Fury Dares Joshua

Tyson Fury says he wants to fight Anthony Joshua in December if his fight with Deontay Wilder does not go ahead.

Fury and Frank Warren, his promoter, confirmed that December 19 is still the planned date for third fight with Wilder, with Warren saying talks had taken place with some locations about a large site fee in case it cannot be held in front of a large crowd in the United States.

But Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion, said he would be willing to face Joshua, the WBA, WBO, IBO and IBF champion, next in the event of Wilder pulling out for some reason, although he also threw in the name of Alexander Povetkin, the WBC interim champion and recent victor over Dillian Whyte, as a possible stand-in.

“If Wilder doesn’t happen, let’s do Joshua in December,” Fury said.
