Fury: Joshua, Hearn Have No Balls - I'll Fight Wilder in America!

Former unified heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has taken aim, again, at the two current beltholders, Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, in a fiery interview with BT Sport.

“I’ll fight Deontay Wilder in America, I’ll fight Joshua in London,” Fury said.

“I’m not afraid of going abroad, I’ve been abroad before on the road. It takes someone like me to go over and beat someone up. Because, at the minute, the Americans are showing the Brits up rotten. The Brits are running away scared, and there’s only me who’s saying: ‘Right, I’ll have to fight him!’”

Fury’s outburst comes after Joshua and Wilder’s camps were unable to come to an agreement on a fight — with money and location reportedly the main obstacles.

The 29-year-old former champion only returned to the ring last month — after two years out; dispatching of a drastically overmatched Sefer Seferi in four rounds.

It wasn’t much of a test, but Fury will fight again on August 19 against Francesco Pianeta as his comeback continues.

And the undefeated heavyweight is already looking beyond his next opponent.

“If I’m ready, I’m ready. If I’m not, I’m not,” Fury said of a potential fight with Wilder.

“I can’t have him calling us over here **********. And everybody in America saying: ‘Them British guys don’t really fight.

“I’ll go over to America and fight him, and knock him spark out. I’ve got to get Francesco Pianeta out the way and then I’ll come for Wilder.”

As always, Fury reserved his best for Joshua and promoter Eddie Hearn:

“Joshua’s a **********, I’ll apologise for him and Eddie Hearn — no balls.

“But I’m the man, I’ll fight you [Wilder], no problem. You might have had all the activity and all the motion, and probably the favourite going in, but when I win again, what are they going to say?”

Tyson Fury is saving heavyweight boxing and showing British fighters do have balls. If Wilder ends up fighting Fury in the states Joshua will look like a total *****. Fury is nuts and i love it.

[QUOTE=angkag;18970537]I'm not aware of any 'AJ fanboys' who don't acknowledge Joshua is avoiding Wilder for good reasons (as in Wilder might win). Financially its just not in Joshua's interests to take a high-risk fight with Wilder, doesn't matter what side…
