Tyson Fury holds talks with Anthony Joshua over September fight as he looks to secure biggest bout in British boxing
TYSON FURY has ordered a September showdown with Anthony Joshua as he bids to put on the biggest fight in British boxing at Wembley.
The 34-year-old WBC Gypsy King was Down Under last week, calling on earners with Aussie unknowns Demsey McKean and Jai Opetaia.

And now his Queensberry promoters have once again reached out to AJ to see if he can be tempted into the biggest fight in British boxing.
The pair failed to secure a December fight last year and Fury has pulled out of undisputed deciders with Oleksandr Usyk in Saudi Arabia and at Wembley.
But the undefeated 6ft 9in Morecambe mastermind has been out of action since December and needs a payday.
He confirmed he had sent a draft contract to AJ’s camp on his Instagram.
Tyson wrote: “A few days ago i sent a draft contract to @anthonyjoshua for a fight in September @wembleystadium.
“It’s a fight that everyone wants to see including myself. Come of AJ lets give the world what they want to see. This time im not gonna make a million vids & keep putting pressure on. the ball is now on your side..”
US promoter Bob Arum admitted this week, while in Belfast to promote another show, that the giant showman was impossible to guide or control.
But now the chance of an overdue Fury vs AJ spectacular has been revisited, with Fury matchmaker George Warren contacting AJ man Eddie Hearn to briefly discuss a monumental bout.
Fury was tipped to fight Usyk for the four-belt decider in Saudi Arabia in December – with AJ and Deontay Wilder to meet in a fantasy four-man spectacle the same night.
That dream appears to be fading so Fury has told his team to explore the biggest money options and AJ remains the most golden goose in the game.
But fans are unlikely to get excited after so many dull disappointments.
