Tyson Fury wouldn’t watch "bums" AJ and Usyk "even if fight was in Morecambe"
Tyson Fury says he has no interest in Anthony Joshua's upcoming rematch with Oleksandr Usyk and insists he wouldn't even watch the fight if it was staged in his hometown of Morecambe.
The Gypsy King announced his retirement from boxing after beating Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium back in April, denying fans the chance to see him take on the winner of Joshua vs Usyk in a mouth-watering title unification bout.
But despite continued pledges to stay retired, Fury has been flirting with the idea of a return for weeks and even suggested to talkSPORT's Jim White and Simon Jordan that he'd be up for it … if he was paid £500 million!
"I wouldn’t go to [Joshua v Usyk] if it was in Morecambe to see two bums fight each other," the 33-year-old said in classic Fury fashion. "If you want to see a real man fight, come with the half a billi and it’s on like Donkey Kong."
Despite his apparent indifference towards the fight, Fury says he thinks Usyk will get the better of AJ again when they meet in the Middle East later this summer.
"Joshua is getting beat when he fights Usyk again," he said. "Unless he gets his fat ass to Morecambe and lets me train him to win this fight, I don’t see him winning the fight and I said that last time.
"He will get beat again. Then it’ll cost the half a billi for the big GK to come out of retirement."
Would Anthony Joshua actually benefit from having Tyson Fury as his trainer? Let us know what you think in the comments section.
In their first fight back in September, Usyk put on a boxing masterclass to win by unanimous decision and claim the unified WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight world titles.
Joshua was criticised for attempting to out-box the technically gifted Ukrainian, and insists that in the rematch he will be changing his approach and will go for the knockout.
Whether Fury will tune in to watch the fight is anyone's guess, but the fact that he hasn't relinquished his WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles yet, despite supposedly hanging up his gloves for good, suggests he'll probably be checking in to see who wins at the very least.
