If 2021 works out well for the boxing fans, WBC champion Tyson Fury can fight unified titleholder Anthony Joshua to cement one of the biggest heavyweights clashes of all time. While the matchup is being billed as a contest between two equally skilled heavyweights, Fury seems to enjoy the ‘favorite’ spot.
He has constantly claimed that he will vanquish Joshua when they collide inside the ring. Although Joshua has said the same for Fury, the undefeated WBC champion can still have an upper hand over ‘AJ’.
‘The Gypsy King’ posted a quick clip on Twitter to update followers about his condition.
“Another run done, smashed. Training session down, Monday morning. We are still in January, let’s keep this positive January going. Smash all your goals this year”, said Fury.”
He added, “No retreat, no surrender. Peace out.”
Anthony Joshua is not the only lucrative fight available for Fury, as Deontay Wilder is still relevant with a possible trilogy clash. Following a draw in the first fight, Fury beat Wilder in the rematch. Hence, the trilogy can settle things once and for all.
Deontay Wilder has demanded the trilogy fight after remaining silent for a long time. However, ‘The Gypsy King’ has said he will not grant this to ‘The Bronze Bomber’.
Fury seems to have entered a mission to beat Joshua. After Joshua’s KO win over Kubrat Pulev, the entire boxing world wished to see him fight Fury next.
The WBC champion also accepted the offer, and it’s the right time to see them clash. Meanwhile, Deontay Wilder can still return against any top-rated fighter. If he wins, it will resurrect his position as an elite heavyweight contender. Till then, ‘The Gypsy King’ and ‘AJ’ can box for all the belts.
The current heavyweight title picture is impressive with several possibilities for the future. If promoters can pass the contract negotiation stage, the current year will be a blockbuster.
