WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury says he wants to fight Anthony Joshua and promised to knock him out in the third round.
Fury who is the current WBC heavyweight champion of the world, made this known, shortly after Joshua scored a KO victory over Kubrat Pulev at Wembley on Saturday.
Joshua retained his IBF, WBA, and WBO titles by flooring Pulev three times before sent him crashing to the canvas in the ninth round.
Fury said in a social media post that he and Joshua must agree to do a fight.
“He got asked if he wants the fight and he went around the bushes.
“I want the fight. I want the fight next. I will knock him out inside three rounds!”He said.
Meanwhile, the promoters of both heavyweight boxer revealed they are working next on the unification bouts.
Fury’s promoter, Top Rank’s Bob Arum, said: “It looks like the stage is set for the biggest heavyweight championship fight since Ali-Frazier in 1971 when Fury meets Joshua for the undisputed crown.
“We at Top Rank will start on Monday working to put that fight together.”
Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn also reiterated Bob Arum’s comments: “Starting from tomorrow, we make the Tyson Fury fight straight away.
“We know what we have to do. We know what we want to do. It’s about legacy.” He said.
