Ricky Hatton fears Tyson Fury would say ‘f**k it’ to a mega fight with Anthony Joshua and the Battle of Britain is DOOMED after the latest heavyweight bout delay
- Tyson Fury’s Trilogy Fight With Deontay Wilder Has Been Delayed Until October
- The gypsy king caught Covid and his Anthony Joshua clash is even further away
- Ricky Hatton fears the pair could never fight and Fury could lose interest
Tyson Fury or Anthony Joshua uniting the heavyweight division seems increasingly distant, and Ricky Hatton fears the two Britons will never face it in the ring.
The Gypsy King was forced into an unpopular third showdown with Deontay Wilder this year, pushing advanced plans to negate the fight that would define his generation.
Another setback came just weeks before the July 24 date with Wilder, when Fury tested positive for Covid-19 and caused the fight to be pushed all the way back to October 9.

Joshua has also been forced into a mandatory defense of his belts against Oleksandr Usyk in September, and defeats to both would take a lot of historic weight away from the match any fighting fan wants.
“We lost one of the biggest fights of the summer. Fury vs Anthony Joshua now seems further away than ever,” Hatton said Subway.
‘What happens now? It just pushes the fight back further. As a fight fan you fear the worst, the biggest fight in British boxing history, is it really going to happen? It seems we are doomed.
Tyson’s past problems with his depression, mental health and battles with alcohol and drugs have been well documented in the past.

Despite contracting Covid-19, Fury has been out enjoying Las Vegas this week
“I remember Tyson saying to me ages ago, ‘I want a few warm-up fights and then I want to beat Wilder. And right after that I want to fight AJ. And then I’m done.’
‘Anthony Joshua is younger, he has fewer miles on the clock, he is an athlete 24-7. I know Tyson is an athlete 24-7 now, but the damage he did to his body years ago.
Tyson wants in, out and prove he is the best fighter in the world. And the more it goes on, the more I worry about Tyson just going, “F**k it.”‘
Fury faced a barrage of criticism, calling Dillan Whyte a ‘w****r and an embarrassment to British boxing’ after he posted photos of him enjoying the Las Vegas lifestyle just days after he got his Covid – announced positively.
