Frank Warren has kept the door open for a potential mega fight between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua at some point this year.
The two premier British heavyweights were in well publicised negotiations for a fight late in 2022 but, as has been with all previous attempts to make a fight, these fell through.
After the same fate befell talks for a fight between Fury and Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight crown, talks about a meeting between ‘The Gyspy King’ and Joshua have inevitably raised their heads again.
Speaking on talkSPORT, Warren admitted that a fight with ‘AJ’ would be commercially bigger than the Usyk clash.
“I don’t know [about the fight], that’s up to Tyson. I have no problem with it, but it’s up to Tyson. We’ll obviously see what happens with Joshua next week. I think it’s a much bigger fight than Usyk.
But the fight I wanted to see is the Usyk fight, because the four belts will be on the line and it would cement Tyson as the best heavyweight of his generation, and no one could argue against that.”
Despite Fury and Usyk agreeing a 70/30 split, fans had always been apprehensive that the fight could be finalised in time for the touted date of April 29th.
Those concerns proved to be justified over the past week week, after representatives of both fighters announced the historic clash would not be happening and unified world champion Usyk would be looking to fulfil his mandatory obligations, potentially starting with WBA regular champion Daniel Dubois.
It remains unclear whether or not ‘The Gypsy King’ will defend his WBC world title on the 29th against a different opponent, with Warren even suggesting that Fury ‘may retire’.
