Hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is worth nothing that you should not get your hopes up for Joshua-Fury.

It goes without saying that if these two ever manage to enter the same ring it could be the biggest fight in British heavyweight boxing history. Or at least up there.

But the reality is that this fight is far away. Very far away. First of all, Joshua has a rematch with Wladimir Klitschko but of course, you knew that already. After his second showdown with the Ukrainian, Joshua still has other business to take care of.

Kubrat Pulev, remember him?

The reason why the rematch against Klitschko is happening in the first place is that the IBF pulled the rug under mandatory challenger Pulev. Eddie Hearn has confirmed on multiple occasions that Joshua will face the mandatory challengers after Klitschko. Notice the plural.

Luis Ortiz, remember him?

The Angry Cuban ain’t a happy camper. Ortiz is the mandatory challenger for Joshua’s WBA strap and he is willing to do everything in his power to get a title fight. It’s a long shot that the WBA will grant Joshua any exceptions and he will have to defend his belt against Ortiz at some point.

And then there is the case of Fury getting his license back and not get suspended by The U.K Anti-Doping Agency. Currently, Fury’s legal team is doing their best to solve the situation. But the nasty truth is that Fury handed in a positive drug test that showed usage of steroids. He admitted taking cocaine for his mental health issues and the British Boxing Board of Control took his license away. The hearings are nowhere near close to an end and Fury will certainly sit out for the rest of the year.

Joshua and Fury will eventually meet for sure, but that’s not until 2018 or worst case – 2019.

Sad but true.
