Anthony Joshua says he doesn’t fit Tyson Fury’s future plans ‘nowhere’ and has to fight Joe Joyce or Daniel Dubois if he wants to get back to ‘top table’


It looks like we won’t be seeing Tyson Fury vs. Anthony Joshua anytime soon – if at all – according to promoter Frank Warren.

Over the weekend, Fury took his record to 33-0-1 with a comfortable win over veteran heavyweight Derek Chisora ​​to set up what he predicted will be the biggest year of his career. in 2023.

‘The Gypsy King’ says next year he wants to fight Oleksandr Usyk first in an undisputed matchup and then follow up with a fight against ‘The Juggernaut’ Joe Joyce.

“We hope to see the biggest year of my career. [In 2023] we’re going to have the big fights that fans really dream of,” Fury said during his post-fight press conference on Saturday.

“First, let’s talk about Usyk. I’m ready, I’m ready to face Usyk next – whether in Saudi Arabia or here in the UK. Both locations will be fantastic.

“And let’s give the fans a champion, a name, a face. Usyk is ready for the challenge. He came tonight, so fair play with him.

Fury continued: “But if that’s not the case for X, Y or Z reasons, then we’ll also have Joe Joyce at Wembley next year.

“But provided the Usyk one happens, then I will and then I’ll also have Joe Joyce at Wembley, why not?”

That being said, there is another fight that fans are desperate to see and that is a ‘Battle of Britain’ clash with Joshua, but Warren says it’s not on his radar.

When asked where Joshua might fit into Fury’s future plans, he told iD Boxing, “Nowhere do we have better fights to put on now.

“He had his opportunity and like I say we have bigger and better fights.

With Fury no longer an option, Warren offered two other heavyweights as potential opponents for Joshua, saying: “I have no problem doing it against Joe Joyce or Daniel Dubois if he wants to get back in the table. superior.”

The likeliest option for Joshua, however, is a rematch with Dillian Whyte, as promoter Eddie Hearn says he is the favorite to face ‘AJ’ next year.
