Tyson Fury ‘lines up Joe Joyce fight’ with Usyk bout ‘as dead as it gets’
TYSON FURY will NOT retire from boxing after a fight with Oleksandr Usyk fell through, reports claim.
Instead the Gypsy King could fight fellow Brit slugger Joe Joyce this summer.
Boxing fans had been eagerly anticipating an April 29 undisputed heavyweight bout between Fury and Usyk.
But talks collapsed amid a row over the financials for a potential rematch.
And now ESPN reporter Mike Coppinger says the fight is “as dead as it gets”.
Both fighters are said to be moving on and pursuing alternative bouts after talks fell through.
But Coppinger confirmed Fury is “not looking at retirement”.
It’s claimed Fury already has venues on hold for the summer in the event of his return to the ring.
And Joyce is said to be the front runner to face Fury, with Anthony Joshua and Andry Ruiz Jr also in the mix.
The Juggernaut faces China’s Zhilei Zhang at the Copper Box on April 15 but is a potential opponent for Fury this summer.

Joyce, 37, is unbeaten as a professional and boasts some impressive scalps, including victory the slugfest with Joseph Parker last September.
While Joyce has been tipped as a potential next opponent for Fury, Usyk is set to take on Daniel Dubois when he returns to the ring.
Reports claim talks for the fight are set to get underway next week.
However, a mega showdown between Fury and Usyk could still take place at the back end of this year or early in 2024.
