Tyson Fury opened up about his next steps as he awaits his next opponent by commenting on his biggest rivals.
Fury’s last bout was a victory over Dereck Chisora in December last year after talks for an undisputed fight with Oleksandr Usyk broke down.
However, the ‘Gypsy King’ has failed to find an opponent since then, as Andy Ruiz Jr. reportedly demanded too much, while Zhilei Zhang faces Joe Joyce in a rematch.
As such, Fury teased that a potential opponent would not be that easy to find.
“I hear all these names being chucked around but I don’t pay any heed to them until I’m actually in the ring with them. As we’ve seen over the last 14 years, you can be linked to fight somebody and it never happens.
I’m not very optimistic about any of the names until I’m actually in with them. Hopefully be announcing a fight in the next few weeks,” Fury said
As Fury waits for a fight, reports indicate that Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua could be fighting each other in December.
When Fury was asked about the pair, he took a more positive view of Joshua, slamming Wilder’s recent behavior towards him.
Fury and the ‘Bronze Bomber’ had crossed paths when both were in attendance for Jake Paul’s fight with Tommy Fury. Despite the warm embrace, Wilder did not hold back on his thoughts.
“I can’t stand that motherf***er. They know what’s up, he’s a cheater, but [Saudi Arabia] is a peaceful ground. I don’t like you, but I can come and let you know that I see you,” Wilder told ESNEWS
Those comments did not sit well with Fury, who stated that he was hoping for a Joshua win over Wilder.
“I think we all know what happens. I’d love for AJ to knock him out because Wilder’s a little b**** but I just see him getting chinned.
“When I met him man-to-man, his a***hole fell out. He came over and cuddled me like the little bitch that he is. It was like, ‘Alright, it must be done, he’s come over and given me the cuddle, forget about it.
“Then a week later he goes, ‘Tyson’s still a piece of s***, this, that and the other.’ But it was what it was. Deontay Wilder is Deontay Wilder and that’s it,” Fury
