Tyson Fury wants Anthony Joshua-Charles Martin victor straight after his Wladimir Klitschko rematch, writes John Dennen

TYSON FURY has outlined his plans for world domination. Fury toppled Wladimir Klitschko to take over the heavyweight division in November. Klitschko has exercised his option for a rematch and that is currently under negotiation (click HERE for the latest on that front).

Once Fury has fulfilled that obligation, assuming he defends his WBA and WBO heavyweight belts he then wants to hoover up the remaining world titles in the division. Anthony Joshua challenges IBF champion Charles Martin on April 9 and Deontay Wilder is set to put the WBC title on the line against Alexander Povetkin later this year.

Fury posted on social media, saying, “My next fights; 1. Wlad, 2. winner of Joshua-Martin, 3. winner of Wilder-Povetkin.”

He’s keen to go straight from boxing Klitschko into a possible fight with Anthony Joshua. “That’s the biggest British fight ever right there,” Fury added, “but he must pass Martin first.”

Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn sounds eager to Fury up on that offer. He replied to Tyson saying, “Yep, tough fight but he will be ready. Good luck in yours then we get it made.”
