Tyson Fury has told Anthony Joshua to ‘grow a pair’ and fight him in December.
The ‘Gypsy King’ is currently closing in on a trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder on December 19, though the fight is far from certain given the ever-changing global situation.
As things stand, Fury vs Joshua looks more likely for 2021
Therefore, Fury declared on BT Sport after Daniel Dubois’ win: “Here we go. If Wilder don’t happen, let’s do Joshua in December.
“Why not? It’s a boxing match, let’s get it on.
“I’m ready to go now. I could fight him in that ring tonight, it don’t really matter, I’d still kick his ass.
“If I was in their position, had a chance at glory to go to America and beat Wilder, but they didn’t take it.
"If Wilder doesn't happen, let's do Joshua in December. Why not?"

“So I had to come out of retirement, set about him a couple of times, take the number one spot, take all the glory, and now they’re all looking up to me.
“He must be looking up thinking, ‘Do you know what? That could’ve been me.”
“But it wasn’t, so it is what it is. It’s their own fault. It’s played a massive part in how it’s all panned out now.
“They’ve gotta come though me, so I’m saying, ‘Grow a pair, come see the champ.’”
As things stand, AJ remains contracted to defend against his IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev next, meaning the Fury bout is more likely for 2021.
