TYSON FURY has vowed to never underestimate a fighter after seeing Anthony Joshua blow a mega-money Battle of Britain showdown.
The £200million Fury v Joshua heavyweight clash is the one fight fans want.
But AJ, 31, lost his WBA, IBF and WBO titles to Oleksandr Usyk last month to further delay a potential fight with his fellow Brit.
The Gypy King, who
in the early hours of Sunday morning here in Vegas, said: “It’s not just one loss, he’s now been knocked out (by Andy Ruiz) and he’s been beaten on points (by Usyk).
“All these fights, they’re all big fights. If I fight you in a pay-per-view fight, people are still going to want to see what the Gypsy King is going to do.
“It’s the Tyson Fury roadshow. Always has been, always will be.
“I’ve no interest in other people. I’ve no interest in Joshua, anyone out there in the division I don’t care about.
“You know why? Because I’ve got Deontay Wilder to care about.

“Since I beat Deontay Wilder, he’s been a bum and it’s ‘Oh he’s s***, Deontay Wilder is a bum, he was never any good, he can’t box’ cliche s***. Same with Klitschko.
“Before I beat Wladimir Klitschko he was one of the greatest heavyweights of all time.
“After I beat him he was just another bum and it was, ‘Oh he was c**p, he was too old’.
“I don’t make those mistakes. I don’t underestimate anybody, especially not someone like him. He has got a point to prove.
“Out of all the fights I’ve ever had, this is the one I want to win the most. This one.”
Fury is in no mood to listen to AJ talk about a fight with him until he beats Usyk in their rematch.
The 33-year-old WBC champion said: “I’ve not heard anything from anybody because I keep my own business to myself.
“But let’s just say, if it was me who lost to a cruiserweight, then they would have been kicking me in the b****cks left, right and centre. Tell the truth.
“Every man here knows that I’d have been written off.
“It doesn’t really annoy me because I’m not a follower.
“I don’t like to kick a man when he is down, I want to kick a man when he is flying in the sky and everything is rolling for him. Then I want to challenge him.
“I don’t want to challenge him when he’s at his lowest and stick a few more knives in him and make him feel even worse.
“I’ve got nothing bad to say about Joshua. His business is his business. He had to take care of it and he couldn’t and that’s his problem.
“In this game, landscapes change all the time.”
Fury predicts he will be “sad and lonely” when he finally walks away from boxing.
He added: “What motivates me? I’m getting asked this a lot. It’s definitely not a few quid.
“I’m boxing because I can. I don’t enjoy anything else, I don’t have any hobbies.
“After boxing, I will be a very sad, lonely person.
“I’ve tried looking after animals, four-wheeled driving, got a shotgun licence, clay pigeon shooting. Nothing turns me on.”
Fury is sticking to his ‘no sex’ rule ahead of his third fight with American Wilder.
The Mancunian already has six children with his wife, Paris, and made wild claims about pleasuring himself seven times a day before victory over the Bronze Bomber in February last year.
But Fury admitted: “I don’t believe in sex before a training camp.
“I am an old-school fighter and I like to keep nice and strong, keep it all in the tank and then take it all out on the night.”
