“So as it stands, stop listening to the bulls*** until it comes from me, I’m the man in control of my destiny, I’m the man that handles my business.”

Fury has now responded to those claims from Joshua by conducting a poll among his own fans.

The Gypsy King asked his Instagram followers if they thought Joshua would step aside, referring to AJ as a “bum” in the process.

Alongside the ‘yes’ and ‘no’ answers on his poll, Fury also included a third option with another dig at his British rival – ‘I’m injured’.

As it stands, with no step-aside agreements in place, Joshua is still set to fight Usyk in a rematch later this year while the Fury and Whyte camps will have to come to an agreement over their meeting.
