NEW YORK-Tyson Fury mentioned he was keen to present British boxing followers what they need by combating Anthony Joshua for the undisputed world heavyweight title however he mentioned the duo should concentrate on their instant opponents to make such a match occur.
Fury gained the WBC title in Las Vegas three months in the past with a seventh-round stoppage of Deontay Wilder. Joshua defeated Mexican-American Andy Ruiz Jr in a December rematch in Saudi Arabia to reclaim his IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO titles. Joshua’s subsequent struggle is with necessary IBF challenger Kubrat Pulev, however their bout scheduled for June 20 was postponed as a result of COVID-19 disaster. Fury will tackle Wilder in a rematch later this 12 months.
“If I get knocked out by Wilder, then it won’t be on, will it,” Fury advised Sky Sports activities. “It’ll be one other struggle with Wilder… If he loses to Pulev, so shut, however to this point. In heavyweight boxing, you may by no means depend your chickens earlier than they hatch, so one struggle at a time, one victory at a time.
Fury mentioned a gathering with Joshua had the potential to be the most important match since Britons Lennox Lewis and Frank Bruno fought in 1993.
“All going well, god willing, we get on the big fight with me and Joshua, the all-British showdown, and I can give the fans what they want to see, especially the British fans.”
