Tyson Fury has put a timeline on when he wants a world title showdown with Anthony Joshua.
Joshua became the IBF heavyweight champion of the world when he sensationally stopped Charles Martin in just two rounds over the weekend, which has led boxing fans to fantasy book a unification fight with WBA, WBO and Ring Magazine titleholder Fury.
Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn has suggested that his London fighter will take on David Haye and Fury in back-to-back spectaculars at Wembley Stadium early next year, but Fury's trainer – Peter Fury – says his man wants the fight even sooner:
"We have to come to our obligation in July [to fight Klitschko] and Tyson will be ready straight after.
We’re going to offer Anthony Joshua the fight straight after the Klitschko rematch. We want the Joshua fight by the end of the year because we want to move on.
I hope we can make that fight – and once that’s out of the way we’ll move onto other things.”
A Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua fight could be worth £40 million.
Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua have made their disdain for one another public knowledge as the result of a Twitter spat last week, but if the two can shake hands on a heavyweight superfight, there's speculation it could fetch as much as £40 million in revenue between a 90,000 gate at Wembley and two million estimated pay-per-view buys.
Make it rain, boys.
