Joshua responded after Fury called him out on social media about the potential fight

Joshua told Fury to contact his management as he isn’t interested in clout chasing on social media. 

Fury called out Joshua over a potential fight after Oleksandr Usyk expressed doubts about whether he will fight this year.

Speaking at the weekend, Fury confirmed that he will defend his WBC belt regardless of Usyk’s availability. 

Usyk beat Joshua last month. However, the Ukrainian revealed he won’t be fighting this year due to injuries sustained against Joshua, and to spend time with his family having enlisted with the Kyiv Territorial Defence earlier this year following the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

‘I think you’ve all heard that I’m going to be fighting soon, within the next few months,’ Fury said in a video posted across his social media channels.

‘I think that before I announce an opponent that I need to do this, just in case.

‘Anthony Joshua, I know you’ve just lost a fight to Usyk; you’re beltless at the moment. I’d like to give you an opportunity to fight me for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world, and the lineal championship, in the next few months.

‘You’re coming off a 12-round fight so you’re match fit, you’re ready. I’m giving you a few months’ notice. If you’re interested, I’ll send you the date over, and we can rumble. A battle of Britain for the heavyweight championship of the world.

‘Let me know if you’re interested. If not, I will select another opponent.’

Fury recently stated that he will be back fighting again ‘very soon’ as he looks to defend his WBC belt

Fury, whose retirement is set to be shortlived, recently said that he will be fighting again ‘very soon’.

He said: ‘I will be fighting very soon. I don’t know who against, we are still looking for an opponent.

‘I will fight in the next few months here in the UK. Usyk will not be ready, he does not want to fight. I will fight whoever is available.

‘Whoever Frank Warren gets for me, that is who I will be defending my WBC belt against.’
