Tyson fury shows off his new December opponent After Anthony Joshua declined his contract


Tyson Fury the gypsy king has branded his new December fight opponent Mahmoud Charr "a man who wants to fight" after cancelling his bout with Anthony Joshua.

The world heavyweight champion placed a seemingly random deadline of yesterday evening for Joshua to put pen to paper on a contract for the pair to meet in December, and his rival couldn't make the deal happen in time. Now, it appears that Fury will face Charr instead at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff in a voluntary title defence before facing Oleksandr Usyk next year.

Former WBA 'regular' champion Charr has been angling for a fight with Fury over the past few months, and has remained a constant figure throughout the last few weeks of negotiations for the Joshua bout. Ultimately, he was chosen as the opponent for December 3, which will be Fury's second bout on British soil this year after a four-year absence.

In an Instagram story last night after confirming that he was finished with the Joshua negotiations, Fury wrote: "Looking forward to fighting a man who wants to fight and has fire and desire. Mahmoud Charr fought some of the best fighters and now stepping up again! Get in there, Charr."

Fury's promoter Frank Warren last night insisted that the Joshua negotiations weren't completely dead, and told TalkSPORT that the two sides had engaged in a "good meeting" earlier that day. But Fury took to social media to declare differently and vow never to fight his long-time British rival.

"Well guys, it's official. D-Day has come and gone, it's gone past 5'o'clock Monday and no contract has been signed," Fury said. "It's officially over for Joshua, he's now out in the cold with the wolf pack. Forget about it. Idiot, coward, s***house, bodybuilder. Always knew you didn't have the minerals to fight the Gyspy King. Regardless of what you say now, I don't really care. Good luck with your career and your life, end of."
