Anthony Joshua – on the disruption of Fury’s trilogy with Wilder: “What is happening is a bit like a circus”

WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua said he still wants to fight WBC title holder Tyson Fury, although he is not happy about the incomprehensible situation around the third fight of “Gypsy King” with Deontay Wilder.

“Due to the situation around his fight with Wilder, Fury is now in limbo. What is happening is a bit like a circus. When things get serious, I will make myself known. Until then, I will not participate in a circus performance and promote my name at Fury’s expense.

I’m ready to fight him, he performs in my weight. This is a good contender. For me, a fight with him is an opportunity to show what I am capable of.

I slipped a bit last year, but we cleared our reputation and got the belts back. Without a victory over Kubrat Pulev, who is a serious contender and challenger, there can be no talk of Fury, “Joshua told Sky Sports.
