Fury Targets Joshua Fight Before Retirement 

Fury Targets Joshua Fight Before Retirement 

British heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury reveals he wants to fight Anthony Joshua before he retires from boxing.
Fury, 31, insisted he will only have three fights left after he rematches WBC champion Deontay Wilder, 34, with Joshua being one of them.

Aside Joshua, Fury also listed listed Dereck Chisora, whom he defeated in 2011 and 2014, as another boxer he wants to face before calling it quit.

A United fan, Fury claimed he tried to bring his second fight with the Wilder Manchester to complete an ambition of fighting at Old Trafford.

Fury told BT Sport: “I’m happy just doing what I’m doing, ticking along nice and slowly and just take a few more scalps before I hang the gloves up. Three more.

“I’m going to knock Wilder out, and he’s not going to want a rematch, I’m going to fight Joshua, I’m going to beat him too, and then I’ve always said to my old pal Derek Chisora I’d have a farewell fight with him.

“Maybe we can get the Old Trafford fight with old Del Boy.

“And then it’s curtains on a fantastic career.”

Fury was aged 22 when he became the first man to defeat Chisora after outpointing the Brit before scoring a stoppage victory three years later.

Initially Fury claimed he would face Dillian Whyte as part of his final three fight plan. 

But the unbeaten heavyweight and his US promoter Bob Arum want to make a Battle of Britain between the Gypsy King and AJ, 30.

And Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn is also hoping to match the domestic rivals, and even suggested they would be more likely to fight in Saudi Arabia – where Joshua won back his belts against Andy Ruiz Jr.
