Nigerian-British boxer Anthony Joshua insists he is willing to fight either Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury next year as he looks to unify the heavyweight division.

Wilder retained his WBC belt with a controversial split decision draw against Fury last weekend and the American’s team will now discuss options for his next fight.

Wilder’s co-manager Shelly Finkel confirmed The Bronze Bomber is “very interested” in a unification fight with Joshua, and the WBA ‘super’, IBF and WBO champion welcomed the challenge in a fiery statement on Twitter.

Responding to Finkel’s comments as reported by Sky Sports, Joshua wrote: “What took this fool so long? Like we ain’t been interested?!! Anyway well done Fury!

“They wanted to get you because they assumed you was finished!! I’ll give you a fair one when you’re ready! Either one of you!”
