3 Likely Reasons Anthony Joshua And Tyson Fury's Fight May No Longer Hold This Year

With the way things are going, there is every possibility that Anthony Joshua may never get to fight Tyson Fury in what could be the most promising and entertaining fight of this century. Although there is still a chance that the battle between them will still take place if the two strongest boxers in the world defeat their current opponents.

But it seems very unlikely, in this article I'm going to be sharing with you two reasons why Anthony Joshua may not be fighting Tyson Fury in the nearest future at all.

1. Anthony Joshua may lose his title to Oleksandr Usyk in their upcoming fight.

The fight between the Two-time unified heavyweight boxing champion of the world and the former cruiser heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk has been abuzz on social media for the past couple of months since it has been set up and although Anthony Joshua has been training and preparing tirelessly for the match.

There is a chance that he may probably lose to the Urkranian boxer because this man has been regarded as a vet gifted and deadly fighter so much that he is being compared to boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

2. Tyson Fury may eventually lose to American Boxer Deontay Wilder.

This is another interesting bout that is set to take place, since his loss at the hands of Fury, Wilder has worked tirelessly with his team to ensure that he has a rematch with the man who defeated him. And from his previous fights, it is no hidden fact that Deontay Wilder is one of the hardest punchers in today's boxing world even during his last match with Tyson Fury.

The American boxer has proven that he had what it took to knock him down a number of times, the only reason that Tyson won the fight was because he had a lot of skills in his arsenal. But there is every possibility that Wilder has learned his lesson and may show Fury what defeat is which may hinder his fight with AJ in the future as he may take his place as his rival after winning the WBC belt.

3. It is also possible that AJ may refuse to fight him again due to the last unsuccessful match up.

As you all know, AJ was supposed to fight Tyson Fury this year in a match boxing fans were anticipating the most. But due to some unspecified reasons by Tyson Fury, the match was cancelled and AJ was challenged by his current opponent.

Even if AJ was to win this fight, and Fury came back to challenge him. AJ may refuse and may not see Tyson Fury as a worthy fighter because of what he did last time. And there is also the probability that he may lose to Wilder which means a match will not be possible in the future.
