Regardless of where you rank them, Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder are the top three Heavyweights in the world at the moment.
Anthony Joshua is riding high after reclaiming his titles via unanimous decision against Andy Ruiz a couple of weeks ago.
Wilder is also riding high after his recent highlight-reel knockout victory over former Heavyweight boogeyman, Luis “King Kong” Ortiz.
Fury, who looked less-than-stellar in his last outing against Otto Wallin, is trying to put that fight behind him and prepare for Wilder alongside a new (or old, depending how you look at it) training crew led by Javan “Sugar” Hill.
Wilder and Fury’s highly-anticipated rematch will take place February 22, 2020 with a victory giving either man an easy claim to the Heavyweight throne.
Joshua has most of the titles, Wilder has the longest reign and Fury owns the Lineal title (the man who beat the man).
With such a hotly-contested race to the top of the division, it is rather surprising that two of these giants have agreed to spar together.
That’s right, Anthony Joshua recently extended an offer to help Fury prepare for his second crack at Wilder.
“I think honestly he might beat Wilder next time,” said Joshua to Sky Sports News. “I think Fury would fight me quicker than Wilder would, so, if that’s the case, I want him to win. Imagine that fight on British soil. If Tyson needs me, I’ll go out and spar with him to get him ready for Wilder.”
Fury wasted no time in responding to Joshua via Instagram, stating that he’d love to have Joshua train with him.
“I would love to have you in camp,” said Fury. “Really, really love to have you in camp, work out for this fight and give Deontay Wilder a proper beating. I hope you meant it, because I’d love to have you in training camp with me.”
If Joshua and Fury work together in training, will it give the “Gypsy King” an advantage headed into his rematch with the “Bronze Bomber?”
