Tyson Fury has declared that he is ready to return to the ring.
The WBC heavyweight champion saw Anthony Joshua lose to Oleksandr Usyk for the second time on Saturday night and has vowed to take the titles away from the Ukrainian.
Usyk moved to 20-0 with 13 quick finishes as he beat ‘AJ’ by split decision in their money-spinning rematch at the Jeddah Superdome in Saudi Arabia.
Fury, who owns the only piece of real estate that doesn’t belong to Usyk after the 35-year-old picked up the Ring Magazine title in the sport’s premier division after his win over Joshua, took to social media in the aftermath, telling the former undisputed cruiserweight champion to pay up ahead of a fight for all the belts at heavyweight.
And ‘The Gypsy King’ has since released another video in which he has confirmed his desire to participate in a clash that could earn both fighters somewhere in the region of £200million.
“I’ve just seen Joshua lose for the second time to Usyk, [he was] out of his depth.
“England has been relieved of its belts yet again, as usual, but there is a remedy and a solution.”

Alex Krassyuk, the promoter of Usyk, revealed during fight week for the rematch with Joshua that a fight between his man and Fury had been agreed on prior to the decision for the latter to take on his mandatory challenger.
Fury took on number one-ranked contender Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium back in April, stopping him inside six rounds, exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office, to retain his green and gold title that could well be declared vacant next week.
“If you want those belts back then send in the gypsy barbarian of England. Come on, send me in.
“I will relieve the Ukrainian dosser of his belts like I did the last Ukrainian dosser.”
Fury became the unified world champion back in November 2015 with an underdog points win over long-time ruler Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf, Germany, and his attention has now seemingly turned to do the one thing he has so far failed to and that is clean up the division.
“If you want the best then you’re going to pay.
“It’s going to be very expensive, so get your f***ing chequebook out and I will relieve that Ukrainian dosser of those belts.”
