The Queensberry Promotions owner Frank Warren has ruled out the fight between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua in 2023.
Warren has been associated with Fury promoting most of his fights since the Gypsy King's introduction at the world boxing stage. Fury was close to sealing the deal with the local rival, Anthony Joshua last year but the negotiations fell apart after the latter decided to take time out of the ring.
Warren argued that the Joshua fight is off the chart as of now for numerous reasons. First, his client and the WBC titlist, Tyson Fury has already notified him of what he wants next and that’s definitely not Joshua.
Secondly, Joshua is on look for a new training team and is yet to make a decision on it.
AJ further informed that he needed a couple of tune-up fights before he can vouch for the bigger fish in the division. And with that said, it’s apparent that Fury will need to probe into other options for his next outing.
“No, and I’ll tell you why we can’t see it,” said Warren when asked if Fury will fight Anthony Joshua in 2023. “Tyson has told me what fights he wants. That’s number one, and number two, they don’t want the fight.”
“More importantly, he [Joshua] doesn’t even have a trainer. He didn’t have a trainer then, so why do we waste our time?”
The Gypsy King has signalled for a fight with the IBF, WBA, WBO and Ring Magazine champ, Oleksander Usyk for a unification bout and it seems like, the British heavyweight will get his wish fulfilled soon.
