I’d fight Usyk and Joshua on the same night, I don’t value them, they’re bums compared to me’

Tyson Fury has taken a sly dig at Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk by claiming he could fight them both on the “same night.”

Fury has been heavily linked with fights against the pair over the recent years however failed to come to an agreement with either.

Most recently, the ‘Gypsy King’ was looking to fight Usyk but due to a rematch clause that Joshua had activated, after he lost to the Ukrainian last year,  was unable to go head to head in a unification fight.

Talks also broke down after the 2012 Olympic champion refused a big-money offer to step aside and allow Fury to face off against Usyk, meaning the heavyweight fighter will now face Dillian Whyte.

Both sides of the camp have different stories with Joshua’s camp claiming that the deal fell through as Fury wanted a warm-up fight before facing Usyk, whilst the ‘Gypsy King’ has an opposite view.

“Just for everybody to know, the only reason this fight fell of bed was because AJ wanted more money last minute and he thought I was going to give him an extra five million,” he said.

Despite his original hopes falling through, Fury was still in the mood to take aim at the pair – insisting that he would be able to fight both Joshua and Usyk on the same night.

“I’d fight Usyk and Joshua on the same night,” he told iFL TV.

“I don’t value them, they’re bums compared to me, they’re bums compared to me.

“Do you think I’m bothered about a middleweight or some bodybuilder? I’ll annihilate them.”
