Eddie Hearn, promoter and agent to Anthony Joshua has revealed the British-Nigerian boxing champion wants to fight Tyson Fury next, after watching Fury sensationally defeat Deontay Wilder in 7 round knock out on Sunday morning at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

It was the second time Fury and Wilder were fighting, after getting a draw in the first clash in December 2018, and with the win Fury was crowned the WBC heavyweight champion while still retaining the Lineal and Ring magazine heavyweight championship belt.

Fury’s win now means Britain has all the belts in the boxing heavyweight division and Hearn has revealed Joshua wants a unification bout against Fury, a match that if agreed will determine the true king of the heavyweight division.

Speaking on the Weekend Sports Breakfast show on Sunday morning, Joshua’s promoter said he will go all out to set up the all-British clash next.

“I’ve already spoken to AJ and he wants to go into this fight next,” Hearn declared.

“We have to make this fight happen. We will never, ever get the chance for two Brits to fight for an undisputed heavyweight world championship.

“I promise you we will do everything we can to make this fight. It has to happen.”

Wilder has the option to take up a third fight with Fury this summer, but Hearn hopes the American does not do so after he was well and truly destroyed by Fury before his team threw in the towel in the seventh round.
