However, Fury suggested that AJ did everything to avoid a fight with him because he lacked the courage to face him.

Fury told iD Boxing:

“In my opinion, this is being brutally honest, I think lack of balls from AJ. Didn’t want the fight and didn’t push it and didn’t sign the contract."
“I don’t even know what commercial rights are... Like I say, lack of balls on AJ’s part or lack of - what’s the word I’m trying to look for here? Assertive, being assertive. But, lack of balls, I say lack of balls.”

In a clip, the Gypsy King enjoined AJ to accept a fight with him to stand a chance to win the coveted WBC title this December.

The WBC heavyweight holder disclosed that he is unimpressed with Joshua’s response to the fight negotiations, even though it earlier emerged that AJ had accepted the offer.

How Fury pushed for the fight to happen

Sports Brief earlier reported that Fury explained to Joshua in a video that he allowed his promoter Frank Warren to speak to Joshua's team although the deadline had passed.

The 34-year-old is not happy with Joshua, who he believes made many demands which have been fulfilled to his satisfaction. He says everything is in Joshua's hands.

Joshua's status as the best heavyweight boxer in the world tanked massively after the defeat to Usyk.
