‘The Gypsy King’ took to social media on Friday to blast both of his heavyweight rivals as he looks to nail down his next fight on Saturday December 3. He has beef with both men – right now for different reasons:
- Usyk said this week that Fury is scared of fighting him in a massive unification showdown.
- Joshua, per Fury, has not yet signed the contract for their planned December 3 megafight
Apparently frustrated by the lack of confirmation that the Joshua fight is a go for later this year, Fury rounded on AJ. But first he blasted Usyk for those comments earlier this week.
Fury blasts heavyweight rivals
Unleashing a string of expletives, he said: “Usyk you little s***house, you little s***bag, talking sh**e – I’m afraid of you, I’ll put my fist through the side of you, you little sausage.
“And that other s***house, that big bodybuilder Joshua, that’s a proper s***house that is, that’s had the contract for I don’t know how long and ain’t signing it . You little sausage, You do not wanna fight, your manager’s a sausage. I’ve never seen anything like yous, both a pack of s***houses.

However, I will be fighting in December 3rd, if this sausage does not sign this contract, which I don’t think he is, because I don’t think he’s got the b****x cos he’s a s***bag.
Both of you a pair of little sausage s***houses. Joshua is a s***house, Usyk is a s***house, yous are all s***houses.
Fury vs Joshua latest
Fury vs Joshua of course has been the biggest British fight out there for a number of years, but as yet it is not reality. Last year the pair came close to meeting in August in Saudi Arabia, before Deontay Wilder scuppered that. He won an arbitration ruling which forced Fury into a trilogy fight instead.
Now the bout appears once again to be so near but so far. Joshua has accepted a 60-40 revenue split in favour of Fury, while there is a rematch clause only if Fury were to lose the bout. The venue, if Joshua eventually signs the contract, is expected to be in the UK.
Latest reports suggest the biggest sticking point now could be TV details. Fury’s bouts currently air on BT Sport in the UK while Joshua has a global deal with streaming platform DAZN. A joint PPV would appear to be the most sensible solution but this is boxing, often notorious for the way its politics seem to stop big fights happening.
Should Fury vs Joshua not go ahead in December, that date could reportedly feature Fury instead defending his WBC and lineal heavyweight titles vs Manuel Charr.
