Current holder of the IBF, WBA AND WBO champion Anthony Joshua has challenged WBC champion Tyson Fury to a fight, insisting “if you really want to say you’re No 1, come fight me”.
Currently all the world heavy weight belts are in Britain, as Anthony Joshua reclaimed his IBF, WBA and WBO belts from Andy Ruiz Jr, meanwhile Tyson Fury also won his bout against American Deontay Wilder in a match he won in the seventh round to claim the WBC belt.
Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports, the Nigerian British boxer said;
“If you really want to say you’re No 1, come fight me. Let’s get it on.
“I’ve got the rest of the belts so it only makes sense.
“I’m the unified heavyweight champion of the world, he’s the WBC champion. What it will prove, me and him fighting? There will be one dominant figure in the heavyweight division that will have all of the belts and become undisputed.
“Logically to prove yourself as No 1, I have to fight Tyson Fury. He has to fight Anthony Joshua.”
Joshua and Fury’s dream fight for every major belt would, therefore, have to wait until next year
