Anthony Joshua Wants A Blockbuster Showdown With Tyson Fury At Wembley

Anthony Joshua Wants A Blockbuster Showdown With Tyson Fury At Wembley

Anthony Joshua has revealed that he would want a blockbuster bout with fellow Brit Tyson Fury in the UK ahead of a fight with Deontay Wilder.

The former unified heavyweight champ, 29, is preparing for his upcoming clash with Andy Ruiz Jr on 7th December in Saudi Arabia.

But when 'AJ' was asked what his ideal fight would be, the Brit superstar said he would love to trade blows with the 31-year-old Fury at Wembley.

He told Sky Sports: "I always change it, but right now, I'd say Fury at Wembley. The best of Britain. It is a massive fight."

When he was asked about the likelihood of the fight ever happening, Joshua responded: "You will [see it]."

The undefeated Fury held off an early scare against Swedish boxer Otto Wallin earlier this month to pick up a victory by unanimous decision.

And the 'Gypsy King' is eyeing up a February 2020 rematch with fierce rival Deontay Wilder.

According to Joshua, he said there is a "100 per cent" chance that he would step in the ring with both Fury and Wilder.

He continued: "That's like asking if a certain football team will play another football team.

"Of course. We're in the same division, in the same era. We have to fight each other.

"We're all big draws in the heavyweight division, so it would be massive.

"I'd love to fight Wilder, I'd love to fight Fury. I'm fighting Ruiz Jr next. The list goes on -- there's so many out there that I'd love to compete with."

WBC champ Wilder, 33, is set to rematch Luis Ortiz in November before he reignites his rivalry with Fury.

Joshua has previously revealed that Fury randomly rings him up and tells him that he is going to 'knock him out.'

And the 'Gypsy King' admitted that he hilariously pokes fun at 'AJ' over the phone and claims that KO artist Wilder might have blocked his number.

Joshua has insisted that his full attention is on unified champ Ruiz Jr as he looks to avenge his stunning defeat to the Mexican-American star in June.

"It's been a journey," he explained.

"A lot of highs and a lot of lows, from the amateurs to the pros.

"Through the process you gain experience, which has led me to this point in my life."
