‘I don’t value them’ – Tyson Fury says he would fight ‘bums’ Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk on the SAME NIGHT

TYSON FURY claimed he could give a beating to ‘bums’ Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk on the SAME NIGHT.

Fury was within a whisker of fighting AJ in the summer, before he was ordered into a contracted trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder.

And similarly, talks this year to face Usyk collapsed after Joshua failed to agree a step-aside deal for the unification to get the green light.

Instead, Fury is now defending his title against mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte, and brushed off the threat of his other rivals.

He told iFL TV: “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.”

Fury, 33, knocked out Wilder, 36, in round 11 of their October Las Vegas trilogy classic.

Two weeks earlier, Joshua, 32, was stunned by Usyk, 35 and immediately invoked his right to an immediate rematch.

But Middle Eastern backers were fronting money and talks for AJ to instead step-aside and allow Fury to fight the Ukrainian for all the belts.

Joshua’s side claimed the Gypsy King wanted a warm-up bout before facing Usyk, which would then mean sitting out for two fights.

But Fury has hit back and accused AJ of scuppering the undisputed title decider by demanding too much money to forfeit his rematch.

He said: “Just for everybody to know, the only reason this fight fell of bed was because AJ wanted more money last minute and he thought I was going to give him an extra five million.

“Usyk will get his fight with me not a problem, when he’s beat Joshua again.

“Then Joshua has no chance in fighting for the undisputed championship, end of.”
