"Bowe never wanted the fight, his manager never wanted the fight and they made so many ridiculous demands".
Lewis, who has spent time with WBC champion Wilder, is adamant it is Joshua who is stalling on the fight to determine a true heavyweight champion.
Dominic Breazeale has called him out, Luis Ortiz even asked for a rematch but neither are go-to options, unless of course a contract is outright signed with Eddie Hearn, Joshua and the rest of Matchroom Sport.
"We all wanted Joshua to take the fight, but it's good news that Fury is prepared to accept it and if he wins it would be a great win - he would have shown the heart of a champion, a real champion".
Wilder is keen to secure a box-office WBC title defence clash, after negotiations broke down with Anthony Joshua last month.
As a result Lewis was promoted to that vacant world title and now reminds Joshua: 'Bowe did everything he could to avoid fighting me but I forced the situation.
"Be prepared to go overseas and fight in other people's backyards, the way I did". Then Riddick had to meet me or vacate.
'Oscar De La Hoya and me were the first to take charge of our business. Anthony needs to do the same with Eddie'. Fury's height (6ft 9in), long reach. mobility and style make him very hard to beat. 247lbs was the exact weight of the Mancunian-born bruiser when he defeated Wladimir Klitschko three years ago to became the unified heavyweight champion of the world. And the better the opponent, the better Tyson is going to look.
"AJ" will instead fight Alexander Povetkin at London's Wembley Stadium on September 22, but he does have April booked in as well, which could be more realistic for Wilder.
The perceived wisdom is that this might be too early for Fury, who has a second warm-up fight against Francesco Pianeta on Carl Frampton's Windsor Park Belfast card next Saturday.

More goals , more assists. "What I saw in the last training sessions and Chelsea and Arsenal games is we are still there". The same when we are thinking defensively, I want our strikers to be thinking: "We need to protect the goalkeepers".
