Anthony Joshua hits back at claims he’ll receive £15m to step aside and let Fury fight Usyk
Anthony Joshua has recorded a video online to make clear that he is not prepared to step aside and let Tyson Fury fight Oleksandr Usyk.
There had been reports in the English media that Joshua could accept a fee of 15 million pounds to not fight the Ukrainian in a rematch, but he has emphatically denied this.
“You know what’s mad about all these interviews I see? I see certain interviews that quote what I said,” Joshua said in the video.
“But I think to myself, ‘I ain’t done no interviews. Where did this person get this information from?’
“I’m hearing people saying, ‘AJ accepts 15 million pounds to step aside.’ I ain’t signed no contract; I ain’t seen no contract.
“So, as it stands, stop listening to the bulls**t until it comes from me. I’m the man in control of my destiny, I’m the man that handles my business.
“I’m a smart individual and I make calculated decisions every step of the way.
“Don’t listen to the bulls**t from other sources. If I tell you something, then you know it’s real.”
