Promoter Frank Warren has pushed Anthony Joshua to let Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk decide the undisputed heavyweight title.
Unstoppable duo After their outstanding victories over Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua, Fury and Usyk now possess every major belt in the division, but a fight between them to determine the division’s real No. 1 is doubtful within the next year.
Joshua has activated a rematch clause and will face Usyk again in April 2022 to reclaim the IBF, WBA, and WBO titles.
“He shouldn’t be going through with it,” WBC champion Fury’s UK-based promoter Warren told Sky Sports about Joshua.
“It’s his choice.
“If he knocks it on the head, it opens the door for us to do the unification [Fury vs Usyk].
“Let AJ get a warm-up fight. He needs a winning mentality before he goes into [a rematch with Usyk].
“Maybe he fights the winner [of Fury vs Usyk] which is still a big fight.”
Warren said about Fury vs Usyk: “They have similar skills. Tyson wouldn’t fight him like AJ did. Tyson would use his physical attributes, his size and reach, and would win the fight.”
