nthony Joshua has declared his intention to face world champion, Tyson Fury in December.
The British boxer was responding to a public challenge on Monday for a ‘Battle of Britain’.
Joshua lost his title rematch last month in Saudi Arabia to Ukraine’s WBA, WBO, IBF, and IBO champion Oleksandr Usyk.
“Anthony Joshua, I know you’ve just lost a fight to Usyk and you’re bout-less at the moment, and I’d like to give you an opportunity to fight me for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world and the lineal championship in the next few months,” Fury said.
Joshua responded by saying he would be ready to fight if Fury stuck to his word.
“I don’t do online discussions just for clout.
“So if you’re really about it, shout @258mgt (Joshua’s management company). I’ll be ready in December,” Joshua wrote on an Instagram story.
