Fury brands both Joshua and Usyk pu**ies as mega fight collapses again.

All of Tyson Fury's chances for a potential all-British megafight against Anthony Joshua, according to promoter Frank Warren, rely on the outcome of AJ's matchup with Deontay Wilder.

Joshua's management received a call from Queensberry Promotions last week with an offer to take on Fury at Wembley in September; however, Warren later disclosed that the offer had been turned down.

Fans have been clamoring for a Fury-Joshua matchup for years. It would surely be one of the greatest evenings in British boxing history. 

In 2021, the two signed a contract, but Wilder later won an arbitration lawsuit, forcing Fury to fight him a third time and nullifying the AJ contract in the process.

Joshua and Fury fight explained

Since the undisputed heavyweight matchup against Oleksandr Usyk ended in a draw, Fury has been looking for a fight.

Eddie Hearn has reacted to Tyson Fury's side's accusations that Anthony Joshua has turned down a chance to compete for the WBC heavyweight belt.

Hearn has stated that they are not willing to change their plans in the hopes that The Gypsy King's offer is sincere. 

Instead, they want to fight in August and then, if successful, face Wilder in December.

Warren thinks that the possibility for fans to witness the fight in the future rests once more with The Bronze Bomber.

Fury made the impromptu offer for a bout in September last week, expanding on the parameters that had previously been agreed upon for 2022. 

However, Joshua's camp finally decided against changing their original plans for fights against Deontay Wilder in December and August.

Joshua and Wilder appear to be scheduled to fight in Saudi Arabia in December; camps are awaiting a formal offer from Skills Challenge Entertainment.

Tyson Fury called Joshua and Usyk "pussies" in his Instagram response to the news.

The possibility of a Joshua-Fury bout in 2023 has now been put back until 2024.
