"When I was out of the ring retired, he tried to fight Joshua twice [and] it was going on for ages - we all know that.

"They offered him $80m [£64m] for a two-fight deal, and I know a few people who saw proof of the funds and people who I definitely trust and he refused," Fury told IFL.

Fury further stated that if the fight had happened that Joshua will not be regarded among the top heavyweights in the world.

He said: "Wilder beats Joshua 100,000,000 per cent. Wilder beats Joshua, [Dillian] Whyte, Jarrell Miller.

"One touch from the Bronze Bomber and their faces are gone forever.

"Wilder would do to Whyte and Joshua what he did to Dominic Breazleale... he would put them unconscious in round one."
