Tyson Fury insists Anthony Joshua trilogy fight will NEVER happen as he will not lose against Brit rival

TYSON FURY insists he would never need a trilogy fight with Anthony Joshua as he would not lose one.

The two British boxing stars looked set to unify the heavyweight division this summer as contracts were reportedly agreed with Saudi Arabia the chosen destination.

Tyson Fury insists he would never need a trilogy fight with Anthony Joshua

That mouthwatering clash was scuppered when Deontay Wilder won his arbitration case for a trilogy fight against Fury after his February 2020 battering.

That is now taking place on July 24, with the Battle of Britain postponed.

Joshua will now take on Oleksandr Usyk on September 25.

But should both champs come through their title defences, it is hoped they will finally get it on.

And when asked by Pitch Boxing whether they too could embark on a trilogy of fights, Fury quickly shot that idea down.

He said: “I don’t know, I don’t know.

“The thing is with the trilogy, the trilogy only happens if there has been a controversial thing in the first fight.

“Or if it was really close the first time something went wrong, someone never got the decision.

“Or the second time one guy wins or they win one each. That’s how trilogies happen.

“Whether that will happen… I don’t ever see myself losing a fight so I don’t see how it can be one-all and then we go again.”

Arum hopes it will take place on these shores.

Meanwhile, Speaking to Sky Sports, Fury’s US promoter Bob Arum hinted this week that he hopes the UK will host the potential unification showdown.

He said: “Next time around, if it’s Joshua and Tyson Fury, first of all, where should the fight be held?

“There’s a big argument that by that time, the pandemic is behind us, we wait until the spring and we do it in Wembley, or one of the big arenas.

“If we wanted to do it in winter, we can do it in Cardiff [Principality Stadium], because 70,000 seats, indoor arena, or it can go to Saudi Arabia.”
