Fury Says He ‘Wants’ Joshua Fight

by Kunle Awosiyan

Tyson Fury has said he needs to fight Anthony Joshua before he retires from boxing, adding that it would be “a travesty” if the bout was not to take place.

Fury has retired, or threatened to, on numerous occasions, but speaking on The High Performance podcast, the WBC heavyweight champion believes he has unfinished business with Joshua before he can hang up the gloves.

Fury is currently preparing for a WBC title defence against Derek Chisora on December 3 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, while the British star had also hoped to finalise an undisputed world heavyweight title fight with WBA, IBF and WBO champ Oleksandr Usyk early in 2023.

Those plans have seemingly been thrown into disarray after Filip Hrgovic’s team announced he will challenge the Ukrainian next. Usyk defeated Joshua in the pair’s rematch in Saudi Arabia in August.
