  • Fury: Joshua Would Be My Easiest Opponent

Anthony Joshua has declared that he is willing to take a pay cut to make a potential fight with Tyson Fury happen in the United Kingdom, rather than an overseas location.

Both British heavyweights have been trading bitter words for some time now and increasing the hopes of the boxing world that an explosive title encounter in the ring will finally come to fruition. The Russian's next bout is set to be a rematch in January, and the WBC have not yet confirmed whether the victor will be due a shot at their champion after that.

While the victor of that rematch could face Fury next year, Sulaiman told Sky Sports that he has great interest in seeing the champion take on WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO titleholder Joshua next.

He said: "There's absolutely great hope from the world to see that undisputed fight".

'Tyson Fury is our champion, our pride. Anthony Joshua holds the other belts and he has been a tremendous asset to the sport.

'To see this showdown, Fury-Joshua, would be tremendous for everyone in the sport of boxing.

The third season began airing in early 2020, with the latest episode, a Christmas special, airing on 30 November on Disney XD. So we will surely miss the series very much and so much excited to see the finale of the series.

Joshua is due to defend his belts against Bulgaria's Kubrat Pulev on December 12 at the O2 Arena in London.

Victory over the big Bulgarian would ensure Joshua remains on course to meet Fury and take on the glamorous showdown fight at the pinnacle of the sport.

The "Gypsy King" is contractually obliged to face the America for a third and final fight, after a controversial draw in their first meeting and a resounding victory for Fury in their second.

But Sulaiman has insisted that the WBC will do everything it can to make the fights - or at least an initial clash - happen.

"We're just hoping that everything gets resolved and everybody is happy and we see great fights inside the ring".
