Tyson Fury has urged Anthony Joshua to accept a step-aside offer and allow him to fight Oleksandr Usyk in a unification bout.
The WBC champion is eager to fight IBF, WBO and WBA king Oleksandr Usyk in 2022 to crown the heavyweight division’s first undisputed champion since Lennox Lewis.
Joshua however has already triggered a rematch clause to set up a second meeting with the undefeated Ukrainian following his defeat in London in September.

Fury insists he is not getting involved with any of the financial negotiations but has urged his British rival to ‘get the f**k on with it’ and decide on his next move.
‘I want him to step aside so I can absolutely batter Oleksandr Usyk,’ Fury told IFL TV.

‘But one thing I will say is get the f*** on with it, either take the money and f*** off or fight the man either way one or the other.
‘He can talk to my advisor on what is going on with people and step-aside money because I don’t get involved at all.
‘I am not a businessman, I am a f*****g spartan and I am only interested in knocking mother******s out.
‘I have heard a certain little person called AJ talk about being a businessman recently but I will fight to the end, that is what spartans say, this is nothing to do with business or whoever I am fighting.’
