Tyson Fury believes he will never lose his unbeaten record, despite the looming threat of fights against dangerous punchers such as Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua.
Fury defends his WBC belt against Wilder on October 9, which could finally set up an undisputed world title showdown against Joshua.
Joshua risks his world titles against Oleksandr Usyk on September 25, live on Sky Sports Box Office, but Fury has appeared to dismiss the threat posed by his heavyweight rivals.
Speaking in an interview with Gary Neville’s The Overlap, which contains language some may find offensive, Fury said, “I’ve never lost a fight. I don’t think I’ll ever lose a fight, no. I don’t think I will.
“I don’t think there’s nobody out there to beat me.”
Joshua has reiterated his desire for a blockbuster battle, but Fury insists his British rival’s shock loss to Andy Ruiz Jr is proof that he should not look too far ahead at future fights.
“How can he have me now, if I’ve got a rematch with Wilder,” said Fury.
“The big thing is – I’ll tell you what they always do – and he already fell victim to it, Joshua.
“They talk about fights that’s not happening. Everybody wants to talk to me about the Joshua fight. They don’t care about the fight that I’m having.
“All of a sudden, they want me to look over what I’m doing and then get chinned. I’m laid on my back flat by Wilder and he’s taking my position.”
