Joshua next if Fury beats Klitschko


Tyson Fury is eyeing a future showdown with domestic rival Anthony Joshua if both men come through their next fights, according to uncle and trainer Peter.

Fury's rematch against Wladimir Klitschko was announced for July 9 in Manchester on Thursday, while Joshua fights Charles Martin for the IBF title on Saturday, but the two could face each other later this year.

Both Britons are undefeated, and Fury is happy for that to remain the case until he finally meets Joshua.

"We hope Joshua comes through Martin because it's a massive fight for UK fans," Peter Fury told Sky Sports News HQ.

"If Tyson comes through his obligation and Anthony Joshua comes through Martin tomorrow, there's no reason we can't get that fight on next.

"That's the fight we are definitely interested in, providing both come through their obligations."

And Fury is not looking to rest on his WBO and WBA Super titles should he beat Klitschko again.

"We definitely want it by the end of the year, Tyson is not wanting to sit down, we don't want to wait," his trainer added.

"We want to keep moving forward, keep the momentum going.

"So we are happy for that fight to take place, like I said we've got to get that fight out of the way in July and we will be looking forward to taking that fight next."

Joshua and Fury had exchanged tweets earlier in the week, with the latter taunting:

"I hope u win, as u will make me a lot of money, for an easy fight."

However, he will first negotiate Klitschko, having deposed the Ukrainian in Dusseldorf in November.
