Anthony Joshua reveals why he WILL fight Tyson Fury and expects to do ‘good business’ with heavyweight rival

ANTHONY JOSHUA is not losing hope of a super-fight against Tyson Fury with big business still to be made.

The pair of heavyweight rivals were in talks for a shock December 3 Battle of Britain in Cardiff.

But opposing promoters could not get a deal done in time, with Fury instead moving on to a trilogy bout with Derek Chisora.

Joshua told DAZN: “I was supposed to be in the ring December 3. That was the date, but obviously it’s not happening.

“I’ve got a great team. I’m someone who loves doing business, I believe in doing good business and good contracts.

“But I have a good team and I’ve just got to leave certain things to them.

“All that other stuff, back and forth on social media, it’s quite time consuming.

“There’s a good and a bad on social media, like anything, so it’s not annoying but you’ve got to play the game as well.

“My dance partner, the last geezer I was supposed to fight, he’s a good dance partner.

“He handles social media side of things. I think we’d do good business behind the scenes. It will happen.”


Fury, 34, has maintained his December 3 return date against Chisora, 38, the man he beat in 2011 and 2014.

Meanwhile Joshua, 33, is taking time out to mentally recover from his back-to-back points losses to Oleksandr Usyk, 35.

He said: “You saw after my last fight, I swear it tore me apart. I had so much riding on it, for me, the British fans, the undisputed fight.

“It just really tore me apart so, from a mental capacity, my close ones are telling me to rest, mentally.

“Physically I am down to ride, I am a warrior, I like this game and I like competing.

“But, from a mental aspect, I think people have really seen it means a lot.”
