The dream fight of British heavyweight kings trading blows by blows inside the boxing ring was shut down after Anthony Joshua failed to defend his unified belts against Oleksandr Usyk.
The unification bout between WBC heavyweight champ Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua is farther than reality.
“I don’t see it was happening now,” Fury’s promoter Frank Warren told the BBC.
“The unification fight was there, such a big fight. Heartbreaking.”
Even though Joshua can claim the belt back on their rematch, Warren said he is no longer a worthy opponent against the undefeated Gypsy King after showing vulnerability.
“Usyk is a good fighter, and he boxed extremely well. But Joshua is so vulnerable, and he’s been like that for ages,” he added. “They can talk all they want about rematches… Even if he was to beat Usyk, what is Tyson Fury going to do to Joshua? You would have your house on Tyson beating him.”
The two said fighters were about to clash not before Fury was ordered to defend the WBC strap against its former owner Deontay Wilder on a trilogy.
Both of them walked a different path and now can no longer meet.
