Anthony Joshua is chomping at the bit to get a fight against Tyson Fury, who he strongly believes deserved a win over WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder last December. Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs) is hoping that Fury will agree to fight him after he faces Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KO) in their rematch, which still hasn’t been negotiated.
