Let’s Fight While We’re Fresh, Anthony Joshua Tells Tyson Fury

34-year-old Anthony Joshua has urged Tyson Fury to fight him while both boxers are still “fresh”, but says he will not “sit around and wait” for his fellow British heavyweight.

Joshua will challenge Daniel Dubois for the IBF world title on 21st of September at Wembley Stadium.

35-year-old Fury will face Oleksandr Usyk in their rematch in December – a win for the Morecambe fighter and Joshua could set up a blockbuster undisputed fight between the pair.

“Let’s just get the fight on while we’re fresh – how many wars do I have to have before I get to Fury? Let’s go,” Joshua said.

The super-fight, potentially the biggest and most lucrative bout in the division, has been mooted for several years but has stalled during negotiations.

With the recent investment into boxing by Saudi Arabia, however, there is new hope the long-awaited bout will finally materialise.

“It’s a fight that’s been brewing for a long time,” Joshua told BBC Sport on Thursday.

“I can’t wait until I’m 50 to fight Fury because I’d have had so many wars, I can’t sit around and wait, I’ve got to continue to fight.”
