Fury was dismayed to see Anthony Joshua refuse a fight with the American, but suggested he could make the step up and fight
Tyson Fury has teased the possibility of a fight against Deontay Wilder in the near future.
The passionate heavyweight, who is set for the second fight of his comeback next month, lashed out at ‘golden boy’ Anthony Joshua via Twitter.
WBC Champion Wilder and Brit superstar Joshua seemed set for a late summer showdown at Wembley.
But the fight never materialised and ‘AJ’ is now set to fight his WBA mandatory Alexander Povetkin on September 22 – a fight you can hear live on talkSPORT.
And Fury, who famously dethroned Wladimir Klitschko back in 2015 has teased fans by suggesting he could repeat the feat in the USA.
He said: “I think it’s such a sad time for heavyweight boxing because you’ve got the so-called super-champion and golden boy Anthony Joshua and he is avoiding Deontay Wilder and will not fight him at any costs.

Anthony Joshua reveals how long he has left in boxing
“If you’re not going to fight someone for £40 million, you’re not going to fight them for anything.
“It’s a disgrace and he’s a disgrace to boxing.
“I think it needs somebody good enough to step up and take on the challengers and not be afraid, not be afraid to take risks and go to people’s back yards and do it.
“Can you imagine if I went to America and beat Deontay Wilder in America after beating [Wladimir] Klitschko in Germany?
“That would be sensational…it might happen, who knows?
“Wait for the news.”
