Anthony Joshua Accepts to Fight Tyson Fury: “Battle of Britain” Now in the Works for December


What started as a mere drama with Tyson Fury calling out Anthony Joshua for a shot at his WBC heavyweight and Lineal Championship titles via a Twitter video Monday evening, is gaining traction as Joshua has responded positively.

The message from Fury to Joshua had read in part: “Anthony Joshua, I know you’ve lost a fight to Usyk and you’re belt-less at the moment, and I’d like to allow you to fight me for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world and the Lineal championship in the next few months.” He continued: “Let me know if you’re interested, if not I will select another opponent.”

Joshua reportedly responded the same evening on Monday, accepting the offer, posting: “Yea calm, I don’t do the online discussions just for clout, so if you’re really (serious) about it, shout @ 258 mgt. I’ll be ready in December.”

Following Joshua’s response directing Fury to his management team for a discussion on a deal, Fury’s promoter Frank Warren has revealed that they are sending an offer to Joshua’s representatives on Tuesday.

Warren told talkSPORT: “We’re sending a written offer across today to them. My son George spoke with Eddie Hearn yesterday. It’s us who have approached to give AJ a great opportunity to get himself back into the top level against the world champion Tyson.

“He’s willing to make that voluntary defense, so we’ll send the offer across today and then they’ll have to look at it and decide whether they wanna grab this with both hands.

“The terms that we are gonna put forward I think are very, very fair.” Warren added: “In the UK and hopefully in November, that’s what we’re looking at.”

It would seem that the die has been cast for a Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua clash by the end of the year, and we can only keep our fingers crossed.
