Hearing from the fans a loud "Fury!" AJ continued: “It would be an honor for me to fight for the WBC heavyweight belt. I stand here and declare: it will be an honor for me. Wherever you are, if you are listening, you know my team, my promoter... We have already talked about this fight, so let's get back to this issue, and hopefully, sooner or later we will fight. We don't have much time, we're not getting any younger, I'm looking forward to big fights!"

The idea of ​​a duel between Joshua and Fury also appealed to London promoter Eddie Hearn. “We are ready to resume these negotiations in order to go directly to the fight with Tyson Fury in the summer. But we also have other options: Dillian Whyte, Deontay Wilder. I think Anthony will improve under Derrick James but at the same time we want big fights!” — said the head of Matchroom Boxing.
