Tyson Fury wants a huge world title fight against Anthony Joshua to satisfy public demand and warned his British rival not to derail plans by losing to Kubrat Pulev.
Unified champion Joshua would ‘sign now’ for a showdown with WBC champion Fury, according to promoter Eddie Hearn, who hopes to secure two blockbuster battles between the Brits in 2021.
Fury has reiterated his desire for an undisputed world title fight, but must firstly overcome Deontay Wilder again in a contracted third clash, while Joshua next defends his belts against IBF mandatory challenger Pulev.
“If I get knocked out by Deontay Wilder, then it won’t be on, will it,” Fury exclusively told Sky Sports.
“It will be another fight with Wilder and so forth and so on. If he loses to Pulev, so close, but so far away. In heavyweight boxing, you can never count your chickens before they hatch, so one fight at a time. One victory at a time.
“All going well, god willing, we get on the big fight with me and Joshua, the all-British showdown and I can give the fans what they want to see, especially the British fans.
