Anthony Joshua says he would be ready to fight Tyson Fury ‘in December’ after the WBC champion proposed a “Battle of Britain” heavyweight clash.
Talks had begun to match Fury, the WBC titlist, with Oleksandr Usyk, the Ukrainian who beat Joshua last month to defend the unified WBO, WBA and IBF belts, in an undisputed heavyweight championship fight.
But it has emerged that Usyk will not be able to box again this year. It leaves Fury looking for an opponent. He wants that to be former champion Joshua next.
