Tyson Fury boasts he could beat Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk on the SAME NIGHT as Gypsy King aims another dig at his heavyweight rivals after seeing lucrative step-aside deal fall through

  • Tyson Fury has boldly claimed he could beat two heavyweight rivals at once 
  • Fury has been linked with mega-fights with Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk 
  • The Gypsy King is confident that he could easily beat the heavyweight duo
  • Fury saw an undisputed bout with the Ukrainian fall through earlier this year 


Tyson Fury has aimed another dig at Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk after boldly claiming that he could beat his heavyweight rivals on the same night. 

Fury, 33, has long been linked with a super-fight against Joshua, in what would be the biggest fight in British boxing history, only for a bout to fall apart last summer after he was ordered to face Deontay Wilder for a third time.

In a similar vein, talks between Fury and Usyk over an undisputed unification bout collapsed because AJ snubbed a mega-money step-aside deal to allow the fight to go ahead.

Now, Fury is set to take on WBC mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte, but he still has his sights set on mega-fights with Joshua and Usyk, insisting that the pair would be an easy night’s work.

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.’ 

However, the Gypsy King has dismissed the credentials of his two biggest heavyweight rivals

Fury defeated arch rival Wilder last time out in one of the greatest heavyweight fights of all time last time out, knocking the Bronze Bomber out in the 11th round.

A fortnight earlier, AJ lost his belts to Usyk in a one-sided unanimous decision defeat to the wily Ukrainian and swiftly invoked his contractual right to an immediate rematch. 

However, the possibility of Joshua stepping aside later emerged, with money from Middle Eastern backers fronting a lucrative offer for the former champion to allow Fury and Usyk to compete for the WBO, WBA, IBF and WBC titles.

Joshua’s side claim that the talks fell through because Fury wanted a warm-up fight before facing Usyk, while the Gypsy King’s team suggest that AJ wanted more money and the WBC champion grew frustrated with negotiations.

Fury has now clarified:  ‘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.’
