Tyson Fury responds when asked who would win between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder

BOX-GBR-FURY-HEAVYWEIGHT

Tyson Fury has been in the media spotlight in the last few weeks, but it's been for all the right reasons as opposed to his nightmare last two years.

The Gypsy King will make his return to the ring in less than six weeks, where he will fight an as-of-now unnamed opponent at the Manchester Arena on June 9.

And amongst the media scrum in London today wanting to know about the preparation towards his first fight in over two and a half years, the two names that were bound to enter conversations eventually did - Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.

The two World champions of the heavyweight division have been going through protracted negotiations over a superfight which would potentially unify the heavyweight division, and the WBC champion Wilder has claimed he and his team have made a $50 Million offer to AJ and his promoter Eddie Hearn.

Fury has questioned the motives of Joshua and his camp, hinting that he believes they are avoiding the threat of Wilder in the ring rather than the money that is being offered.

"It's a lot of money if it's a genuine offer which I believe it is," stated Fury.

"How much do they [Joshua and Hearn] want? How greedy can one man be? $50 Million ain't good enough? Well good luck to him I hope he gets 250 [million dollars].

"I don't know what's going on. We're prizefighters, we'd box for free once upon a time so i'm sure it's not about the money."

Tyson Fury Press Conference

And when the former unified World heavyweight champion was asked who he thought would claim the spoils should the two come face-to-face in the ring, Fury stayed sitting firmly on the fence with his response, which was simply: "Whoever lands first."

Fury would clearly rather focus on his upcoming fight rather than a clash that may not even happen, but as his comeback looms, he would be foolish not to have a very watchful eye on the ongoings surrounding Wilder and Joshua, as when he's back to his best and full fitness, Fury will be gunning for both of them and for the titles he relinquished.
