Tyson Fury will challenge Deontay Wilder for the WBC Heavyweight Championship on Saturday with the Gypsy King having just two return fights since his two and a half year hiatus.

The lineal heavyweight champion - as he likes to call himself - produced two competent yet bland performances against Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta to improve his record to 27 victories and no defeats.

His opponent, Wilder, also boasts an undefeated record with 40 wins and only one of those not resulting in a knockout.

However Fury's focus did not lay on Wilder in a recent interview with IFLTV, turning his attention to another big money fight that has been in the conversation for a couple of years.

Fury's potential fight with current IBF, WBA and WBO Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua soon became the main topic of conversation. The Gyspy King was not shy about revealing his demands to Matchroom Sports managing director Eddie Hearn.

Fury has been very outspoken on his demands for Joshua fight

“You know what I want mate, you know the deal.

“I told you the split and it begins with a big six and a zero to this man.”

Fury has never been one to mince his words or bend the truth and this approach remains here. The 30 year-old stated exactly the same demands to Eddie Hearn about the fight back in January via Twitter.

You have had your chance to make me vs AJ & declined many times!" wrote Fury.

"I've already told you it will be on my terms & the split will be 60/40 my end, see you summer/autumn 2019."

This demand has been turned down in the past largely due to the fact that Joshua's 'superstar' persona has seen a large increase since Fury beat Klitschko in 2015.

Fury is continuing to pursue a potential fight with AJ and believes that the stalls in negotiations have been largely down to fear.

“I was in the cold, I was nowhere, but because they hesitated, I’m back. I’ve got my foot around the door now and I’m in.

“They better get their running shoes on because I’m coming for you boys, I’m coming.”
