Joshua Hopes To One Day Face Tyson Fury: It is a Massive Fight

Former heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua would love to eventually have a blockbuster stadium fight with countryman Tyson Fury.

Joshua will look to get revenge on December 7th, when he faces Andy Ruiz in a rematch for the WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO heavyweight titles in Saudi Arabia.

Fury is waiting in the wings, to face WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in a rematch in February.

Wilder still has to overcome Luis Ortiz in a rematch this coming November.

If everything can fall into place, Joshua would love Fury.

"I always change it, but right now, I'd say Fury at Wembley. The best of Britain. It is a massive fight. You will [see it]," Joshua told Sky Sports.

That fight would be tough to put together, since the two boxers are contracted to rival promoters in the UK and the United States.

According to Joshua, he wants to eventually face every major name at the weight - Wilder included.

"Yes, 100 percent. That's like asking if a certain football team will play another football team. Of course. We're in the same division, in the same era. We have to fight each other. We're all big draws in the heavyweight division so it would be massive," Joshua said.

"I'd love to fight Wilder, I'd love to fight Fury. I'm fighting Ruiz Jr next. The list goes on - there's so many out there that I'd love to compete with.

"It's been a journey. A lot of highs and a lot of lows, from the amateurs to the pros. Through the process you gain experience which has led me to this point in my life."

[QUOTE=juggernaut666;20087409]Well what about the actual embarrassement of the champion declining 100 million ? Ruiz cant call for rematches which I replied to , so the next question is will you admit wilder ducked AJ when he wins after saying he…
