Tyson Fury wants to fight Anthony Joshua for the absolute world heavyweight title and satisfy people’s demands, warning his compatriot not to postpone plans for the dream clash, losing in his next match to Kubrat Pulev, BGNES reports.
Kubrat Pulev to Joshua: Don’t be afraid, champion!
The Bulgarian is confident that he will beat the Briton
The “Gypsy King” reiterated his desire to fight with Joshua for the absolute world title, but first he has to overcome Diontay Wilder in the third match between the two, while AJ will defend his belts against the obligatory contender for the IBF belt Pulev.
“If Wilder knocks me out, this game won’t take place, will it? There will be a new game with Wilder and so on. If he loses to Pulev, too. In the heavyweight division, you can’t count your chickens before they hatch, so if it’s all going according to plan, if everything goes according to plan, I’ll fight Joshua and give people what they want, especially British fans, this will be the biggest boxing clash since Lennox Lewis and Frank Bruno. some time ago at Cardiff Arms Park, “he told Sky Sports exclusively.
But Dillian White is also part of Fury’s future plans, as he is a mandatory contender for the World Boxing Council and will get a chance for the title in February 2021. A little over a month ago, Joshua in turn challenged Fury for a match for the absolute world title. “Come on, come and fight me. If you really want to say you’re number one in the world, come and fight me. Let’s get started. I own the rest of the belts, so this match is a logical outcome. What will one prove?” “There will be a dominant figure in the heavyweight division who will have all the belts and be the absolute champion. Logically, to prove myself as number one, I have to fight Tyson Fury. And vice versa,” said Joshua.
AJ’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, put an end to speculation that the match between the two Britons could take place before the defense of their belts against Pulev and Wilder, respectively. “Wilder will not give up, so we will have a match with Pulev. I already had a conversation about a match in 2021. There is no problem for this match to take place next year,” said Fury.
