Speaking to Charlotte Daly, Fury said: ‘It probably won’t even be this year, actually. 

‘Because we’re doing a fight in May and we’ll do one in the Riyadh season again, the end of the year, so yeah, probably next year now’.

The Gypsy King – who triumphed via split decision when he faced Ngannou back in December – also weighed in on who wants to win the bout, ahead of a potential fight next year. 

Fury said: ‘Whoever wins it’s big for me. If AJ wins, it’s a good opportunity for a big British showdown again, and if Ngannou wins, and it’s a good opportunity for a rematch for me. 

‘So it’s, it’s a win win for me. Yeah, make no mistake that the winner of this, I will potentially give them a world title shot later on in this year or next’. 

Fury was meant to take on Usyk in mid-February, however, after suffering a nasty cut was force to postpone the bout.

However, while speaking on Mail Sport, the British boxer reflected on how well the cut has healed and suggested he’ll ‘fight with the cut’ if needed.

He said: ‘Can you not see it? It’s not visible, which is fantastic. It’s healing up nicely. And I shall be ready for the camp at the end of March. 

‘Yeah, it was one of those things. Shit happens and we get on with life move on’.

Fury’s comments come shortly after Joshua said that a dream British heavyweight showdown is ‘in the pipeline’.

When asked if he would fight Fury on Good Morning Britain, Joshua said: ‘It is the golden question, I’d say sooner rather than later.

‘It’s in the pipeline, it’s been bubbling for a long time and it has to happen.

‘We are with you guys. We’re talking about it, it’s definitely going to happen sooner rather than later – mark my words.’ 

When asked for more information on what he means by the fight being in the pipeline, he added: ‘Not in depth like that (finding a location and date for the fight) but there’s a map. 

‘For example, someone would say ‘these are the checkpoints’ and if I can complete these checkpoints then Fury’s part of my journey and I’m part of his I’m sure as well – it would be silly not to.’
