Hughie Fury Would Take Joshua Fight Right Away, Says Trainer

Hughie Fury (21-1, 11 KOs) is inching up the IBF's heavyweight rankings.

Last September in Manchester, Fury challenged Joseph Parker for the WBO heavyweight title - and lost a twelve round majority decision.

He made his return to the ring in May and secured an impressive fifth round stoppage of Sam Sexton to capture the British heavyweight title in Bolton.

Fury is hoping to get his hands on IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world titles that are owned by Anthony Joshua.

Fury is now ranked in the number five position under the IBF - and he hopes to secure another world title shot in the near future. 

According to his father and trainer, Peter Fury, they would accept the Joshua fight as soon as possible.

"We're looking early September. He's ready. If we could challenge for it tomorrow, we would. We're just going to see who we can get, and get him back in the mandatory position as soon as possible," Peter Fury told Sky Sports.

"We wholeheartedly believe in Hughie and we're looking forward to getting there, but that's not quite going to be yet, so we have to look at the next fight, and take it from there. As soon as it comes available, if Hughie is fortunate enough to be in that position, we'll gladly take it."

The IBF recently ordered Jarrell Miller and Kubtrat Pulev to fight each other in a final eliminator - with the winner gaining a mandatory crack at Joshua. Initially Whyte was ordered to fight Pulev - but instead he opted to take on Parker on July 28th in a high profile fight on Sky Sports Box Office.

As far as Joshua, he's in talks for a potential unification with WBC heavyweight title Deontay Wilder. If that falls out, then Joshua would make a defense against the WBA's mandatory challenger, Alexander Povetkin of Russia.

[QUOTE=Squ□redCircle34;18888193]I'm glad you broke it down to the source of all these shenanigans! Simply put, AJ doesn't have the confidence in himself that he can beat Wilder without help from the judges and refs and even then he's got serious…
