Tyson Fury wants to fight two opponents in one night to get over Joshua debacle

Tyson Fury wants to fight two boxing opponents in one night to get over his ongoing Anthony Joshua debacle.

Both fighters had agreed to meet in a mouth-watering all-British contest at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on December 3, with contracts reportedly sent to Joshua's management. However, Fury stated on Monday that the bout was off after Joshua had failed to sign a contract for the fight before the Gypsy King's self-imposed deadline.

He has now teased that he could take on two opponents in the same night after already verbally agreeing to face Mahmoud Charr, who is currently ranked 62nd in the world.

Responding to Charr on his Instagram story, Fury stated: “Just been doing a little bit of brainstorming. December 3rd’s coming, Mahmoud Charr’s agreed. Why don’t I fight two people in one night?! Mahmoud Charr and somebody else!

"That would be pretty damn awesome. I’d probably be the first WBC heavyweight champion to have two fights in one night and that is a guaranteed fact. What do you think? What we saying?”

Syrian heavyweight Charr had thrown his name into the hat to fight Fury following the news that Fury's bout with Joshua would not be going ahead.

Fury agreed to his callout on social media, replying: “Manuel Charr, so it seems now that AJ is finally out. He’s docked his way out in a s***bag. Coward. You’re the man who wants to fight, so I like that.

“I like the fact that you are very vocal and the fact that you are calling for a fight like a real man should do. Any man who wants to fight another man should call him out, as you have been doing to me. So I accept your challenge Manual Charr, so let's get it on!”

In another twist to the saga, though, Fury breathed new life into his potential bout with Joshua on Thursday by extending the deadline to sign the contract and telling his fellow Brit that he "cannot escape".

His latest outburst left Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn "baffled" by the ongoing fiasco as the WBC heavyweight champion continues to ramble about the negotiations on social media.

Fury set his sights on long-time rival Joshua following his defeat to Oleksandr Usyk last month, with the Ukrainian delaying a bout to crown the undisputed heavyweight champion by stating he does not want to fight again until 2023.
