Old Phone Call Between Anthony Joshua And Tyson Fury From 2019 Proves They Were Destined To Fight

For us boxing fans, it's the fight we've all been wanting to see for years.

And our prayers have finally been answered with Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury set to finally meet inside the ring sometime this year.

But while we were all pleasantly surprised by the news that they'd both signed their unification bout contracts, it seems the writing has been on the wall for some time now and an old phone call from two years ago proves it.

It's no secret that a mutual respect exists between AJ and the "Gypsy King" and they've both openly spoken about how often they call each other.

But in one phone conversation from 2019, Joshua actually predicted that the two British heavyweights would lock horns in 2021 - and, well, he was spot on.

"What's happening AJ?" Fury asked while his FaceTime call was being filmed for an ITV documentary.

To which Joshua responded: "Training, keeping life simple. What's been happening? Training good? Family good? "When are we fighting?"

Fury, who was preparing for his first bout against Deontay Wilder at the time, simply chuckled.

"When are we fighting?! Behave yourself," he replied.

But AJ seemed adamant on getting an answer, claiming: "Sounds like 2021."

I mean, what are the chances?

"I only called you up to say hello," Fury eventually responded as the rest of the people sitting in the pub with him laughed.

Well, two years on and it appears AJ's prophecy has come to fruition.
