    GOOD MORNING BOXING FANS

    Heavyweight champ Tyson Fury has promised to fight Anthony Joshua later this year after his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder.

    The 32-year-old has been ordered to meet the American in the ring for a third time, leaving his potential bout with fellow Brit AJ in doubt.

    Fury told ESPN: “I’ve got to beat up Deontay Wilder a bit better than I did last time, because he didn’t get a good enough hiding last time.

    “This time I’m going to really double, double, treble smash him.

    “100 per cent [I’ll fight Joshua]. AJ’s got a big mouth and no substance.

    “He says I’m the one that does all the talking but if I didn’t talk boxing would be stone dead because I’m the only character alive left in it.

    “Let’s say that for a fact. [The Joshua fight] happens this year.

    “I’m gonna deal with this mug, Deontay Wilder, I’m knocking him out cold, and then I’m going to deal with the other guy straightaway.”

    Joshua wants to know where Fury’s infamous £7million charity donation is before he signs up for a £20m bare-knuckle bout.

    The warring boxers swapped Twitter insults on Wednesday night as things heated up between the pair, with Fury making the offer of a massive-money straightener.

    The message Joshua reposted said: “20M the f***ing homeless are still waiting on the 7M you promised them two years ago you sham.”

    Meanwhile Fury's trilogy with Wilder is set to take place on July 24 in Las Vegas.

    Fury has officially signed the contract for a third fight on Sunday.

    “He’s an idiot, he got absolutely dismantled and smashed to bits in our last fight and he wants that all over again.

    "He was telling people I cracked his skull, I’ve injured his shoulder, I’ve done his bicep. Yet he wants to get in there with me again.

    "It’s either one of two things — he’s absolutely crazy or he’s a sucker for punishment.

    “I got to beat up Deontay Wilder a bit better than last time because he didn’t get a good enough hiding last time.

    “This time, I’m going to real double, double, treble smash him”

    NO JOSHING

    Tyson Fury had been set to finally face Anthony Joshua in a huge unification showdown in August.

    The Saudi Arabia fight had been confirmed by the Gypsy King only last week, before a US arbitration panel ruled that he had to settle an earlier contract with Wilder.

    Fury claimed: "AJ’s got a big mouth and no substance.

    "He says I’m the one who does all the talking, but if I didn’t talk, boxing would be stone dead. Because I’m the only character alive left in it.

    "Let’s say that for a fact. It happens this year. I’m gonna deal with this mug, Deontay Wilder, I’m knocking him out cold, and then I’m going to deal with the other guy straight away."

    MORE FROM FURY

    "I’ve got his heart, his soul, his mojo – every bit of substance of Deontay Wilder, I’ve got it right here in my pocket. I’ve carried it around with me for the last 18 months.

    "He’s a glutton for punishment. He’s an idiot. He got absolutely dismantled and smashed to bits in our last fight, and he wants that all over again.

    "He’s telling people I’ve cracked his skull, I’ve injured his shoulder, I’ve done his biceps. But yet he wants to get in there with me again. He’s either one of two things: Absolutely crazy, or he’s a sucker for punishment."

    GOOD MORNING BOXING FANS

    Anthony Joshua’s scrap with Tyson Fury is now on the backburner after the British champ was ordered to face Oleksandr Usyk.

    WBA, IBF and WBO champion AJ was given a 48-hour deadline by the WBO on Wednesday to salvage his planned clash with the WBC title holder Fury.

    It hasn’t been met and therefore the WBO have stepped in demanding AJ needs to fulfil his mandatory defence against Usyk.

    And they have put extra pressure on the fighters to secure the deal by handing them just 10 days to negotiate.

    If a deal can’t be landed in that time, a purse bid ceremony will be called immediately per WBO rules.

    Meanwhile, Usyk’s promoter has told Sky Sports that Wembley Stadium could be the venue for an August bout between his man and Joshua.

    Alexander Krassyuk said: “WBO has to issue the official enforcement for the mandatory today.

    “According to my knowledge, AJ is ready to take the challenge.

    Fury uploaded a picture to Instagram and captioned it: “the big boss man @wwe I’m coming for that contract in a few years boss.”
