Fury Does Not Expect Network Conflicts To Derail a Joshua Fight

As previously reported on, Tyson Fury has vowed to "destroy" anyone in his path - namely Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder - as he prepares to make his long-awaited boxing comeback.

The former WBA, WBO, IBO and IBF world heavyweight champion has not fought since sensationally dethroning Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf in November 2015.

After a number of personal problems, including battles with his weight and depression, as well as serving a backdated two-year doping ban, Fury is set to return to the ring against Albania's Sefer Seferi in Manchester on June 9.


Fury's road to recovery has prompted talk of him facing Joshua and Wilder in the future, although it seems likely the latter pair will meet before then in a bout to unify the division.

Joshua (21-0), holds the three belts Fury took from Klitschko while Wilder (40-0) is the WBC champ, but the ever-confident Fury remains firm in his belief he would beat both men.

However, a large number of fans are concerned about a potential television conflict when it comes to making Joshua vs. Fury.

Fury recently signed a promotional agreement with Frank Warren, who is tied to BoxNation and BT Sports, while Joshua is promoted by Eddie Hearn of Matchroom, who have an exclusive agreement in the UK with Sky Sports.

Fury believes the fight is way too big to get derailed by network conflicts.

“I keep hearing all this ‘different TV stations stuff is going to affect things’,” Fury said on social media.

“Listen – they’re all a pack of s***houses. No television station is going to affect anything.

“I’ll fight them for free, because if they can beat me they deserve all the money because I must be s***.”

Joshua and Wilder are currently in discussions to face each other in a highly anticipated unification, which may land in the fall if agreed upon.

Whyte isn't even involved right now and Wilder still won't sign for the fight because contract issues are too complicated. Wilder knew that putting Joshua into a stipulation with a Whyte fight was a contractual and legal nightmare and could…

[QUOTE=SUBZER0ED;18820883]Agreed, but as I said before, with Whyte already as the #1 contender to Wilder's belt, he shouldn't have to fight the guy who just lost to him. But definitely, the risk is greater than the reward. Wilder ducked Whyte…
