Tyson Fury has vowed to ‘give the fans what they want’ and fight Anthony Joshua, but issued a stern warning to his British rival not to derail plans for the hotly-anticipated bout by losing to Kubrat Pulev. The potential all-British undisputed heavyweight world title fight is seen as the dream match-up by most boxing fans, but seems unlikely to take place next. Fury has repeatedly spoke of his desire for the world title fight to take place, but he must firstly overcome Deontay Wilder in their mandatory trilogy fight, while AJ has to beat IBF mandatory challenger Pulev. “If I get knocked out by Deontay Wilder, then it won’t be on, will it,” Fury exclusively told Sky Sports. “It will be another fight with Wilder and so forth and so on. If he loses to Pulev, so close, but so far away. In heavyweight boxing, you can never count your chickens before they hatch, so one fight at a time. One victory at a time. “All going well, god-willing, we get on the big fight with me and Joshua, the all-British showdown and I can give the fans what they want to see, especially the British fans. Ricky Hatton in coronavirus self-isolation “It will be the biggest fight since I believe Lennox Lewis and Frank Bruno. It was a while ago, Cardiff Arms Park.” Joshua had earlier said he is relishing the chance to fight Fury and challenged the Manchester-born bruiser to prove he is the greatest heavyweight in the world. He said: “Yes, come fight me. Joshua is relishing the opportunity to fight Fury “If you really want to say you’re No 1, come fight me. Let’s get it on. “I’ve got the rest of the belts so it only makes sense. “I’m the unified heavyweight champion of the world, he’s the WBC champion. What it will prove, me and him fighting? There will be one dominant figure in the heavyweight division that will have all of the belts and become undisputed. “Logically to prove yourself as No 1, I have to fight Tyson Fury. He has to fight Anthony Joshua.” However, Fury’s promoter Frank Warren doesn’t think Joshua’s camp really want the fight. Mikey Williams/Top Rank Frank Warren promotes Tyson Fury alongside Bob Arum He told “My concern, first and foremost, although they talk about it a lot Matchroom, I don’t think they want the fight. “I don’t think they want to put AJ in with Tyson, I really don’t think so. “I hear all the noises, but actions speak louder than words and at the moment it seems to me – and I’m not normally wrong on things like this – I’ve got a gut feeling they don’t want it and I think that’s for a reason.,
