Forget about it, idiot, coward, s***house, bodybuilder: Tyson Fury tells AJ
Fury posted on his social media that the negotiations are over and the deal is no longer on the table.
“Well guys, it’s official, D-day has come and gone. It’s gone past 5 o’clock Monday, no contract has been signed. It’s officially over for Joshua, he is now out in the cold with the wolfpack,” said Fury.
“Forget about it, idiot, coward, s***house, bodybuilder. Always knew it, always knew he didn’t have the minerals to fight the Gypsy King. Regardless of what the f*** you say now, I don’t really care. Good luck with your career and your life, end of, peace out,” he added.

— Sky Sports Boxing (@SkySportsBoxing) September 26, 2022
Fury (32−0−1, 23 KOs) could now fight Mahmoud Charr on the same date, or in December. This would lead one to believe that Fury is not and has never been “retired“, which he says he has been since April.
Upon the cancellation of the Joshua fight, Fury reached out to the earlier callout from Charr.
“Looking forward to fighting a man who wants to fight and has fire and desire. Fought some of the best fighters and now stepping up again. Get in there Charr,” Fury wrote on his Instagram story.
Charr (33−4, 19 KOs) is a 37-year-old Lebanon-born, Germany-based Syrian fighter who has dominated at various stages of his career. A former WBA (Regular) heavyweight champ, He was roughed up and stopped in four rounds against Vitali Klitschko in 2012, stopped in seven by Alexander Povetkin in 2014 and stopped in five by Mairis Briedis in 2015. In his last outing, Charr won by knockout in the third round against Nikola Milacic (21−3).
“Salam Alaikum, Tyson Fury,” Charr had written on his social media earlier, “You know and I know that Anthony p***y boy will not sign the paper tomorrow. Take my challenge. I am ready for you.”
