Tyson Fury has offered Anthony Joshua the opportunity to fight for his WBC title in a blockbuster British heavyweight title fight before the end of the year.
Fury announced his retirement from boxing after defeating Dillian Whyte in April, but he is now looking for a high-profile opponent after rival champion Oleksandr Usyk stated he will not fight again until 2023.
He appeared to confirm his decision to reverse it again in a video posted on social media on Monday.
“You’ve all heard that I’m going to fight in the next few months, and before I announce an opponent, I need to do this just in case,” Fury explained.
“Anthony Joshua, I know you just lost to Usyk, and I know you’re currently belt-less, but I’d like to give you the opportunity to fight me for the WBC heavyweight world championship and the lineal championship in the coming months.
“You just finished a 12-round fight, so you’re match fit and ready, and I’m giving you a few months’ notice.
“If you’re interested, I’ll send you the date and we can rumble for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world. Please let me know if you are interested. If not, I’ll choose another opponent.”
On Twitter, Joshua responded by telling Fury to contact his management team.
“I don’t do online discussions for clout,” Joshua wrote, before adding, “I’ll be ready in December.”
