The Gypsy King Tyson Fury has called out long-time rivals Anthony Joshua and Eddie Hearn, claiming that the pair only care about money and aren’t in the fight game for the right reasons.
Fury spoke to the media at a recent press conference to promote his upcoming bout with Deontay Wilder, and in an interview with Sky Sports, fired several shots at British rival Anthony Joshua and Eddie Hearn.
"I've got to get past Wilder then those guys will get their five minutes of fame. I'll give them the biggest beatdown they have had in their lives.
"As I've told Eddie Hearn, the difference between me and them is they are businessmen and I'm a Spartan.
"This talk of undisputed means nothing to me. I'm not Eddie Hearn or Anthony Joshua. I fight because this is what I do – it's what I was born to do.
Fury and Joshua were expected to finally face off in one of the most mouth-watering heavyweight clashes in recent boxing history, following their respective victories over Deontay Wilder and Kubrat Pulev.

However, Fury has since been ordered to defend his WBC belt against Wilder, after the Bronze Bomber’s team won an arbitration hearing. The two will face off next month in the third bout between the pair.
Meanwhile, Joshua’s team have been in talks with former cruiserweight king Oleksandr Usyk, who is the current mandatory challenger for AJ’s WBO belt. Hearn recently revealed that he expects to finalise contracts with the Ukrainian very soon.
Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder III is set to take place on July 24th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, with the WBC and Ring Magazine heavyweight titles on the line.
It is set to be a night full of heavyweight action, with a handful of other bouts already booked on the undercard. Most notably, Robert Helenius will face Adam Kownacki in their highly anticipated rematch.
Helenius, a former opponent of Derek Chisora and Dillian Whyte, defeated Kownacki via fourth-round knockout in March last year, despite entering the ring as a heavy underdog. The winner of the bout will likely become the mandatory challenger for Anthony Joshua’s WBA super championship belt.
