While Anthony Joshua suffered a shocking loss to Usyk in September 2021, Tyson Fury knocked out Deontay Wilder to retain his WBC heavyweight title in October. It left Usyk and Fury as the current heavyweight champions, temporarily ending hopes of a potential All-English undisputed title fight between ‘AJ’ and ‘The Gypsy King’.

Tyson Fury recently dropped a video on social media and expressed his opinion about Usyk’s entry in the title race. After criticizing AJ’s performance, Fury also subtly attacked ‘AJ’ once again through his shots at ‘The Cat‘.

Tyson Fury said, “You know I can’t believe that AJ has gone and given Ukraine all the heavyweight belts back. After all my hard work of believing him, you are a big useless dosser. You have let a little steroid man, come up from middleweight and sack about you and take all your belts. But he is gonna have to take a real British Lancaster Bomber like me.”

If Anthony Joshua would have beaten Oleksandr Usyk to remain the heavyweight champion, we could have expected an undisputed fight to happen in 2022. However, Fury is still up for that chance and may have to lock horns against Usyk if the Ukrainian elite beats Joshua again.

Per reports, Usyk vs Joshua 2 is already in the works and can happen at the earliest. Meanwhile, Tyson Fury still doesn’t have an official opponent yet.

Fury’s 2022 journey can see him start off by defending his Ring title in March or April. His UK promoter Frank Warren has already begun the search for a viable opponent as WBC mandatory Dillian Whyte has not agreed to terms with Fury’s team.

That said, Joshua’s former nemesis Andy Ruiz Jr. can be a viable opponent. Despite all this, ‘The Gypsy King’ seems interested in riling everyone in the heavyweight division, irrespective of whether he is facing them or not.
