Tyson Fury offers Anthony Joshua WBC title fight in December

Tyson Fury is at it again with rants and this time offering Anthony Joshua a WBC title fight in December.

In response to his video online, Joshua responded and said he will “be ready in December” after Fury offered the Englishman the chance to fight for his WBC heavyweight title. Joshua responded on social media after Fury posted a video earlier on Monday in which he gives the Londoner “a few months’ notices” to prepare for “a battle of Britain”.

Joshua said:

“Yea calm. I don’t do the online discussions just for clout, so if you really about it shout 258mgt. I’ll be ready in December. Khalas.”

Having fought all fighters there is to fight, Fury is out there searching for a high-profile opponent for his next bout after rival champion Oleksandr Usyk indicated he does not intend to return to the ring until 2023.

Should this fight happen in December, odds comparisons and predictors in the likes of worlds series predictions are likely to have the Watford-born as an underdog heading into the ring.

Anthony Joshua, on the other hand, suffered a second consecutive defeat to the Ukrainian boxer in Saudi Arabia last month and going by the fighter promoter, Eddie Hearn, Joshua is currently considering options for a return early next year.

Fury said in a video posted on social media: 

“You’ve all heard that I’m going to be fighting within the next few months, and before I announce an opponent I need to do this just in case. Anthony Joshua, I know you’ve just lost a fight to Usyk, and I know you’re belt-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.

“You’re coming off a 12-round fight so you’re match-fit, you’re ready, I’m giving you a few months’ notice. If you’re interested I’ll send you the date over and we can rumble – a battle of Britain for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world. Let me know if you’re interested, if not I will select another opponent.”

Fury, who claimed to have to have retired back in April when he successfully defended his world title with a sixth-round stoppage of Dillian Whyte at Wembley, got a positive reaction from Joshua after following up his initial tweet aimed at his compatriot.

Fury said:

“Yo Anthony Joshua what you saying big G let’s give the fans what they want as Usyk is bitching??? I got the date and venue who will rule Britannia?”
