“This is a video to Eddie Hearn and all the supporters of ‘AJ’. We’re not bothered about Anthony JoshuaIf he wants to fight in June, get it ready for June Eddie. We’ll take him as a warm-up fight…And if you can’t put up, shut up! Do that.”

Tyson Fury last fought in February 2020 against the ex-WBC champ Deontay Wilder. He handed over the Alabama native, his first loss in the most sensational fashion. Right from the first second of the fight, Fury dictated the pace and only moved forward with his shots.

As a result, the ‘Bronze Bomber’ succumbed to a brutal T/KO loss in round 7.

Ever since that win, the ‘Gypsy King’ and his team have been waiting to get their hands on ‘AJ’ for a mammoth undisputed title fight. And with John Fury’s comments, it’s clear that Tyson Fury’s corner is ready for the undisputed title fight.
