Therefore, Fury declared on BT Sport after Daniel Dubois’ win: “Here we go. If Wilder don’t happen, let’s do Joshua in December.“Why not? It’s a boxing match, let’s get it on.“I’m ready to go now. I could fight him in that ring tonight, it don’t really matter, I’d still kick his ass.“If I was in their position, had a chance at glory to go to America and beat Wilder, but they didn’t take it.“So I had to come out of retirement, set about him a couple of times, take the number one spot, take all the glory, and now they’re all looking up to me. “He must be looking up thinking: ‘Do you know what? That could’ve been me.’“But it wasn’t, so it is what it is.“It’s their own fault.“It’s played a massive part in how it’s all panned out now.“They’ve gotta come though me, so I’m saying: ‘Grow a pair, come see the champ.’” As things stand, AJ remains contracted to defend against his IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev next, meaning the Fury bout is more likely for 2021.Tags: Anthony JoshuaDeontay WilderTrilogy boutTyson Furylast_img read more
