TYSON FURY and promoter Frank Warren are refusing to ever entertain a showdown with Anthony Joshua again.
The rivals were on course to throw down in 2021 before Deontay Wilder threw a spanner into the works by winning his arbitration for a trilogy fight with Fury.
The biggest fight in the history of British boxing almost came to fruition late last year when Fury threw AJ a shock world title lifeline.
But negotiations failed to bear fruit, much to the frustration of Warren, who told SecondsOut: “I wouldn’t even want to go down that road again.
"We wasted a lot of time.
"I know you’ve got the people who wonder who was telling the truth, we were telling the truth.

"When you look at it, he never had a trainer or anything so what on earth were we negotiating for to fight in December.

"I don’t want to keep going back to Tyson, Tyson won’t even entertain it at the moment, absolutely not.
"I don’t even want to bring up Anthony Joshua’s name to him.”

Fury, 34, said of throwing down with the former two-time unified heavyweight champ: "I don't even go there anymore.
"No interest in any AJ questions. Zero. Man's dead in my eyes.
"There's no business between me and him to be done. Finished."
Fury is currently in negotiations over a blockbuster undisputed heavyweight title fight with Oleksandr Usyk.
But talks have hit the rocks following a dispute over the 50-50 purse split, which Team Fury believe is unfair.
