 Fury named the date of the rematch with Usyk and shared his thoughts about a possible fight against Joshua

"Gypsy King" wouldn't mind fighting AJ, but after two fights with the Ukrainian.

WBC heavyweight title holder Tyson Fury spoke about a possible fight with the former world champion WBO, WBA, IBO and IBF Anthony Joshua.

According to the “Gypsy King”, his fight with AJ will become possible only after he meets the current world champion WBO, WBA, IBO and IBF Alexander Usik.

The first fight between Usik and Fury will take place on May 18 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. And in October, the Ukrainian and the Briton are going to have a rematch.

“For some reason, over the past five years, something has always prevented us from fighting Joshua. And this time the title of absolute world champion stands between us heavyweight. So this fight is on the back burner for now.

Unfortunately, I have more important things to do with Usik on May 18th, and we will have a rematch in October. So, after that, if he is still will be available, we can meet,” ESPN quotes Fury as saying.

Recall that on the night of March 9, Joshua in the main fight of the boxing evening in Riyadh effectively destroyed the ex-champion UFC Francis Ngannou. The Briton knocked out his opponent in the second round.
