Britain’s sensational boxer and current IBF, WBO and WBA champion, Anthony Joshua may get down with Tyson Fury in April in what many have called the biggest fight in the history of boxing.
Joshua, who hails from Nigeria but is a citizen of the United Kingdom had just beaten Kubrat Pulev and is most likely to take on Fury sometime next year in a unification bout.
Joshua had told Sky Sports when asked about a possible match with Fury that it was about the legacy and the belt and not the opponent.
“I started this game in 2013. I’ve been chasing all the belts. I’ve been dealing with mandatories, of course I want the challenge. It’s not about the opponent, it’s about the legacy and the belt.
“Whoever has got the belt, I would love to compete with them. If that is Tyson Fury, let it be Tyson Fury. It’s no big deal.
“It’s one fight at a time, picking them off one by one. That’s all it’s about for me. I’ve got to stay focused.”
Fury, the current WBC champion had taken the challenge to twitter , calling Joshua out and promising that he would knock him out in three rounds.
“I want the fight. I want the fight next. I will knock him out inside three rounds,” he said in a video posted to Twitter.
