FAME, fortune, getting an Anthony Joshua fight, not getting an Anthony Joshua fight, Tyson Fury is relaxed whatever comes his way.

He is happy where he is, proclaiming himself as the lineal heavyweight champion of the world and fighting next on June 15, against little known German Tom Schwarz at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. His bout will be screened by broadcast giant ESPN in American and on a BT Sport pay-per-view in the UK.

Fury will go his own way and it’s not clear yet if that will ultimately lead him to a showdown with British rival Joshua, the unified WBO, WBA and IBF heavyweight champion. “Do you know what? They won’t fight me, so I’m not going to keep talking about him because it’s pointless. I’ve offered the fight umpteen times – it doesn’t seem to be happening, so whenever they’re ready they know where to find me,” Fury said.
