Former world champion Tyson Fury has once again verbally lashed out in the direction of his domestic rival – IBF, WBO, WBA, IBO world champion Anthony Joshua.
Joshua is back in the ring on June 1 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. He faces undefeated contender Jarrell Miller of Brooklyn.
“I think it is an entertaining fight between two dossers really. Yeah, it will be good for a giggle won’t it? Two low-level bums fighting it out on that stage, that level, with 12,000 people watching. It should be good. We all need a bit of bill-filling don’t we, not everyone can top the bills in LA,” Fury told IFL TV.
Fury fought to a controversial draw with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder back in December at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
He was in line for an immediate rematch with Fury – but that now appears to be in doubt with Fury signing a contract with Top Rank and ESPN.
Prior to securing Miller for the date, Joshua was trying to line up Dillian Whyte for a rematch. The two were unable to reach a financial agreement.
According to Fury, in the aftermath of beating Wilder in a rematch he would be willing to give Whyte a crack at the WBC gold.
“I blame Eddie Hearn for the fights not happening to be honest, it’s not Dillian. Dillian wants to fight anybody. He is the most improved fighter over the last two years I’ve got to say, congratulations,” Fury said.
“He deserves a world title shot for sure and when I beat Wilder in my next fight, I will give you the shot no problem. I’m not a s********, I am a man of my word. If I beat Wilder, when I beat Wilder in my next fight, you can have it next. Because ‘AJ’ ain’t going to fight you because he is a s********.”
