Tyson Fury is targeting two major fights in 2019 against heavyweight champions Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua, according to Frank Warren.

Fury's team are in talks with Wilder’s team about their rematch and Warren is confident a deal with Wilder can be done.

British fight fans want to see Fury take on Joshua, and Warren confirmed Joshua was second on the hit-list.

‘He may not have the belts, but he is top of the charts again now and we are working on his rematch with Wilder currently,’ Warren said.

‘After that he will want Anthony Joshua and there is no reason from our side why this shouldn’t become a reality.’

He looks in great nick.

Maybe the best shape he has EVER entered a camp, as long as be maintains it.

If Fury beats Wilder (again*) it will be interesting to see how keen Joshua is.

I suspect Joshua will only fight twice this year - probably Miller followed by Whyte.

From a completely 'Fury fanboy' point of view, if Fury beats Wilder, I don't mind him taking a fight before Joshua in 2020.

From an AJ point of view, he wants to pick over the leftovers from a couple of Wilder Fury 'wars' I reckon.

Hearn will probably use the 'convenience' of Whyte being a mandatory to go with Joshua-Whyte late this year - thus avoiding the winner of Fury-Joshua II in 2019.

The thing is of course, that the winner of Fury-Joshua II represents a unification fight for Joshua and if he wanted it badly enough it could get made ahead of a mandatory with Whyte.

Yeah, nobody in that team is in any rush.

Round and about
Offering Fury around 25-30% with no provision for BT TV just ain't gonna fly.
60-40 is closer to the reality of what's on the table.

No fanboi but AJ is A side. He holds the belts, has the financial clout, and unlike the others his record's intact..

Hearn & Joshua are like a couple of self important ladies aren't they,
Hearn continues to claim it is all about the money for people wanting to fight Joshua. But the public have wised up that Hearn only needs to put 50% on the table and Wilder and Fury would take the fight.

Fury beats Joshua and Wilder poses a sizeable threat. Far safer for Hearn to talk a big game, offer them unders and fight Whyte, Miller and the other second stringers.
