'Maybe you can lend him your nuts' – Tyson Fury cheekily responds to Oleksandr Usyk's offer to train Anthony Joshua | The Sun

TYSON FURY gave a cheeky response to Oleksandr Usyk's offer of training with Anthony Joshua.

Usyk twice beat AJ on points, most recently in Saudi Arabia in August, and offered to help Joshua bounce back.


It came after the Ukrainian ruled himself out of an undisputed title decider with Fury until next year.

The Gypsy King then turned his attention to Joshua and sent out a 60/40 contract in his favour to fight on December 3 in Cardiff.

But Fury claimed to have walked away from talks after accusing AJ of failing to sign before his Monday, September 26 deadline.

So he made a sly remark about his British rival when reacting to Usyk's offer of training Joshua.

Fury posted: "Maybe you can lend him your nuts middleweight?!

"Usyk, don't be a p****y like your big pal!"

Joshua, 32, produced a bizarre post-fight rant after losing his rematch with Usyk, 35.

The pound-for-pound star failed in his approach to calm AJ down – but remains open to sharing the ring again in sparring.

He said: "I wanted to talk to him, I said, 'Ease up, man, let's just calm down. When I have time I could come to see you in the UK, come to your gym and we could spar together and stuff.'"

Fury, 34, claimed he was moving on to fight Manuel Charr, 37, after Joshua failed to return their contract in his allocated time.

That is despite DAZN and BT Sport this week meeting to attempt a joint pay-per-view deal.

And promoters Eddie Hearn and Frank Warren both voiced their hope in the fight being resurrected.

Hearn said: "There has been no talk of a deadline between the parties, but we are moving at pace to try and conclude the deal."

Warren told talkSPORT on Monday: "We’re working very hard to get it over the line.

"If everyone agreed everything, it would be a huge undertaking, but we could do it that way.
