Tyson Fury claims he has offered Anthony Joshua a 60-40 purse split in a bid to get a WBC heavyweight title fight made.
Fury had his sights set on a unification bout with WBA, WBO, and IBF champion Oleksandr Usyk at the end of 2022, but has now had to turn his attention elsewhere after it emerged the Ukrainian would not be able to box again this year.
Reigning WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury posted a social media video laying out some of the terms he claims to have offered Anthony Joshua in a bid to get their proposed fight made
The 34-year-old has since offered Joshua, who lost his rematch with Usyk last month, the opportunity to face him before the end of 2022 and posted an update with a video on his Twitter account further outlining his terms.
Anthony Joshua says he would be ready to fight Tyson Fury ‘in December’ after the WBC champion proposed a “Battle of Britain” heavyweight clash.
Talks had begun to match Fury, the WBC titlist, with Oleksandr Usyk, the Ukrainian who beat Joshua last month to defend the unified WBO, WBA, and IBF belts, in an undisputed heavyweight championship fight.
