Tyson Fury has accepted Anthony Joshua's stunning sparring offer ahead of his rematch with Deontay Wilder.
Joshua offered his services to Fury and said he'd be willing to fly to America to help the 'Gypsy King' prepare for his world title bout.
"Fury, if you need me for sparring, we're going to fight one day, I've sparred Tyson Fury when we were kids anyway. I would go out to America and spar Tyson Fury and get him ready for this Wilder fight," the unified heavyweight king said on Sky Sports News.
Fury has wasted no time in responding and has welcomed Joshua's offer to help him prepare. He also said he would then face him afterwards.

"I just saw a video of Joshua on Sky Sports saying he'd love to come me in camp and that I'd fight him quicker than Wilder - that's for sure," he said on Instagram.
"When I beat Wilder, I will fight you AJ no problem and I'd love to have you in camp.
"I'd really love to have you in camp for this fight and give Wilder a proper beating. I hope you mean it because I'd love to have you in training camp. Thanks very much and well done in your last fight, congratulations."
Joshua also believes Fury would accept a fight quicker than Wilder.

"Honestly, I think [Fury] might beat Deontay Wilder next time they're out. That's just my opinion," Joshua added.
"I think Tyson Fury would fight me quicker than Wilder would. If that's the case, I want Fury to win, because I just want to fight.
"To have that fight here on British soil? Man, can you imagine that?!"
Joshua's determined to become the undisputed heavyweight champion after regaining the WBA (super), IBF and WBO titles from Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia.
Fury, on the other hand, is slated to rematch Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title in 2020.
