Anthony Joshua believes that the highly anticipated all-British showdown with Tyson Fury will happen eventually. The pair have had two major fight talks fail to get to the ring stage since 2021 and mostly recently in October.

In March 2021, a two-fight deal was signed by both parties starting with a bout in Saudi Arabia on August 14. However, following an official announcement in May, a judge in the US court ruled that Deontay Wilder was due a third fight with Fury putting an end to the agreement.

Joshua then went on to lose to WBO mandatory, Oleksandr Usyk twice potentially killing off the chances of the bout with Fury. But last month it seemed as though British boxing fans would finally be treated to Joshua vs Fury after they entered into negotiations for a December 3 clash.

With Usyk ruling himself out of competition until early 2023, Fury offered Joshua a shot at his WBC title. Discussions appeared to be positive at the start, but communication crashed at the latter stages after Fury set multiple deadlines.

Despite all of the frustrations in trying to make the fight happen, Joshua remains positive and is confident hat the fight will happen

“It will happen. It will happen though. Same generation,” he told DAZN.
