WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is still not convinced that his fellow countryman and former unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will face the reigning IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight king Oleksandr Usyk.
“AJ” and Usyk are scheduled to face sometime this spring, but as of this point no venue or a date has been announced.
Meanwhile, Fury is waiting on Dillian Whyte to sign the contract in order to make their bout official. As of now, “The Gypsy King” will defend his WBC belt against “The Body Snatcher” on April 23 at Wembley Stadium in London.
“I personally don’t think it happens because Joshua doesn’t want it and two if it does happen, which it won’t, I think Usyk stops him this time,” Fury told IFL TV.
“You heard it here first, and I rarely get them [predictions] wrong to be fair, rarely. By the way, Eddie [Hearn] I see all the stuff you say about me not wanting to fight Usyk. Get your man to fight him and get that big L [loss] again, please. Prove me, wrong dosser, you work for me.”
According to Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, the rematch with Usyk is going to land on a date in the month of May.
