Speaking to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain, Fury spoke about the fight first. He said, “I watched the fight, I was very impressed with what he did.”

Fury added, “When they did the interview, the public heard that he wanted to fight me and he avoided the question, which was a bit disappointing as it’s been building up over the years.

“He avoided the question like he didn’t want the fight, so I had to get straight on social media and make everyone know I’m willing to take the fight.” This also explains his video on Twitter.

Fury then gave an update on the potential undisputed fight happening. He said, “Grow a pair and sign the contract, big boy! I’m aiming to take him out inside four rounds.

“I said it about Deontay Wilder, not many people listened… Anthony’s standing in my way of total supremacy in my era. He’s the only one left I haven’t beaten. Immortality awaits – I’m one win away from it.”

For fans of the sport, this is the best possible news that they could hope for. It was clear that both camps wanted the fight to happen in 2021; however, the biggest question was whether Fury would welcome such a big fight after over 15 months out of the ring.

Clearly, he is confident of beating his compatriot, and his time out of the ring doesn’t seem to bother him. So these comments do mean that we are one step closer to seeing two of the best heavyweights enter the ring.
