The heavyweight division looks set to be united as Anthony Joshua has claimed he will be fighting fellow Brit Tyson Fury in a unification bout in June of this year.
It looks set to be one of the biggest fights in British boxing history and something Joshua has alluded to as being “for the fans.”
The contest has been brewing for a while, with the pair having some choice words for their rival on social media over the past few weeks and months.
Fury maintained his undefeated record when he beat Deontay Wilder via TKO in Las Vegas to capture the WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles, while Joshua defeated Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev in December.
Joshua, who currently holds the WBA, IBF and WBO belts, sounds certain that the fight will take place.
This will be music to the ears of the Gypsy King, who feared that the fight wouldn’t go ahead due to the pandemic and AJ’s team.
Joshua Aiming for June
Despite Fury’s doubt for the fight taking place, Joshua has responded, hoping that the bout can be held in the summer.
