TYSON FURY reckons fight with Anthony Joshua didn’t materialize because he wanted to ‘beat his little ass’
WBC heavyweight champion Fury presented AJ with a shock world title lifeline in September and challenged the Watford warrior to a Battle of Britain in December.
Joshua publicly accepted the shock offer following his loss to Oleksandr Usyk, although hasty negotiations over the long-awaited domestic disappointment bore no fruit.
But Fury, the Watford warrior, crouched low in front of him and told BoxingScene: ‘He’s a coward.
“If Joshua had fought me, he would have spent about $40 million on December 3rd.
“And instead he shits on himself and runs away like a little b***h.
“But I don’t blame him for wanting to spank his little ass all over TV.
“And he wouldn’t have been able to walk around with his muscles and all that shit.”
Fury believes Joshua is content to suffer a split decision loss to Usyk in their showdown in Saudi Arabia.
The Gypsy King said, “He’s happy now that he can say, ‘I lost a split decision against a middleweight.’ He’s happy with that.

“But if he gets cut off the canvas and you have to scratch him open with an egg fin, he can’t walk around with it [confidence] then because he is absolutely destroyed.”
Fury, 34, will be back in action tonight in a Tottenham trilogy clash with Derek Chisora - whom he owns with two wins.
But he refuses to underestimate Del Boy, saying, “He [Chisora] very well done against Usyk.
“And may I say who the hell is Usyk?
“People didn’t know his name until he defeated the bodybuilder the other day.
“He was a little, little heavyweight who didn’t want to do anything about AJ when Chisora fought him.
“But then he stepped up and beat the big bodybuilder and now all of a sudden he’s the killer. I do not think so.
“Listen, I rate Derek Chisora as much as Usyk and I will train for Derek as hard as I would any man in the world.
“If I didn’t I would have to be a complete idiot – I will not underestimate Derek Chisora.
“God forbid I got hit, it won’t be because I had an injury or didn’t train hard enough, it will be because I lost to a better man on the night.

“We’re going to have a fight and that’s it. It’s going to be a good fight too because he doesn’t flinch and I’m not running anywhere, so someone gets that chin.”
Joshua, meanwhile, plans to return to the ring “late March” – with a fight against former foe Dillian Whyte a possibility.
