Tyson Fury refused to put the boot in on British rival Anthony Joshua after he lost his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles against Oleksandr Usyk.
But the Gypsy King admitted he was “wounded” that 'AJ' blew any immediate hopes of an undisputed fight between the pair.
Fury, 33, faces Deontay Wilder in the defence of his WBC crown a week on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
But he watched Joshua suffer defeat from his Sin City mansion as their £200m super fight was scuppered.
Fury said: “I've got no interest in slating anybody or kicking anybody who is down.
“It ain't my style. I like to pick on people who are doing well, successful and at the top of their game.
“I don't like to pick on someone who is down and probably at their lowest point and maybe mentally unstable and unwell with a big loss after such a long reign.
“Usyk did his job and Joshua has got to do what he has got to do. It is not my business, I've got the Bronze Bomber to deal with and whoever is next we will deal with them.”
Fury does admit it did hurt to see Joshua lose though after he was comfortably outpointed by the brilliant Usyk.
Will Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury still meet in the ring in the future? Let us know in the comments section below.
He added: Usyk did his job, won his fight. Good luck to him. Was I wounded that he won? Yes I was.
“I was hoping Joshua could win the fight but he couldn't.”
Fury was insisting he wouldn't speak about Joshua's defeat or what it meant for them meeting in the future.
He insisted his focus on inflicting a second defeat on Wilder in their third meeting next week.
But he did have some guidance for Joshua after 'AJ' triggered the rematch clause with Usyk for a March return next year.
He said: “My advice to Joshua for the rematch is to get stuck in, put his front foot forward and swing away, swing away.”
