WATCH: Former Cruiserweight Champion Backs off When Tyson Fury’s Father Offers £1 Million Bet on ‘Mr. Invincible’

We all can picture a conclusion to the heavyweight fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, but we still don’t know who would be the conquistador in a fight between the former and Anthony Joshua.

In the ever-changing heavyweight division, Fury, Wilder, and Joshua have held their top-spots for a long time. That said, Joshua is still untested against his other two adversaries. While Deontay Wilder is seemingly out of the tale for some time now, a fight against Tyson Fury makes sense for ‘AJ’.

Although he has an upcoming challenge in Kubrat Pulev on December 12, he can still bag a fight against Fury in early 2021. It will be a massive showdown between two Britons and fans have already taken different sides. While both the boxers have the chance to win, Fury’s father labels his son as ‘invincible’.

John Fury believes Joshua will not beat his son under any circumstances, and he is ready to put £1 million on the bet. The 56-year-old has almost got into a debate with David Haye to rake his son above Joshua.

Haye and Fury recently connected with BT Sport to offer their opinion on the matchup between ‘AJ’ and ‘The Gypsy King’. ‘Haymaker’ believes that Joshua has his chances against Fury, but John was not ready to accept.

He said, “He (Tyson Fury) is invincible. What are you talking about? Shall we start with £1 million?. I will give you 2-1”

However, David Haye didn’t accept the challenge. He replied, “No, let’s not definitely not go with £1 million. I am not betting against you. Never my friend.”

That’s when John Fury stood by his statement and said. “He (Tyson Fury)  is Mr. Invincible because he has proved it.” 

What’s next for Tyson Fury?

After calling for the Wilder trilogy for months, it seems like Fury has moved on from his American adversary. Earlier he teased to return against Agit Kabayel by the end of this year. However, the fight hasn’t materialized and Fury has postponed his comeback to 2021.

Now, the Wilder fight is still in talks and is a possible option for the WBC champion. Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua is also an alluring matchup for Fury in the coming days.

At the same time, if Joshua cannot retain his titles against Kubrat Pulev, it can shatter all the heavyweight plans again.
