Tyson Fury has now held all major titles in boxing. He has conquered almost all the big names in the heavyweight division. However, one boxer has been on his list for a while and Fury is eager to fight him.

Tyson Fury names the boxer on his radar

The 31-year-old wants to fight fellow British rival, Anthony Joshua. Joshua who is coming off an impressive win over Andy Ruiz Jr. in their rematch has also shown interest in fighting Fury. However, there’s a catch. Wilder is entitled to a mandatory rematch with Fury.

Tyson Fury is sceptical about the trilogy with Wilder. He said, “He’s got a rematch clause in the contract but he’s only just had his loss and I’ve only just had my victory.”

Nobody can deny Fury the right to celebrate the spoils of war. Although Fury said that he does not want to think of his next opponent, the Brit mentioned Anthony Joshua’s name if Wilder is not interested in a rematch.

“I took the chance, I came over here, I took over America, and that’s it. I’m going to enjoy the spoils of war and enjoy myself tonight and that’s it. If Deontay don’t want the rematch, then let’s go AJ.”

Promoter Eddie Hearn has also teased a title unification bout between Joshua and Fury.


Fury vs Joshua can be a huge matchup in the future. The combined star power between the two can sell out any stadium in their home country. Both boxers have great momentum behind them and their stocks are higher than ever.

Joshua is a much more technical boxer than Fury’s last opponent and he can pose some serious threat to Fury’s undefeated record. On top of that, he has some serious power in his hands. On the other hand, Fury is a refined boxer with incredible movement and brutal power.

Should these two collide, we can finally get to know who is the greatest boxer of this generation.
