Unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has called out Tyson Fury, challenging his WBC counterpart to prove he’s the best heavyweight on the planet by defeating him.
“Yes, come fight me,” the Olympic gold medallist told Sky Sports when asked if he had a message for 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.”
