ANTHONY JOSHUA is ready for the ultimate heavyweight showdown against newly crowned WBC champion Tyson Fury.
Fury dismantled Deontay Wilder on Saturday night in their Las Vegas rematch after a seven round masterclass. Now the world awaits a tear up between Fury and the man known as ‘AJ’.
Joshua, the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO belt holder, is due to face Kubrat Pulev in June but is ready to sidestep that to make the fight everyone wants and agree to an all-British showdown with Fury.
“I’ve already spoken to AJ and he wants to go into this fight next,’ Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn said on talkSPORT .
“We have to make this fight happen. We will never, ever get the chance for two Brits to fight for an undisputed heavyweight world championship.I promise you we will do everything we can to make this fight. It has to happen.
“I don’t think anyone wants to see a third fight because it was that conclusive but we will see if he exercises that clause,’ Hearn added.
Wilder now has a month to take up a rematch option.
