Tyson Fury Claims to Want a Match with Anthony Joshua in September

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury (33-0-1, 24KO) is attempting to lure former unified champion Anthony “AJ” Joshua (25-3, 22KO) into a fight again.

Boxing fans are giving this callout a seriously raised eyebrow as they have seen this movie before. In September 2022, on the heels of Joshua losing the rematch to unified champion Oleksandr Usyk, The Gypsy King took to social media offering his fellow countryman a shot at the title.

Over the next couple of months came continuous videos, social media posts, and interviews, only for the fight to not happen. Moreover, some fans are still disappointed in the collapse of the undisputed showdown with Usyk earlier in the year.

In fairness, after defeating Jermaine Franklin on April 1, Joshua did call for a fight with Fury. According to British promoter Eddie Hearn, AJ was looking to return to the ring in August ahead of a potential showdown with former WBC champion Deontay Wilder in December.

Fury was last in the ring against Dereck Chisora in December 2022. He’s been looking to make a return to the ring as well, and the nonchalant response from the fans to some of the names that have been dropped could be the reason he is looking to revisit the Joshua fight.

Unfortunately, boxing fans have grown tired of these callouts only for nothing to come from them. Maybe this time will be different, but the boxing world won’t be holding it’s breath.
