Joshua Claims He Is Ready To Fight Wilder Or Fury

Anthony Joshua has said that he is ready to fight Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder as soon as they are ready while he hit out at the American for his bout against Fury at the weekend. 

Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, is in Los Angeles this week for talks with Wilder’s representatives over the possibility of a fight in April.

The Brit rejected the chance to fight The Bronze Bomber in a £37 million bout earlier this year. He wasn’t present at the thrilling drawn fight between Wilder and Fury at the weekend and had made no comment about it; until now.

Joshua took to Twitter to call out Wilder who he labelled a “fool” before praising the Gypsy King.

In response to reports that Wilder is interested in fighting him, Joshua wrote, “What took this fool so long? Like we ain’t been interested?!’

“Anyway, well done Fury! They wanted to get you because they assumed you were finished. I’ll give you a fair one when you’re ready! Either one of you!”

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Hearn confirmed that Fury has been added to the list of potential match-ups for the 29-year-old.

“Before we were looking at Deontay Wilder, Dillian Whyte or Dereck Chisora if he beats Whyte for April 13. Now we can put Fury on that list.”
