It doesn’t seem like Tyson Fury is interested in fighting Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony Joshua anytime soon.
On Thursday, Fury faced off with former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou for the first time ahead of their fight in October.

Apparently, Fury is done with boxers and is now solely interested in “big fights” with fighters like Francis Ngannou and Jon Jones.
Via IFL TV
“I’m onto the big fights, Francis Ngannou, Jon Jones. I want challenges, I don’t want easy bait. They’re all bums, the boxers. I’ve already proved myself as the best boxer that’s ever lived. Now I’m gonna prove myself as the best fighting man that’s ever lived.”
Fury also confirmed to ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith that Jon Jones is his next target after Ngannou.
“I’m looking to fight big, big stars. Jon Jones is next, I’m going to kick his a–”
