Fury: My Plan is To Beat Wilder, Joshua - Don't Care About Others

Former unified heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (26-0, 19 KOs) is motivated on one thing - to face both of the current world champions, WBC king Deontay Wilder and IBF, WBO, IBO, WBA champion Anthony Joshua.

Fury returned to the ring earlier this month in Manchester, and stopped overmatched Sefer Seferi in four rounds.

It was Fury's first fight since November of 2015, when Fury shocked the world by traveling to Germany to win a twelve round unanimous decision over Wladimir Klitschko.


At the moment, Wilder and Joshua are in serious negotiations to face each other in a unification.

Even if one of the undefeated champions suffers defeat, Fury still wants to face them.

"My plan is to beat Wilder and Joshua. Rest of them I'm not interested in. Rest of them are warm-up fights. I want to fight both of them. Wilder and Joshua have to fight me. No matter who wins against them or whatever, even if they lose I want to fight them both," Fury told IFL TV.

Fury was being positioned for a fight with Wilder in 2016 - but the 'Gypsy King' was dealing with a severe case of depression and issues with substance abuse.

Fury would end up losing all of his world titles and his license to box.

But now he's back in the swing of things and he's scheduled to fight again on August 18th.

Fury explains that he's not very worried about either of the current champs.

“AJ can’t box, he’s a big old wooden top like this. Looking for a big right hand and left hook. He couldn’t do anything with Joseph Parker, and he’s a very very very poor man’s Tyson Fury – no disrespect, Joseph," Fury said.

"Deontay Wilder, what’s he going to do? Follow me around the ring like this all day? Oh, he’s going that way, no this way, looking for one punch!”

Let's hope that it isn't CTE destroying Fury from the inside out. Something isn't right. That's for sure.

Would love to see Fury vs Wilder ASAP. Hell if Fury wants to keep talking s*** then let's have it this year, especially since Joshua and Wilder can't seem to come to a deal.

Fat boy got a lot of work to do before getting in the ring with either.

Joseph Parker, and he’s a very very very poor man’s Tyson Fury – no disrespect, Joseph," How is this anything but disrespect?
