Anthony Joshua has accepted Tyson Fury’s offer of a redemption fight this December.
Anthony Joshua’s team communicated the boxer’s acceptance of the terms and conditions to Tyson Fury’s team, and the two are set to clash in a boxing bout dubbed ‘Battle Of Britain’.
Anthony Joshua’s 258 Management and Matchroom revealed on social media that communication has been kept on hold in respect for the passing of Queen Elizabeth II and that they await a response from the ‘Gypsy King’s’ camp.
Tyson Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, has since sent a message to AJ’s camp that the “contract will be with you very soon”.
Tyson Fury recently threw a challenge to Anthony Joshua for a fight scheduled for December. Tyson noted that his preposition gives Anthony Joshua the perfect opportunity to bounce back from his two consecutive losses against Oleksandr Usyk.
“I think you’ve all heard I’m going to be fighting soon, in the next few months,” he said in a video posted to social media. “I think before I announce an opponent, I need to do this just in case.
“Anthony Joshua, I know you’ve just lost a fight to Usyk, and you’re boutless at the moment. I’d like to give you an opportunity to fight me for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world and the lineal championship in the next few months.
“You’re coming off a 12-round fight, so you’re match fit, you’re ready. I’m giving you a few months’ notice. If you’re interested, I’ll send you a date over and we can rumble. A battle of Britain for the WBC championship of the world; if you’re not interested, let me know and I’ll select another opponent.”
