Anthony Joshua insists he is willing to fight either Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury next year as he looks to unify the heavyweight division.
Wilder retained his WBC belt with a controversial split decision draw against Fury last weekend and the American’s team will now discuss options for his next fight.
Wilder’s co-manager Shelly Finkel confirmed! The bronze bomber is “very interested”and the WBA ‘super’, IBF and WBO champion welcomed the challenge in a fiery statement on Twitter.
Responding to Finkel’s comments as reported by Sky Sports, Joshua wrote: “What took this fool so long? Like we ain’t been interested?!! Anyway well done Fury!
Fury came back from two knockdowns, including a heavy fall in the 12th round, to reach the final bell against Wilder.
However, despite appearing the dominate much of the fight, the Gypsy King was denied a famous win after the judges called a draw in Los Angeles.
