Tyson Fury said his career would be “completed” if he faced fellow Briton Anthony Joshua after becoming a two-time world heavyweight champion with a stunning win over Deontay Wilder. Fury, 31, stopped Wilder in seven rounds of their Las Vegas rematch to claim the WBC title four years on from giving up the IBF, WBO and WBA belts now held by Joshua.
Wilder can request a rematch but Fury pointed to a meeting with Joshua if that does not happen. He said: “I’ve got another old fella across the pond who might want a little tickle. “Then that is it then. It’s completed. Done.” Announcing himself at his post-fight media conference by screaming “are you not entertained?”, Fury then promised reporters his recent switch to American trainer SugarHill Steward will produce even greater results than this one. “I have only just started with this style,” Fury said. “We will be putting people to sleep right, left and centre. “I need to enjoy this. Deontay will need time to recover. I am sure he will take a rematch as he is a dynamite puncher and with that you are always in the fight. Whoever is next will get the same treatment, that is for sure. “This was written in the stars a million miles away – before I was born I was destined to do what I do.” Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn says he will do “everything” to make a match with Fury that could lead to one man holding all four heavyweight titles for the first time. “I have said and I will make this clear, we have to make this fight happen,” Hearn told Talksport. “We will never get the chance for two Brits to fight for an undisputed heavyweight world championship. “The first thing is that Wilder has the rematch clause. I don’t think anyone wants to see a third fight – it was that conclusive – but we will see if he wants to exercise that. “Our mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev is also promoted by Bob Arum, Tyson Fury’s promoter, so there is a very easy manoeuvre there if Wilder doesn’t want the rematch to go straight into this undisputed fight in the summer. “I have already spoken to Joshua. He wants this fight. He has zero fear of fighting Tyson Fury and he wants to be undisputed.”
