Tyson Fury calls out Joshu

28 May, 2023

WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury says he wants to fight fellow Briton Anthony Joshua at Wembley in September and has sent him a contract.

Fury, 34, has not fought since stopping Derek Chisora in the 10th round at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in December.

A fight with Oleksandr Usyk, the IBF, IBO, WBO and WBA champion, was expected to happen in 2023 but fell through.

“A few days ago I sent a draft contract to Anthony Joshua for a fight in September at Wembley,” Fury wrote.

In a post on Instagram, Briton Fury added: “It’s a fight everyone wants to see, including myself.

“Come on AJ let’s give the world what they want to see. This time I’m not going to make a million videos and keep putting pressure on. The ball is now on your side.”

A fight between Fury and two-time world champion Joshua, 33, has long been talked about, but never materialised.

Fury set a deadline in September, which was not met, and said at the time: “It’s officially over for Joshua.

He is now out in the cold with the wolfpack.

“Forget about it. Always knew you didn’t have the minerals to fight the ‘Gypsy King’.”
