Tyson Fury Receives Fresh Call Out From Unified Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua
Unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has told Tyson Fury: "If you really want to say you're No 1, come fight me" in an explosive message to the WBC title-holder.
Fury spectacularly relieved Deontay Wilder of the WBC heavyweight belt in a one-sided beating in February.
Every title in the heavyweight division resides in the UK with Joshua in possession of the WBA (super), IBF and WBO belts after reclaiming them against Andy Ruiz Jr last year.
And 'AJ' has called for an undisputed clash with Fury to determine the No 1 heavyweight boxer.
"Logically to prove yourself as No 1, I have to fight Tyson Fury. He has to fight Anthony Joshua" :crown:

"Yes, come fight me," he said. "If you really want to say you're No 1, come fight me. Let's get it on. I've got the rest of the belts so it only makes sense.

"I'm the unified heavyweight champion of the world, he's the WBC champion. What it will prove, me and him fighting? There will be one dominant figure in the heavyweight division that will have all of the belts and become undisputed.
"Logically to prove yourself as No 1, I have to fight Tyson Fury. He has to fight Anthony Joshua."
Joshua's slated to defend his heavyweight titles against mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev while Fury's set to meet Wilder for a third time, but the Olympic gold medalist is hoping a deal could be worked out to face the 'Gypsy King' next.
He added: "It would be amazing to tell Pulev, 'I think it's best if you step aside for now' and to tell Wilder, 'We have bigger fish to fry. Enjoy your Alabama chicken while we get cracking in the UK!'
"That fight needs to happen because there will never be another time like this again."
