Tyson Fury has come out to accuse Anthony Joshua, while addressing a potential war between the pair scheduled for 2021, of ignoring questions about him.
At the Jonathan Ross show on Thursday night, December 17, WBC Heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, accused AJ of ducking questions about having to fight him, announced that he wants to face his competitor in a contest tagged ‘Battle of Britain.’
Unified heavyweight champion Joshua, considering a two-fight deal already in place for them to compete in 2021, declined to mention Fury’s name after his knockout victory over Kubrat Pulev last weekend.
Fury, 32, was left bemused by the failure of Joshua to mention his name as his next rival, despite an agreement already in place for them to fight.
Speaking on the Jonathan Ross Show, Fury said The question was asked, “Would you like to fight Tyson Fury?” very plain and simple, and the question was never answered.”
‘It was an easy yes, wasn’t it an answer or no? They asked, “Do you think you’re the best heavyweight in the world?” and he walked away [holding his hands up].
‘Didn’t answer the question. Ask me, would you like Anthony Joshua to fight?’
Ross then asks Fury the question, who answers: ‘Yes’.
The self-styled Gypsy King was then asked who the world’s best heavyweight is to which he answers:’ Me, by a mile. We’re going there, that’s how you answer the question.’
The WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO world titles are currently owned by Joshua while Fury is the WBC champion. However, Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, insisted that if the governing bodies fail to play ball, the contest could happen without the belts.
