Tyson Fury reveals Anthony Joshua was only fight to spark retirement U-turn as he ‘owed fans moment of sporting history’

TYSON FURY has revealed that the prospect of fighting Anthony Joshua helped to spark his boxing return.

The Gypsy King retired after knocking out Dillian Whyte in April this year.

Tyson Fury wants to give fans a huge fight

Fury believes a fight with Anthony Joshua would achieve this

Fury’s autobiography, Gloves Off, comes out on November 10

Fury then made a U-turn on the decision and held discussions with Joshua to fight on December 3.

However, the talks broke down after Joshua failed to meet Fury’s deadline to sign the contract.

Instead, Derek Chisora has been drafted in to complete a trilogy, with Fury emerging the victor of the previous two fights in 2011 and 2014.

But Fury is desperate to give fans a show, which he believes the “Battle of Britain” bout with AJ would achieve.

Speaking in his autobiography, Gloves Off, Fury revealed: “The other fight I’ve been interested in is a showdown to stop the nation in its tracks.

“A match with Anthony Joshua would fall into this category, and in September 2022, I even offered to battle him in the UK with a 60-40 split in earnings.

“I wanted it to be a moment in sporting history, a fight for Britain.

“But so far we haven’t been able to make it happen.

“Now I’m due to fight Derek Chisora on December 3 — having already beaten him twice.”

Fury currently holds the WBC heavyweight title but could be in line for a chance to face Oleksandr Usyk – the holder of the WBO, WBA, IBO and IBF titles.

And should the pair fight one another then it would make for a never-seen-before fight with all four belts on the line for the first time in the four-belt era.

Meanwhile, Joshua is set to square up against Whyte early next year.

What is Boxing?

Boxing is a sport in which two people fight to knock one another out. They do this by hitting each other in the head and face. The object of boxing is to hit an opponent as hard as possible without hurting yourself. This can only happen if both boxers are able to throw heavy punches. They must also be able to coordinate their hand-eye movements.

How does a beginner box at home?

Boxing is one of the oldest sports known to man. Boxing was developed in ancient times to train warriors for fighting against foes. Today, boxing is still widely practiced around the world. Boxing is not something you need to do in a gym. To box, all you need are a pair gloves and punching bags.

You can also find local amateur boxing clubs where you can join and get trained by professional coaches. You’ll be ready for tournaments once you have mastered basic combinations and punches.
