Tyson Fury tells Anthony Joshua to ‘grow a pair’ and agree December unification showdown if Deontay Wilder fight is KO’d

TYSON FURY has told Anthony Joshua to “grow a pair” and set up an all-British world heavyweight unification fight in December if his Deontay Wilder rematch is KO’d.

Fury delivered the brutal blow after watching Daniel Dubois’ second-round takedown of Dutchman Ricardo Snijders.

Boxing fans, both at home and abroad, are eager for Fury and AJ to step in the ring together.

But both men have other commitments first, with Fury in line for a third fight against Deontay Wilder on December 19 and Joshua taking on mandatory IBF challenger Kubrat Pulev.

However, AJ is yet to set a date for his bout after it was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

But with Fury and AJ both based in Britain, there would be few problems for the pair if they set up a clash.

And The Gypsy King has now called on his rival to “grow a pair” and thrash out an arrangement should their current commitments fall through.

Fury said on BT Sport: “If Wilder doesn’t happen, let’s do Joshua in December. Let’s get it on. I’m ready to go now, I’d have fought him in that ring tonight. 

“I’d still kick his a***, any time of the day. Hopefully they grow a pair and want to fight the Gypsy King. 

“If I was in their position, I’d have had my chance at glory to go to America and fight Wilder. 

“But they didn’t take it and I had to come out of retirement set about him a couple of times – take the No1 spot, take all the glory. 

“He must be sitting down thinking ‘that could have been me’. But it wasn’t. It’s their own fault.

“Grow a pair, come see the champ, and I’ll sort you all out. I’m just waiting here patiently.

“No fights on the horizon, training like a lunatic, running up mountains, I’ve become a human racehorse. 

“I’m looking forward to all challenges, whatever they are bring them to the Gypsy King and I’ll deal with them, in exciting fashion.”
