TYSON FURY has denied he is in talks to come out of retirement to fight the winner between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk.
Joshua rematches Usyk this year in a bid to reclaim the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles.
And it would set up an undisputed super-fight with WBC champion Fury, who is still retired after beating Dillian Whyte.
And according to the Daily Mail, the Gypsy King was already speaking with Saudi backers for a unification in December.
But the man himself has now come out and slammed the claims.
Fury reacted to the reports on Instagram: “This is all news to me! Biggest load of rubbish ever!”
The unbeaten British legend announced his retirement aged 33 after knocking out Whyte, 34, in April at Wembley.
It would mean any hopes of the first-ever, four-belt heavyweight unification were dashed.
But despite Fury’s denial, AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn is hopeful the Gypsy King’s mind can be changed.
He believes a win for Joshua, 32, over Usyk, 35, in their sequel set for August 20 in Saudi could tempt Fury back by the end of the year.

Hearn told SunSport: “I think the fight between AJ and Fury is always there.
“I mean, I still get questions walking down the street, even today, ‘When’s AJ fighting Fury?’ It’s like, ‘He’s got Usyk first’. ‘Oh, has he?’ .
“So of course, you don’t want to go back-to-back defeats but Usyk is also pound-for-pound, I think possibly No1 right now.
“Losing to Usyk is never terrible, the Fury fight is always there, but for the undisputed heavyweight world championship, which it would be, it would just be the biggest fight of all time.
“And I think if AJ beats Usyk, that would be an automatic fight that you will see in December.”
