 Fury welcomes Anthony Joshua double fight, reveals boxer t

British heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury expects to fight Anglo-Nigerian Anthony Joshua at least on two occasions but has revealed the identity of the opponent he is keen on avoiding as he counts down to the final 10 professional bouts of his career.

Fury is billed to fight Oleksandr Usyk on May 18 in a WBO, IBF unification fight which was postponed after he (Fury) picked up an injury in a sparring match in the buildup to the bout that was originally scheduled to hold on February 17 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 

Fury had always seemed unperturbed about the boxer in front of him but in a shocking statement, he is quoted by The Mirror as saying that he would not wager fighting one boxer although unknown to most boxing faithful.

The name of the masked boxer is 18-year-old Slovakian pugilist, Moses Itauma.

"We've talked about 10 more fights and that's the aim. I'm not even 36 yet so I'll go to 40, all these fighters go to 40. If they can line them up quickly I’ll do them. I can get the best out of me when I have two, three, four fights on the spin. If they can do it, fantastic.

"I'll do Usyk, Usyk, AJ, AJ - if he doesn't get beat in the meantime - so that's four. Then I'll do Daniel Dubois and Joe Joyce, then Joseph Parker, that's seven. Then I'll go to America and chuck in an American, maybe Deontay Wilder for a fourth time. Maybe a European, an Agit Kabayel. Then for the 10th, I'll probably do a trilogy with Usyk."

Fury was asked by TNT Sports to list potential opponents for his final 10 fights but when Itauma was mentioned, he said: "No, definitely not! Do you think I'm stupid? No, no no..."
