Tyson Fury puts Anthony Joshua bout in doubt and open to Deontay Wilder trilogy instead as he 'just wants to fight'

TYSON FURY has sensationally claimed the Deontay Wilder trilogy could be back ON.

The Gypsy King handed the American his first ever defeat with a stunning seventh-round stoppage win in February last year.

Wilder came up with a whole host of excuses as to why he lost his WBC belt, including his ringwalk suit being 'too heavy' and trainer Mark Breland 'spiking his water' – strenuously denied by the coach.

Team Fury then claimed Wilder had missed the deadline to agree to fight No3 – which the Bronze Bomber disputes.

Talks then began to thrash out an undisputed heavyweight world title clash against fellow Brit and WBA, WBO and IBF champ Anthony Joshua.

But in a revealing interview with iFL TV, Fury appeared frustrated that it hasn't been announced yet – and opened the door to Wilder getting a shot at redemption.

And worryingly the 32-year-old claimed he is drinking up to 12 pints of lager A DAY and not eating.

And he added that he will NEVER fight in the UK again and the AJ fight is well off schedule.

He told iFL: “I have two fights this year and I don’t give a f*** if they are with, Joe Bloggs, Fred Flintstone, Mike Tyson, anybody. I just want to fight this year.

“Don’t write Wilder out of the equation next, I could be having the trilogy fight with him yet.

“There is a lot going on behind the scenes and Wilder could be next.

“I will never box here again. No. Finished.

“The superstar of world boxing will not box in small halls anymore. My new home is in Las Vegas.

“I intend to stay there and end my career over there.”

The Gypsy King has kept quiet while his own promoter Bob Arum, AJ’s matchmaker Eddie Hearn and Joshua himself have hinted at a huge announcement this month for a June clash in Saudi Arabia against Joshua.

Hearn has even sold Brit fans the dream of the second-leg of the two-fight rivalry happening at a packed Wembley stadium, after the lockdowns have lifted.

But Fury has now said he 'won't hold his breath' for the AJ scrap – and his desire 'to just fight' could open an unlikely door for Wilder.
