Bosker Tyson Fury has challenged Anthony Joshua for the world heavyweight title in the WBC. The English world champion has sent a contract proposal to his compatriot.
“It’s a fight everyone wants to see,” Fury said on Twitter on Friday. “Me too. Come on AJ, let’s give the world what everyone wants to see. This time I won’t make a million videos and put pressure on you all the time. The ball is in your court now.”
The ‘Battle of Britain’ should take place at Wembley in September. Fury is the reigning world champion after beating compatriot Dereck Chisora in London last December. It was Fury’s sixth world title.
Initially, the plan was that the 34-year-old Fury and the one year younger Joshua would fight against each other. The match was canceled because Fury had not signed a contract in time.
Joshua could use some success. The Englishman lost in his last two title fights to Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk. The last time Joshua won a title match was in December 2020, against Bulgarian Kubrat Poelev.
