TYSON FURY has taunted Anthony Joshua ahead of the announcement of their undisputed heavyweight title fight, insisting he ‘can’t be beaten’.
The biggest fight in the history of British boxing is set to take place in the summer, with a rematch likely to happen in late November or December.
And The Gypsy King is brimming with confidence ahead of the long-awaited Battle of Britain.
He told iFL TV: “See, if I am looking for a challenge, I have been looking, searching the world for 13 years, a professional to find a man who can better me.
“And I just can’t find him. Even if I go away, I still can’t be beat.
“I am like the bionic action warrior. I can’t be beaten.”
WBC heavyweight king Fury will go into his clash with Joshua on the back of a lengthy layoff.
The 32-year-old hasn’t fought since his emphatic dethroning of Deontay Wilder in February 2020.

And the fan favourite recently claimed he’s taken his foot completely off the training pedal, although he’s confident he can still do a job on Joshua.
He told MTK Global: “I’m not training anymore.
“I only need six/seven weeks anyway for these bums.
“I don’t need no big, great sparring partners for a bodybuilding type of guy, I just need the local binmen.
“You never know if I’m telling the truth or not.
“When I tell the truth, people don’t believe me anyway, and when I don’t tell the truth, they still don’t believe me.
“Everything I said in my whole career I backed up.”
SunSport understands Fury’s multi-million-pound showdown with AJ is set to be announced by the end of the month.
A non-disclosure agreement has prevented both parties from discussing the progress of the deal at great length.

During a recent appearance on the AK & Barak Show, Matchroom Boxing chief Eddie Hearn said: “I don’t think it’ll be that long.
“Hopefully, we can drop some news to you soon.
“That process has been going on for two weeks now [choosing venue]. We’ve agreed to terms, so now we’re moving forward with the venue.
“First thing, we want to see some pen on paper. Right now, I’d say Las Vegas, Singapore is a frontrunner right now, and the Middle East.
“Those talks are a little more advanced now than they were a couple of weeks ago. We’re in March. We want to tie this fight up by the end of June.”
