Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua to fight ‘at least once’ as it’s what fans want

Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua will face off in the ring at least once in the future as it's 'what the people want to see', according to Top Rank president Todd DuBoef.

The heavyweight superstars had been expected to come to blows earlier this year, only for the fight to fall apart at a late stage.

They were due to fight, but a deal collapsed after Fury was instead ordered into a trilogy bout against Deontay Wilder, which he subsequently won.

Fury is in talks to defend his WBC title against Dillian Whyte, while Joshua is set for a rematch with Oleksandr Usyk after relinquishing his IBF, WBA and WBO belts to the Ukrainian in September.

Even if Joshua is unable to regain his titles against Usyk, there's still hope of a British blockbuster between the Watford-born fighter and Fury.

DuBoef is Fury's promoter and believes a fight between the two domestic heavyweights is something all boxing fans want to see.

He told Sky Sports: "It's about what the people want to see.. Regardless of the order – Fury vs Joshua is what the people want to see.

"Regardless of one guy getting out-boxed one night, it doesn't matter because they each have great fanbases and personalities.

"We, as people involved, owe the people to serve what they want. I think Fury and Joshua will fight at least once, because the people want it.

"If Joshua and Usyk do the rematch and Usyk looks sensational again, then maybe the public will say, 'We want Fury vs Usyk'.

"Joshua says he had an off-night. He has to establish his dominance, like he did against Andy Ruiz Jr."

Reflecting on the positions the two men currently find themselves in, DuBoef added: "Joshua has to take his career to that elevated state again by erasing his off-night. That is important.

"He is a great ambassador for the sport and a great champion. The more successful he and Fury are, the more successful boxing is.

"The dynamic nature of uncertainty creates real interest. Tyson is in a wonderful position. He came in as an opponent for Deontay Wilder who was down and out.

"His personality has taken over the world."
