Very sensible off the back off two defeats. He needs a couple of tune up fans before he thinks about getting back in with anyone of Fury's calibre.Personally, I think AJ’s a bigger fraud. They knew he wasn’t good enough to face Fury so they avoided him at all costs.

No different from Fury fighting a few bin men after a long lay off before fighting Wilder. Which was also sensible.
Joshua's been fighting at the top level for a long time now and he's just been well beaten twice by Usyk. His head will be all over. He needs at least one, probably two confidence builders before he thinks about getting in with a Fury or a Joyce. It's always been like that. It's nothing new.
Remember Amir Khan knocking a nobody out at Newcastle in the first roundafter he'd been knocked Out by Prescott then beat Berrera next.
Hatton beat a nobody after being beaten by Mayweather before going on to beat malinaggi and then fighting Pacquio.
They are just the first two examples I thought of but boxing has always been like that. Joshua was daft for sating he would take the fight, but his team sensible talked him out of it. This is the right path for him if he's got any hoes of being a champion again.
If he had went to fight Fury now, I.would have looked at it as him cashing in on one final pay day to be honest
Fury v Joshua couldn't happen because of the rematch clauses in the Wilder Fury contract. Fury tried to get out of the third fight but lost a court case.This is before the defeats! Everyone wanted to see Fury V Joshua years ago but Hearn kept swerving it, presumably to earn more in the long run. He’ll have known how limited AJ is.
I think his chance at that fight has long since gone now, he’ll probably win his next one and start shouting his mouth off again and we’ll go through the same boring spiel.
I read this earlier, it's still backing up the points further up the thread. Usyk has agreed his deal (and did weeks ago), the date has been pushed back because Fury has still not signed his side.Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk will take place at the end of April, Frank Warren has revealed.

Totally priced himself out of the Usyk fight.Whats the craic?
