Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua will fight each other, says AJ’s trainer Rob McCracken. Fury is coming off a historic seventh-round TKO win over Deontay Wilder.
The Gypsy King knocked Wilder down twice en route to his victory, for which he won the WBC world title and Ring Magazine belt.
The win has ignited talk that Fury could fight Anthony Joshua for all the belts at some point later this year.
Wilder is likely, however, to take activate his rematch clause with Fury, and a third bout could take place in the summer in Las Vegas again.
But Joshua’s long-time trainer McCracken is adamant his man will fight Fury.
“It has to happen,” McCracken told Sky Sports news.
“It will be fantastic when they box each other – and they will do, down the line.
