Anthony Joshua ‘has STOPPED talks with Deontay Wilder to finally seal fight against Tyson Fury in Africa’

Sporting Showdown

In a surprising turn of events, Anthony Joshua has reportedly put a pause on negotiations with Deontay Wilder in order to pursue a fight with Tyson Fury. The highly anticipated bout between Joshua and Wilder was slated to take place in Saudi Arabia, but it seems that plans have taken a major detour.

Fury Fever

British boxer Tony Bellew, who has a close relationship with Joshua, has revealed that talks with Wilder's camp have halted, and the focus has shifted towards a potential rematch with Fury. Bellew, who was also promoted by Eddie Hearn, hinted at the possibility of the fight taking place in Africa, drawing comparisons to the historic 'Rumble in the Jungle' held in Zaire in 1974.

Africa Calling

Should the fight between Joshua and Fury materialize, it would be a monumental event, adding to the legacy of heavyweight boxing in Africa. While no concrete details have been confirmed, fans are eagerly awaiting further developments regarding this potential clash.

Busy Schedule

Meanwhile, Tyson Fury has his own challenges ahead, as he is set to face former UFC champion Francis Ngannou in a highly anticipated crossover match in Saudi Arabia on October 28. This comes after talks of a title unification bout between Fury and Oleksandr Usyk fell through, although there remains hope that the fight can be revisited in the future.

Keeping Options Open

Anthony Joshua recently secured a victory against Robert Helenius and wasted no time in calling out Deontay Wilder. However, promoter Eddie Hearn acknowledges that if Wilder is not ready for a fight by the new year, Joshua may consider another bout in December. Talks are ongoing, and a January fight is still the goal, but Joshua remains open to the idea of fighting in December should the circumstances require it.

With the boxing world buzzing about the potential clash between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, fans eagerly await further updates on what could be a monumental showdown.
