    If Fury ever fights Usyk and beats him would there be any point in fighting Joshua? Would Fury not bother because he would have beat the guy that beat AJ, or there still be enough money in that fight to lure Fury into a clash with AJ?

    Who's gonna turn down £100 million? Nobody. Of course Fury is interested.

    I've said from the start Fury will fight Joshua as it's mega money and a fight he's confident to win.
    The more pertinent question is will Fury fight Usyk?
    I'm not so sure.
    If Joshua gets a result over Usyk then it's birthday and Christmasl rolled into one for Fury. who can unify and have a bumper payday then retire on top.

    My friend, when you are hot, you are hot. And when you are not, you are not. End of story. This is boxing. I do not come down to where you work and sniff the badger out of your facility.

    Yes there will be a point. It's just like Lewis Vs Tyson, granted it should of happened years before it did but EVERYONE was still hyped for it.

    Joshua Vs Fury WILL happen no matter what.

    I'm a Fury fan for what he does in the ring, but I'm growing weary of his sh1t outside the ring

    He needs to fight Whyte, or another top challenger, then go straight for Usyk/Aj

    If fury wants to go down as a real great he needs to defend titles now, no more messing

    That’s still a big fight in England and it would be a scalp for Fury to say he unequivocally beat all the big names of his era.

    posters with your mindset are why some boxers protect their '0' at all costs.

    AJ is still one of the top 4 HWs in the world. He is relevant with or without those straps. Anybody in their right mind would be excited to see AJ fight Fury or Wilder.

    His ego won't let him not take it. Regardless of Titles, they will fight within the next two years.

    Of course he's going to fight Usyk (assuming Usyk gets past Joshua again, as the vast majority of us expect him to).

    You guys will never learn, so, g'head, keep doubting Tyson Fury. :lol:


    On topic, as for Joshua, it depends, he'd need to come back and avoid another L after losing a brace of bouts to Usyk. If, say, Joshua and Wilder were to get it on while Fury and Usyk were occupied with each other, that Alabama slammer of a right hand could spell the end of Joshua's time as a championship contender. On the other hand, if Joshua were to beat a threat like Wilder, it would generate some excitement and rejuvenate his image to a significant extent. If he, instead, avoids banana peels and just rebuilds with some fair to middlin' opposition, a meeting with Fury will remain marketable enough but not as sizzling to the public eye.
