Anthony Joshua’s ambition to duel with Tyson Fury is unstoppable. The former heavyweight world champion is ready to face Fury in the “Best of England” battle at Wembley Stadium. Joshua called the duel against Fury a battle of his dreams.
Before facing Fury, Joshua focused on regaining the IBF, WBA and WBO Heavyweight titles from Andy Ruiz Jr in a rematch on December 7 in Saudi Arabia. “I would say against Fury at Wembley. The best in England. This is a mega duel,” Joshua said.
When asked how likely it will be, Joshua told his fans: “Yes, 100 percent. It’s like asking if a certain soccer team will fight another soccer team. Of course,” he said. “We are in the same division, in the same era. We must fight with each other, ” he continued.
On the other hand, Fury is preparing to face WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in a February 2011 duel. Fury is currently recovering a terrible injury against Otto Wallin in early September.
In fact, Joshua didn’t just want a duel against Fury. He is also eyeing a battle against Wilder. When asked if he will finally fight Fury and Wilder:
“I want to fight with Wilder, I want to fight with Fury. Then I will fight with Ruiz Jr. The list continues – there are so many out there who want to fight,” he said.
Joshua’s focus, for now, is to avenge the shock defeat of Ruiz Jr. in New York on June 1. At that time, his world title and unbeaten record suddenly ended tragically. “This is a journey,” he said. “Through the process, you gained experience that has brought me to this point in my life, ” he said.
