Fury Accepts Joshua Sparring Offer Ahead Wilder Rematch

Fury Accepts Joshua Sparring Offer Ahead Wilder Rematch

Tyson Fury has accepted Anthony Joshua’s offer to help him prepare for his rematch with Deontay Wilder insisting he would “love” to have his domestic rival in camp.

Joshua, 30, has not always seen eye-to-eye with Fury amid calls for the British heavyweights to lock horns.

But ahead of his rematch with WBC champion Wilder in February, Joshua expressed his willingness to spar the Gypsy King to help him prepare.

“Fury, if you need me for sparring… we’re gonna fight one day, I sparred Tyson Fury when we were kids anyway,” the WBA ‘Super’, IBF and WBO chief said on Sky Sports New

“I’d go out to America and spar Tyson Fury and get him ready for this Wilder fight.”

It did not take Fury long to respond, taking to his Instagram story to welcome AJ into his training camp.

“I’ve just seen a video of Joshua on Sky Sports saying he’d love to come and help me in camp and that I’d fight him quicker than Wilder,” he said.

“That’s for sure. When I beat Wilder, I will fight you AJ. No problem.

“I would love to have you in camp. I’d really love to have you in camp for this fight and give Wilder a proper beating.

“Thanks very much and well done in your last fight, congratulations.”

Joshua propelled himself back to the top of the heavyweight mountain earlier this month, putting on a boxing masterclass in his pivotal rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr.

    Nice one hommie boy.. That’s how winners think

     
    • If one plus one is allowed here I will say two things quickly what the offer of Aj and acceptance of Fury. Did Aj really want to fight Wilder? I don’t think so. Does he want to help Fury to win his bout against Wilder? I still think he doesn’t.

      I think Aj is only trying to use Wilder as a training materia for Usyk fight later in February or March 2020.

      So in my opinion, Aj only ask for a sparring partner to come spar with him for free against his match next year.

      Tyson Fury has the kind of body build of Aj’s next opponent. So if you ask me who will benefit more? Without reasoning, I will say Joshua will.

      I still don’t believe Aj is ready for Wilder.
