Tyson Fury’s father John has promised Anthony Joshua and Eddie Hearn that his son will make their lives a “misery” if the two British world heavyweight champions ever fight each other. Fury decimated Deontay Wilder in seven rounds last week to win the WBC world title.
Fury went into his clash with Wilder as the very slight underdog, with odds of him stopping the Bronze Bomber even longer.
But the Gypsy King promised to do what he set out to by punishing Wilder until his corner threw the towel in midway through the seventh round.
The emphatic win has reignited talk of a huge heavyweight clash between Fury and Joshua, who hold all of the belts in the division.
But Fury’s dad John believes the fight will only happen if a huge fee can be put up for both boxers.
“Unless Eddie Hearn can come up with £500million for the fight, it’s not going to happen, because that’s what it’s worth,” he told iFL TV.
“My son won’t sell himself cheap no more. He’s always in the away corner.

“He’s always supposed to lose, but he’s beaten reigning champions in their own backyard, you have to get some serious money out for him now.
“I’d be asking for £500m for the two fighters, split down the middle, let them get on with it. Biggest fight in the world.”
Fury Sr continued, however, and stated that Joshua wouldn’t be able to lay a glove on his son in the ring.
“Joshua couldn’t beat Andy Ruiz, he’s terrified of Tyson, he’d put him in Royal Infirmary, I’d be fearing for Joshua’s life,” he added.

“Listen, AJ, this is to you. This is not about you as a person, you’re a lovely young man, you’ve done great for your country, you’ve got the belts.
“But I’m talking in fighting terms, I don’t think you’re a true fighting man. Bob Arum said the same thing and I was thinking it long before him.
“You’re a nice guy, you look well, you’ve got a big future, but when it comes to the beating, fighting, lion heart, you haven’t got it.
“Don’t mess with Tyson Fury, go and fight other people, don’t box Tyson because it’ll be the last time you ever box because he’ll wreck ya.
“He’s a 19 stone, 6ft 9in wrecking machine, he’ll come forward, educated pressure, he’ll punish you, school you, make your life a misery, break your heart, and your life will never been the same again.
“And that’s the same to Eddie Hearn, I’ve never spoken to you in person but let me tell you, Eddie, watch what you’re doing.
“Tyson Fury will seriously hurt any heavyweight that stands in front of him. Tyson will ruin Eddie Hearn’s life. Hearn can’t sleep at night because the jealousy is bubbling out of him.
“And if anyone wanted Tyson to lose the other night, it was Hearn. But there’s not a man born or bred who can beat Tyson, and I’ll take all bets.”
