Joshua ready to fight Wilder or Fury - when they are ready

Joshua ready to fight Wilder or Fury - when they are ready

Negotiations for a fight between Wilder and Joshua, the WBA "super" IBF and WBO champion, broke down earlier this year, but Finkel is willing to resume, provided that details of his talks with Matchroom Boxing boss Eddie Hearn remain private.

Tyson Fury says that Anthony Joshua's world-title belts still belong to him as he remains undefeated since beating Wladimir Klitschko.

"You'd think they'd want the rematch, they've said they do." said Warren of Wilder's camp, with next Spring the rumoured target.

And promoter Warren is planning action in a bid to at least enforce a rematch, having been outraged by judge Alejandro Rochin's scoring, which contentiously had Wilder winning the first four rounds en route to a 115-111 success.

Wilder scored two knockdowns, but he was unable to put Fury away in a bout where the feared puncher had a lot of trouble with Brit's movement and defense.

"But I didn't see any folding, Ben".

If nothing else, both fighters dramatically raised their profile and proved that the heavyweight division is the glamour division of the sport. "I take nothing away from this fight, but we won this fight", Wilder stated.

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will have reversed roles when, as expected, they meet next year for a re-match of their instant classic heavyweight bout. I just wanted the best for boxing here in America and boxing in general - which lead me to get overly anxious to knock his head off so I abandoned the game plan.

If everything is in the paper, I have no desire to discuss anything, and let him go fight who he wants.

"If it was up to me - and only me - I would like to do the Fury fight first because I think there is unfinished business".

"To beat the champion you must dominate the champ and to me I was the more aggressive fighter and landed the more effective punches".

Joshua last fought in September, when he successfully defended his belts by stopping Alexander Povetkin in seven rounds at Wembley.
