Tyson Fury accepts Joshua sparring offer
Tyson Fury says he would “love” to take up Anthony Joshua’s offer of sparring before he faces Deontay Wilder.
Fury, 31, drew with WBC world heavyweight champion Wilder in 2018 and is set for a rematch onFebruary 22.
Joshua, who holds the IBF, WBA and WBO belts, feels Fury would be more likely to agree to a fight for all four titles and offered to help his fellow Briton.
I would love to have you in camp, work out for this fight and give Deontay Wilder a proper beating,” said Fury.
I hope you mean it, as I’d love to have you in training camp with me. When I do beat Wilder I will fight you AJ no problem.” Fury offered his “congratulations” to Joshua for his win over Andy Ruiz Jr on 7 December, where he reclaimed his world titles after losing to the Mexican in June.
Joshua says he has already been “studying” Oleksandr Usyk, who he could face in the short term given the Ukrainian fighter’s status as mandatory challenger with the WBO.
