Mayweather sends message to Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury

Floyd Mayweather has told Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury that the heavyweight boxing division would be dominated by a boxer from the United States and the United Kingdom after their reign.

He said this after Fury defeated Deontay Wilder back in February to claim the WBC title, while Joshua reclaimed his belts from Andy Ruiz last December.

With a unification bout likely to happen between Joshua and Fury, Mayweather was quoted by Metro UK as saying: “Boxing is strong all around the world and even if I were in the US I would say the same thing and just because you win one fight, that does not define your career.

“One fight does not define your career. If that is the case, all I had to do was go and fight Manny Pacquiao, and my career would be defined from one fight.

“You can be up here today and down here tomorrow. No fighter should take something for granted.

“We talking about Anthony Joshua, a hell of a fighter.

“Tyson Fury, a hell of a fighter. It does not matter who wins if I’m not getting paid. That’s none of my business.”
