Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua- Winner Takes It All

WBC champion Tyson Fury had his last appearance in February 2020 against Deontay Wilder. He claimed the world title with a lopsided KO win to craft the path for a title unification clash with Anthony Joshua.

Nevertheless, Joshua had to fight his way through a scratchy loss against Andy Ruiz Jr. He bounced back stronger from the defeat and reclaimed his unified titles in 2019 by vanquishing Ruiz Jr. in a rematch.

That said, ‘AJ’ further returned to the KO column by stopping Kubrat Pulev in December 2020. Thus, it set the ultimate stage for a unification fight.
