Eddie Hearn, promoter and agent for IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has revealed the British-Nigerian boxer wants to fight newly crowned WBC champion Tyson Fury.
Hearn made this known after watching Fury sensationally defeat Deontay Wilder in 7 round knock out of their rematch on Sunday morning at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.
Their first bout ended in a controversial twelve round split draw in December of 2018.
There is a contractual clause, where Wilder has the option of forcing an immediate third fight, which would likely take place in the summer, in June or July, if Wilder goes in that direction.
Fury’s win now means Britain has all the belts in the boxing heavyweight division and Hearn has revealed Joshua wants a unification bout against Fury, a match that if agreed will determine the true king of the heavyweight division.
Reacting to the development on Sunday morning, Joshua’s promoter said he will go all out to set up a monster all-British clash next.
