Tyson Fury wants Anthony Joshua next
According to The U.S Sun, the tabloid reports Tyson Fury has revealed he got "bored of his retirement" and insists "nobody believes me anyway".
The Gypsy King announced he was hanging up his gloves after knocking out Dillian Whyte in his last fight at Wembley back in April.
Fury continued with the retirement's stance for several months, before announcing after Oleksandr Usyk's win over his compatriot Anthony Joshua that he would back to beat the Ukrainian.
However, Fury came back on Monday claiming he wants to give Anthony Joshua the opportunity to fight him, with the Morecambe-based boxer said to have offered Joshua a 40 per cent split of the earnings.
Should this boxing schedule become a thing, we all definitely know who the money's on. Fury's openness to take on both Usyk and Joshua comes just three weeks after he was quoted as saying "retirement rocks".
Admitting he grew bored of being out of the game very quickly, the Englishman jokes that none of his fans believed his retirement from the sport 100%.
And speaking to the Ring Magazine, the WBC champions said:
"I got bored with retirement.
"I had five months out of the ring and changed my mind. Nobody believed me anyway, did they?
"It was great. But nothing will ever compare with being heavyweight champion of the world.
"I love boxing. I absolutely adore it."
Fury eyes a fight with Antony Joshua in November, although that would seem very unlikely given Joshua's loss to Usyk last month.
The Watford-born loss last month to the Ukrainian is the third professional defeat and second in a row to Usyk, with the Brit new belles in the heavyweight division.
And the undefeated champion Tyson Fury feels if the two do meet that he would be the red hot favourite boxing odds to bet on, something he believes makes the bout a no-brainer for AJ.
He said: "He would be a massive underdog, so he's in a win-win situation.
"If everyone expects him to lose and he beats me, then he's back on top and bigger than ever.
"And if he's lost three, what difference does it make if he loses four?
"Four losses means nothing. Look at Derek Chisora, he’s had 12 losses and he’s still battling away."
