Tyson Fury Says He Wants Anthony Joshua If There's No Trilogy Fight
Tyson Fury has called out Anthony Joshua for a fight, but only if Deontay Wilder doesn't want to invoke his rematch clause for their trilogy fight.
It remains to be seen if Wilder will fancy getting back in the ring with his rival after the Gypsy King dominated him for seven rounds before the towel had to be thrown in.
With talk of a unification fight against fellow British heavyweight Joshua growing, Fury responded to a question about that potential bout by saying 'If Deontay don't want the rematch, then let's go AJ.'
As soon as the fight was over talk of the unification fight with Joshua, who won his three world titles back after defeating Andy Ruiz Jr in another rematch in December, began on social media.
Matchroom Boxing's Eddie Hearn, who promotes the 2012 Olympic champion, took to social media to call for the fight, whilst DAZN, the company who show AJ's fights in the US, also joined the hype for a potential meeting of the two British boxers.

There was discussion on BT Sport about whether or not Wilder would want the rematch, and what extra he could bring, but speaking to Steve Bunce on the channel afterwards Fury revealed he's hoping for the trilogy fight.
Talking about a third fight with the Bronze Bomber, the new WBC champion said he wanted it to take place at the Allegiant Stadium.
The new stadium is set to open in July and will play host to NFL's Las Vegas Raiders, after the franchise moved to Nevada after the end of last season, and will hold be able to hold up to 72,000 people when expanded.
Fury did also take a shot at AJ, criticising him for the fact it could have been him facing Wilder.
Fury's dominance was so clear for all to see throughout the six and a half rounds that he got through until Wilder's corner threw the towel in.
Twice the 2008 Olympic bronze medalist was sent to the ground by the challenger, and he slipped to hit the canvas on two other occasions, and he was left hanging on for the two rounds before the end eventually came.
What next for Fury?
