Tyson Fury wants to fight Joshua until the end of the year

Tyson Fury invited Anthony Joshua for a super fight. In an “open letter” published on his social media Monday, Fury, the WBC heavyweight from Manchester, England, addressed his countryman Joshua to an all British mega fight by the end of this year.

Joshua is coming off a tough split decision loss to Oleksandr Usyk in their 12-round heavyweight title unification bout last month in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Afterward, there was public calling for Usyk to face Fury in an undisputed heavyweight fight next, but the two appear to be at a standstill regarding the timeline for the fight; Fury is eager to fight by the end of the year, while Usyk recently said he would not be interested until sometime early next year. Usyk’s response prompted Fury to denigrate the Ukrainian on social media.

Fury has now apparently pivoted to a fight with Joshua, the catch being that Joshua must be ready to fight “within the next few months.” Fury pointed out that Joshua was just involved in a 12-round fight, meaning he should be in fairly optimum shape to get in the ring again relatively soon.

“I think you’ve all heard that I’m going to be fighting soon within the next few months,” Fury said in a video posted on his social media. “I think that before I announce an opponent that I need to do this just in case.”

“Anthony Joshua, I know you’ve just lost a fight to Usyk and you’re bout-less at the moment, and I’d like to give you an opportunity to fight me for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world and the lineal championship in the next few months.”

“If you’re interested I’ll send you the date over and we can rumble. A battle of Britain for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world.”

“Let me know if you’re interested, if not I will select another opponent.”
