John Furythe father of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs), admitted that his son is not going to fight mandatory challenger Joe Joyce (15-0, 14 KOs), but only wants to fight for absolute heavyweight championship.
“How can you set yourself up for this? Joyce has no belts. Of course, Joe deserves his chance, but imagine you’re getting ready to fight for the undisputed title, and then you have to start all over again to prepare for another guy.
Tyson wanted to be the undisputed champion, but now this is not happening. I think his head is completely occupied with this fight. So the fight against Joyce at this stage does not make sense. Nobody is interested in Joe Joyce. Nobody cares about anything other than an undeniable fight. That’s all Tyson wants,” John Fury said.
On April 15, Joyce will fight Zhang Zhilei. If he wins, he will become the main contender for the fight with Fury.
