Tyson Fury declared desire to fight Anthony Joshua on way home from Wilder win

Tyson Fury has declared his desire to fight Anthony Joshua despite the Watford based fighter losing his belts to Oleksandr Usyk earlier this month.

Fury retained his WBC Heavyweight Championship after he put Deontay Wilder on the canvas on three separate occasions.

The Gypsy King also found himself facing the ten count twice in fourth, but he showed his grit to defy the count.

And after completing his trilogy with Wilder, questions have been raised as to who he will step onto a ring with next.

And speaking to BBC Breakfast on Wednesday, Paris Fury has hinted that it could be AJ.

"[On fighting Joshua] Tyson would love to," Paris revealed when prompted about the topic.

"As soon as we were on the flight home Tyson was saying 'I want to fight AJ, that's the next fight'.

"But AJ has his own fights and Tyson has other people up and coming and mandatories for the belts.

"It will only be what the higher of the boxing society can allow."

Unfortunately for Fury and boxing fans, a Fury vs AJ fight looks to be a million miles away at the moment.

Fury's next bout looks highly likely to be his mandatory WBC defence, against Dillian Whyte.

And the only way to avoid that bout is by setting up a unification clash with Usyk.

But a unification bout has its own problems as it would require Joshua to step aside from his rematch clause.
