Anthony Joshua has revealed that a fight with Tyson Fury is in the works and will take place ‘sooner rather than later’.

The proposed bout has been dubbed as the biggest fight in British boxing history, and fans have long dreamed about the prospect of the two heavyweights colliding inside the ring.

However, other fights for both opponents have stepped in the way, while Joshua has suffered a number of setbacks including a loss to Andy Ruiz Jr and back-to-back defeats to Fury’s next opponent Oleksandr Usyk.

When Will The Biggest Fight in British Boxing History Happen?

Joshua, appearing as a guest on Good Morning Britain, was asked whether a fight between the pair is on the cards. In response, he told co-host Susanna Reid: ‘It is the golden question, I’d say sooner rather than later.

‘It’s in the pipeline, it’s been bubbling for a long time and it has to happen.

‘We are with you guys. We’re talking about it, it’s definitely going to happen sooner rather than later – mark my words.’

Anthony Joshua Says More

When asked for more information on what he means by the fight being in the pipeline, he added: ‘Not in depth like that (finding a location and date for the fight) but there’s a map.

‘For example, someone would say ‘these are the checkpoints’ and if I can complete these checkpoints then Fury’s part of my journey and I’m part of his I’m sure as well – it would be silly not to.’

Joshua’s next checkpoint is a fight against former UFC star Francis Ngannou in Saudi Arabia on Friday.

Ngannou poses a potentially dangerous opponent after the Cameroonian almost caused a shock against Fury back in October. 

Despite being knocked down, Fury was awarded the victory in a controversial split decision outcome.

Fury will next step foot inside the ring in his delayed heavyweight unification showdown with Usyk on May 18.
