Joshua: I Told Fury, 'If We Get Fight Together - Don't Worry About Usyk'

WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has revealed the conversation which took place when he unexpectedly saw Tyson Fury in Marbella.

The two boxers were on holiday in the area. Fury, driving his car down the street, stopped to have a chat when he saw Joshua.

Joshua and Fury, provided they end the year with their world titles, are looking to finalize a deal for a two-fight series in 2021.


Fury will defend his WBC title in a trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder, on the tentative date of December 19th.

And Joshua will make a mandatory defense against Kubrat Pulev, also targeted for the month of December.

When they spoke in Marbella, Fury seemed concerned that Joshua, should he beat Pulev, would have to make another mandatory defense, against the WBO's top man, Oleksandr Usyk.

As long as they get a deal in place for their two-fight series, Joshua told Fury not to worry about Usyk.

"I knew he was coming because I know a few people who know his mates. I was walking to the port. What's nice about the situation is that the port is a busy tourist attraction - so it's not like we saw each other on a private golf course," Joshua told Sky Sports.

"We're public people, normal people. I was walking down, he was driving. It was the most likely place to find someone like me or Tyson. He said: 'Don't lose to Kubrat Pulev!' I said: 'That's something silly to say'. He said: 'Have you got to fight Usyk?' I said: 'Look Tyson - when me and you can get a fight together, we don't have to worry about Usyk. See you next year'. I said hello to Mrs Fury, gave her a wave, and that was it."

You'd be crazy to risk Fury AJ a $100m+ fight and biggest fight in British boxing history for an unknown extremely solid boxer like Usyk who doesn't draw. Fury knows Usyk is a threat and AJ Hearn seemed to have…

[QUOTE=PanchoGomez;20691057]I agree with you to a certain extent. Fury does seem to fight to his opposition level and knowing that tells me AJ is in for a beat down. Fury biggest asset is his size 6ā€™9ā€ and the fact that…

[QUOTE=Roberto Vasquez;20689507]Fury struggled with a guy who wasn't even in the top-20 in Wallin. Wallin is the only half-decent 'boxer' Fury has fought on his comeback. He looked average against one of those early bums before Wilder too. Fury hasn't…
