Tyson Fury has put Anthony Joshua on hold as he plans as many as ten more fights that will transform him from multi-millionaire to boxing’s first billionaire.

The highly anticipated battle of the British giants will have to wait until next year as Gypsy King and Ukrainian war hero Oleksandr Usyk clash twice in 2024 to decide which of them will reign as the first undisputed world champion of the heavyweights since Lennox Lewis.

Fury says: “Unless the contract between Usyk and I is not worth the paper it is written on – and it is a double bubble that is worth an awful lot to both of us – we will have a rematch after our first fight next month. “

As for Team Joshua’s insistence that AJ and Tyson will face each other soon, Fury says: ‘I’ve lost a few million over the years due to contract disputes and no court in the world can refute the legality of the rematch clause therein.

“And why would the winner or loser of our first fight want to withdraw from a second fight when there is so much money at stake?”

The answer is neither. Not with both men expecting to pocket around a hundred million dollars for each fight. Both in Riyadh, the new combat capital of the world. The first on May 18, the second at the end of October.

On keeping Joshua in suspense, Fury says: “He had his two attempts against Usyk and lost both. And he collapsed after the second defeat. Now it’s my time.

Tyson was speaking in his home town of Morecambe as he launched the four-week countdown to Usyk 1.

While addressing the press conference, His Excellency Türkie Al Al Sikh, who heads Saudi Arabia’s huge fight financing, came on a speaker phone to declare: “Tyson, you are the diamond of world boxing. You know I want you to be our jewel for ten more fights.

Fury, 35, said: “I know it. “And he then described this sequence thus:

‘Usyk twice this year. Joshua twice next year. “Then quicker fights against Daniel Dubois, Joe Joyce, a fourth fight with Deontay Wilder perhaps in the United States.

“Then Joseph Parker followed perhaps by European champion Agit Kabayal. Then a trilogy fight with Usyk.

On the timing, he said: “I could fight until I’m 40 and I’m happiest when I’m boxing. But I’d like to knock out as many in three or four fights a year. Then see what’s next. ‘

Fury is anything but deflated by his recent struggle to bounce back from a knockdown and lightly defeat the UFC. Legend Francis Ngannou.

The rivals agreed to a rematch clause in October and there is potential for a trilogy fight.

When his promoter Frank Warren and trainer Sugar Hill predicted he would knock out the also undefeated Usyk in May to add the WBA, IBF and WBO belts to his WBC title and become the first undisputed champion of the four-belt era , Fury joked: ‘I’m tipping Usyk to stop me in the first round!’

Then he added: “He is a great champion who deserves all our respect. So don’t say he sucks when I hit him twice. Which I could do every day of the week.

The sun shone through the clouds lowering over Morecambe Bay as Fury – who looked like he had been a host for years – began this countdown, to what he calls: ” My destiny “.

All is well again in the kingdom of the Gypsies.
