I accepted, they haven’t turned up, take what you want from it, that’s it.‘Joshua’s nothing like Wilder but I’d like to bring him over and give him good hiding anyway. But they’re not going to come, let’s face it,” Fury told BoxingScene.com.“They’re not going to come over and get beat up in sparring. It was just a stupid offer at a stupid time wasn’t thinking, I accepted straight away, me being me, and that was it. I don’t read into it too much, he ain’t coming, simple as. He ain’t got the bollocks to turn up and spar, end of.”Fury also uses the opportunity to criticize Joshua’s win over Andy Ruiz in Saudi Arabia.“I don’t think it was a great performance. I thought it was a hit and run, sh-thouse style, coward. Every time he stood still Andy rocked him to his boots. But it was what it was. He got the decision, fair play. On to the next one,” Fury said.
