Tyson Fury says Anthony Joshua ‘won’t’ rematch Oleksandr Usyk and predicts Ukrainian to ‘STOP’ AJ if fight goes ahead

TYSON FURY doesn’t reckon Anthony Joshua will end up fighting Oleksandr Usyk again.

Joshua had the unified heavyweight titles ripped from his clutches in his Tottenham tussle with slick southpaw Usyk last September.

AJ immediately exercised the rematch clause placed into his contract to face the undefeated Ukranian, although Fury doesn’t believe the bout will come to fruition.

He told iFL TV: “I personally don’t think it happens because Joshua doesn’t want it and two if it does happen, which it won’t, I think Usyk stops him this time.

“You heard it here first, and I rarely get them [predictions] wrong to be fair, rarely.

“By the way, Eddie I see all the stuff you say about me not wanting to fight Usyk.

“Get your man to fight him and get that big L [loss] again, please. Prove me, wrong dosser, you work for me.”

Fury, 33, is currently preparing for a grudge match with old sparring partner Dillian Whyte – although he could’ve faced Usyk had an eleventh-hour deal to make an undisputed bout not fallen through last month.

AJ promoter Eddie Hearn accused Fury of ducking the bout, a claim that prompted The Gypsy King to say: “I’d fight Usyk seven days a week, 62 times on a Sunday in his backyard.

“I’d fight Usyk and Joshua on the same night, I don’t value them, they’re bums compared to me.

“So as for avoiding somebody, I’ve just fought Deontay Wilder three times. Do you think I’m bothered about a middleweight or some bodybuilder? I’ll annihilate them.
