Joshua criticised Fury

Former world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs), who will hold his first fight after his defeat in a rematch with Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) on 1 April, called the cancellation of the Ukrainian's fight with Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) crazy. He accused the Gypsy King of disrespecting his opponents and called him responsible for cancelling the show.


Joshua said it in his comments to Boxing Scene. The British boxer recalled that even before his first fight with Usik he had tried to organize a fight against his compatriot, but he had refused the offer after the negotiations had started, disrupting the historic duel for the title of the world champion.


"I was supposed to fight him before I fought Usyk for the first time, and he refused to participate because of the trial with Deontay Wilder. Will there be a fight between me and him? I don't know. Look at the sh*t they're going through with Usyk right now. It's just crazy. It's good that people can really see the shit that people have to put up with to get a fight. Usyk and I had two successful fights. It's just crazy," Joshua said.


On the eve, Usyk's promoter Oleksandr Krasiuk named the main reason for cancelling the fight with Fury. At the same time he and Tyson's representative Frank Warren made a sensational statement about the fight.

Earlier, the World Boxing Association (WBA) gave an ultimatum to Usyk and Fury and named Briton Daniel Dubois (19-1, 18 KOs) a mandatory challenger for the Ukrainian's championship belt. Our compatriot decided to leave his training camp after the news about the disruption of the fight with Tyson.


Prior to that, the Ukrainian's manager, Egis Klimas, had spoken harshly about Fury because he was dragging out negotiations. Oleksandr himself also made a statement about the fight, noting that the ball is now on Tyson's side. In turn, the British coach Sugar Hill Stewart talked about his ward's plan for the fight.

As reported by OBOZREVATEL, promoter Usyk Oleksandr Krasyuk revealed details of negotiations with Tyson Fury and the reason for the cancellation of the historic superfight. And boxing fans smashed the Gypsy King online..
