He recently revealed that Fury and his team clearly did not do their part to ensure that the undisputed clash with Anthony Joshua happened this summer.
According to him, Fury had the chance to end his trilogy contract agreement with Deontay Wilder in December, but he decided against it, and it has cost the world an important fight we were all looking forward to.
Eddie added that he also doesn’t understand why Tyson hasn’t shown any anger or sadness at the painful decision, despite it costing some people a lot of money.
His words, “What sort of ruling is that from an arbitrator? To order a rematch with a specific date?”
“And then when the arbitration ruling comes through, you clearly see that Top Rank had the ability to terminate the contract with Deontay Wilder back in December.”
“But the fact is, they didn’t terminate, they kept planning the fight, they kept talking to Top Rank, to PBC.”
“The whole thing absolutely stinks. AJ feels that Fury never wanted to fight, that Fury was just using his name for clout. I think there’s a very valid argument for that.”
“I’d like to believe that Tyson Fury wants this fight, and wanted this fight, and basically was just f***** by others.”
“There’s nothing I can do about it because as I said leading up to this fight, the only thing I can’t control is their team.”
“But where are your b******* Tyson Fury? If you really wanted this AJ fight, you have not said anything negative about this situation.”
“You have not said how disappointed you are, you have not looked at your promoters – who clearly could have terminated this contract a long time ago – and gone, ‘What have you done?’.”
“‘You’ve not only cost me fifty or sixty million dollars, you’ve cost me the biggest fight of all time, the undisputed fight because you’ve dropped the ball. And if you haven’t dropped the ball, why are you not fighting this and trying to come up with a Plan B’.”
“I’ve not seen one thing from Tyson Fury, where he’s saying: ‘I’m devastated, I can’t believe this, we had a deal in place, I was happy, guys I’m sorry’.”
“I don’t believe this and I don’t believe him.”

Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua, OBE (born 15 October 1989) is a British professional boxer who is a two-time unified heavyweight champion, having held the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO titles since December 2019 and previously between 2016 and June 2019. At regional level, he held the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles from 2014 to 2016.
Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua was born on 15 October 1989 in Watford, Hertfordshire, the son of Yeta and Robert Joshua. His mother is Nigerian, while his father is of Nigerian and Irish ancestry. Joshua’s Nigerian background can be specifically traced back to the Yoruba people, amongst whom he is of aristocratic rank.
His cousin, Ben Ileyemi, is also a professional boxer. The pair made their professional debuts together in 2013. Joshua spent some of his early years in Nigeria as a boarding school student at Mayflower School in Ikenne.
Following his parents’ divorce when he was 12, he returned to the UK halfway through Year Seven to join Kings Langley Secondary School. Growing up on the Meriden Estate in Garston, Hertfordshire, he was called “Femi” by his friends and former teachers, due to his middle name, Oluwafemi. He excelled at football and athletics and broke his school’s Year Nine 100 m record with a time of 11.6 seconds.
