London, Sept 18 (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 18th Sep, 2021 ) :Anthony Joshua says the mouthwatering heavyweight boxing bout with fellow Briton Tyson Fury will happen preferably in Britain before he hangs up his gloves.
Talks of a unification 'superfight', which went on for months, appeared to be on the brink of ending in an agreement earlier this year only for a United States arbitrator to rule Fury had to fight Deontay Wilder for a third time.
Joshua is set to face World Boxing Organization (WBO) mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk in London next Saturday, with a crowd of some 60,000 expected at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the home of the Premier League club.
"It will happen," the 31-year-old told the Daily Mail.
"We saw it with Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao (not fighting until they were beyond their primes) but that was a superstar fight.
"Me and Fury is streets, two warriors, two fighters who have come from the amateur system in the UK, and have taken the world by storm. We'll get it on in Britain." Joshua had spoken earlier in the week of how his career would be incomplete without fighting Fury.
