JOHN FURY says son Tyson would have accepted the £15million ‘step-aside’ deal offered to Anthony Joshua ‘within seconds’.
Joshua is understood to have turned down around the huge offer to pass up his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk and let Fury take on the Ukrainian instead.
Fury slammed his Brit rival for blocking his undisputed showdown, saying: “It’s called greed.”
Now his dad has has his say, taking a dig at Joshua as well as promoter Eddie Hearn.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Fury Sr. said: “If that was offered to us I’d have said yes straight away.
“Bang! Within seconds, done.
“Free money? £15million, give it here! We’d have taken it straight away, it’s business.”
He then took shots at Hearn, adding: “Jealousy has taken over his brains.

“Eddie Hearn has just blown AJ £100million! What kind of a businessman is he?
“How can you take notice of Eddie Hearn? We can run rings round the likes of Eddie Hearn.
“Eddie Hearn… he thinks he’s clever but he’s not dealt with Fury before.
“He’s dealt with them now and wishes he’d never heard of the Fury name.
“He wishes the Fury name never existed.”
The ‘Gypsy King’ continued to mock Hearn and Joshua by posting a video of himself laughing alongside his brother Tommy on Instagram and Twitter with the caption “There is some silly businessmen out there”.
Fury is currently preparing to take on Dillian Whyte.
Meanwhile, Joshua aims to reclaim his WBO, IBO and IBF titles back.
The two heavyweight fights will reportedly take place in April and May.
