his world titles on the line in the process.

Fury appeared on Gary Neville’s YouTube show The Overlap and discussed his boxing record and potential blockbuster fight with Joshua.

“I’ve never lost a fight. I don’t think I’ll ever lose a fight, no. I don’t think I will,” he said confidently.

“I don’t think there’s nobody out there to beat me.”

AJ has maintained his desire to fight Fury, but the 33-year-old has advised his rival to not look too far ahead.

“How can he have me now, if I’ve got a rematch with Wilder,” said Fury.

“The big thing is – I’ll tell you what they always do – and he already fell victim to it, Joshua.”

He added: “They talk about fights that’s not happening. Everybody wants to talk to me about the Joshua fight. They don’t care about the fight that I’m having.

“All of a sudden, they want me to look over what I’m doing and then get chinned. I’m laid on my back flat by Wilder and he’s taking my position.”

The heavyweight boxer revealed he has approximately two or three fights left before calling time on his illustrious career.

“I’ve only got, two, three fights left, because there’s no more challenges.

“They’ve all been beaten. I’ve got Wilder next and provided I get through that, then I’ve got AJ.”

Away from the ring, Fury battled depression and mental health issues that drove him to alcoholism, recreational drug use and extreme weight gain, which saw him take more than two years out of boxing following his victory over Vladimir Klitschko in 2015. 

Fury described: “When I was only young, Klitschko was a world champion, so I was always looking at him and when I’d completed it, it was game over for me.

“I didn’t want to continue, plus I was mentally unstable. Going into that fight, I was very depressed and down, and anxious.

“I always had that goal of beating Klitschko that kept me on the straight and narrow path, but after that goal was taken away from me, I had nothing else that I could focus on to give me that drive.”

He continued: “It was like a total downward spiral and I didn’t want to live anymore. I was happy to die at 27. I was happy to finish, that was it. Nothing or nobody could bring me back.

“Not my wife and kids. I didn’t care. Every day I woke up, I just wanted to die. Only people who have been through depression and all that sort of stuff will understand what I’m saying.”
