Anthony Joshua Believes He’ll Easily Unify the Heavyweight if Fury Beats Wilder

A fight against fellow Briton Tyson Fury can be easily fixed if the Gypsy King snatches the WBC Belt from Deontay Wilder, says Anthony Joshua.

The two-time Heavyweight champion had offered to spar with Fury ahead of his rematch against Wilder but later regretted making the offer public.

“You know when I look back at some of the s**t I say I think, ‘why did I say that?!,’’ he reflected about his offer to spar with Fury, “So now we’re going to talk about it and give more publicised things to talk about!”

However, the 30-year-old believes he can learn something from his fellow countryman who is just a year older.

“Fury is a world-class fighter and I’m a world-class fighter that is still trying to improve so I can become like an elite-level fighter.

“Sparring Fury is only going to do me good, in my opinion. So I’m never too big for my boots where I can’t learn anymore.

“So that opportunity, for me to spar Fury, is for my own benefit as well.”

All through 2019, there had been much talk about Joshua and Wilder meeting but agreements between both camps always ended in a waterlog.

AJ believes his quest to unite the entire heavyweight division can be realized in record time if Fury emerged victorious against his February 2020 opponent.

“I think if Fury had it, me and him would have got a deal done already now.

“So that’s why I was rooting for Fury to win because I just want to fight and collect my last belt.”

Joshua’s next fight will see him take on IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev in March or April.
