Bookmakers can see Fury-Joshua in 2018

Bookmakers believe that there is a good chance of former heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury returning to the ring and facing Anthony Joshua.

Fury has not fought for nearly two years following his shock win over Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf in November 2015.

The 29-year-old later postponed two rematches with Klitschko and has since lost his boxing licence after he admitted struggling with depression and taking drugs because of that.

He is now looking to get his career back on track and has a hearing date with the British Boxing Board of Control

Fury said: “I say we get this fight on like Donkey Kong. [Let’s] make it the biggest fight in British boxing history.

This is it, it does not get any bigger than this. You’ve got the two unbeaten heavyweights, both over 6ft 6in, both 18 stone-odd, both unbeaten. One lineal champion of the world, one unified champion of the world.

“Has this ever happened before with both unbeaten? OMG I am so excited, I hope you guys are.”

Joshua said: “It’s Anthony Joshua versus the world right now, I have got to fight them all.

“Eddie [Hearn] is right, as a promoter it works well for him, it works well for me and I think it works well for people who want to watch me and Tyson Fury get it on.

“I wish him the best of luck with what he’s going through because we need to see him back in the ring.”

“Eddie has been on the phone to Tyson, trying to make things happen and support his cause. This is a fight, down the line, that might happen.

“At the minute, the fighters who are closer on a championship level are the likes of Joseph Parker and Deontay Wilder.”

Bookmakers now believe that a fight between the pair is possible and he is rated at 4/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s the heavyweight bout everyone wants to see and recent reports of a potential Fury comeback have sparked our traders into action. At 4/1, don’t be surprised to see this pair clash in 2018.”
