- Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua are billed for an ‘undisputed’ showdown later this year
- Fury who last fought over a year ago says he has been drinking and holidaying
- The British boxer says he is not sure the fight vs Joshua will happen anytime soon
Boxing heavyweight WBC title holder Tyson Fury has stated that he is currently on holiday, as he is not sure whether the ‘undisputed’ bout with Anthony Joshua will happen soon.
Fury is billed to take on two-time unified world heavyweight champion holding the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO titles, Joshua, later this year in a blockbuster episode.
The self-acclaimed ‘Gypsy King’ last fought more than a year ago since dethroning Deontay Wilder and according to him, the £200million summer showdown with Anthony is 'nowhere near'.
He says he is on holiday and has been drinking up to 12 pints of beer - until he is given a date and enough money before he begins preparation.
Speaking to iFLTV via Daily Mail, the WBC champion said:
"I’ve stopped training now, I’m on holiday, I‘m doing anywhere between, eight, 10, 12 pints of lager a day at the minute. Not eating though so I’m getting my calories through alcohol.
"There’s nothing to do, is there? I’ve done training, training, training with no further process. It’s one of those things, at the minute I’m just chilling out, being a man of leisure in lockdown.
"Until I’ve got a fight, a date and hell of a lot of money in my pocket, there is no fight. There’s a lot of things going on that people don’t know about behind the scenes that can scupper a fight like that.
"So nothing is actually on until you are in the ring. So yeah, we are nowhere near that at the moment."
On the other hand, Anthony Joshua has insisted that he looking beyond the fight against his British rival and believes the Gypsy King will call it a day after the epic showdown.
AJ believes he still has ambitions in the sport and will keep fighting after he gets past Fury in the ‘Battle of Britain’.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Reigning WBC champion Tyson Fury has continued to reign insults on his countryman Anthony Joshua ahead of their proposed unification bout this year.
The 32-year-old took to social media to call out the two-time heavyweight champions, saying the Watford-born boxer should come out to battle him and learn who the real boss is.
Both boxers have been scheduled unofficially to face-off this year after Fury's trilogy agreement Deontay Wilder appears to have been thrown into the trash can.
