It appears Tyson Fury is more in the frame than ever before for a big showdown with fellow UK heavyweight Anthony Joshua than ever before.
His (Joshua’s) promoter Eddie Hearn told IFL TV yesterday that the two front runners at the moment for Joshua on April 13th are Dillian Whyte and then Tyson Fury.
It was perhaps the first time that he’s had Fury in line for the Joshua fight like this ever.
Fury himself however doesn’t hold much hope of the fight happening.
Speaking on BT Sport ‘No Filter Boxing’ Fury said:
“I don’t think it’s going to happen and I’m sorry to disappoint the sports fans but Joshua with two hammers in both hands couldn’t beat Tyson Fury, and they know it. They know that. They’re not silly. It’s a business as well. They’re not going to take the fight — simple as. They may say they are going to take the fight and talk about it and then fight someone else.”
Fury’s last fight came against Deontay Wilder last month in LA when he fought to a draw that saw Wilder retain his WBC heavyweight championship.
