Tyson Fury has rubbished talk that him and Anthony Joshua will fight in Saudi Arabia as he insisted that any potential bout will take place in America.
AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn had recently stated that the Middle East is a serious option due to the amount of money they can offer as opposed to the UK. But the Gypsy King has declared that if the two were to ever face each other inside the ring, then Las Vegas is the only place that he would want to get it on.
The 31-year-old’s last two fights have come in Sin City, and his upcoming dust-up for the WBC heavyweight title against Deontay Wilder is taking place in Las Vegas. America have taken to Fury who has dazzled fans with his skills, while Joshua was knocked out by Andy Ruiz Jr in his only fight in the States.
Speaking on the Ak and Barak Show on Sirius XM, he said: “Listen, that fight happens in Las Vegas and Las Vegas alone. It’d be MGM Grand Garden Arena live from Las Vegas, USA. I’m the one who’s come to America and conquered America. Joshua came over and got knocked out by a little fat man (Ruiz Jr). And then in the rematch he ran away from a little fat man like a sheepdog all night. He ran away. I thought it was disgraceful. He ran away like a sheepdog all night, like a s*house.”
And Fury has also labelled Joshua and his IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev as “p******”, with the duo set to fight each other at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the summer. He added: “To be honest with you, Pulev and Joshua are a pair of p******, both of them. Not sure if I can say p**** on the radio, but what the f*. It’s not a fight that’s really interesting to me, Pulev and Joshua. I only wanna see the big fights and unfortunately for Pulev he’s not part of the scene unless he gate crashes the party. The fights I wanna see is me vs Wilder, me vs Joshua and Joshua vs Wilder. That’s it, there’s no other players, the rest of the players are just people trying to gate crash the heavyweight division.”
