Tyson Fury doubts he will ever fight Anthony Joshua.

The former heavyweight world champion has returned to training ahead of his potential rematch with Deontay Wilder.

The pair fought to a controversial draw last month in Los Angeles with Fury rising from the canvas in the final round.

And Fury believes his performance against the KO artist will mean he never faces Joshua.

"I've already beaten Wilder so that’s one down, and I’ll do the same to Joshua if given the chance," he told BT Sport.

"But I don’t think it’s going to happen, sorry to disappoint the sports fans.

"Joshua, even with two hammers in each hand, could never beat Tyson Fury – and they know it! They know that, they’re not silly. 

"It’s a business as well, so they’re not going to take the fight, simple as.

"They may say they’re going to take the fight, they might talk about it, but then they'll fight somebody else like they keep doing.

"But that fight ain’t going to happen. I’m not holding my breath at all."

Fury and Wilder are expected to clash for a second time in May or June while Joshua is likely to face Dillian Whyte at Wembley on April 13.
