Fury warns Joshua fight will never happen as AJ’s camp ‘know they can’t win’

Fury controversially drew against Deontay Wilder on December 1 during a bout for the American's WBC heavyweight title with many believing the Brit should have won.

Before agreeing that fight, the Gypsy King had been in drawn-out and fruitless negotiations with Joshua's camp over a contest.

And it appears increasingly unlikely the pair will meet in the near future, although Fury claims he would beat Joshua if he was “given the chance”.

Fury told BT Sport: “I’ve already beat [Deontay] Wilder, so that’s one down and I’d do the same to [Anthony] Joshua if given the chance.

“But, I don’t think it’s going to happen and I’m sorry to disappoint the sports fans, Joshua, even with two hammers in each hand could never beat Tyson Fury and they know it.

“They know that, they’re not silly, it’s a business as well so they’re not going to take the fight, simple as.

“They may say they are going to take the fight – talk about it then fight somebody else like they keep doing.

“That fight ain’t going to happen."

After a long spell away from the ring, Fury was able to lose around eight stone and take on the dangerous puncher Wilder and fight to a controversial draw at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Many didn’t agree with the scoring having Fury as the actual winner.
