After his astonishing draw against Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury has set his sights on the very top of heavyweight boxing in the form of fellow British boxer Anthony Joshua.

Fury is still expected to rematch Wilder when the time is right, but that hasn't stopped him looking elsewhere as well.

After the bout on Saturday night, both fighters alluded to a rematch and both want a chance to settle the controversy of the real winner once and for all.

It is the infamous AJ, though, who Fury has since focussed on after leaving the ring with the Bronze Bomber.

It is nothing new for Fury, whose rivalry with Joshua extends back some amount of years.

The competition between these two British fighters is immense.

Both have publicly slammed one another much as they have praised each other and yet both evidently respect the other as a great boxer.

And with Joshua contacted to one more fight at Wembley without an opponent as it stands, Fury it seems is desperate to be the man to fill that vacant space.

Dillian Whyte is expected to serve as strong competition for the place if he can once again conquer Dereck Chisora, but the Gypsy King isn't going away quietly.

Fury, speaking on Good Morning Britain, focused on Joshua and claimed that the fight would be the greatest British fight in the entire history of the sport.

“We need to give Britain the biggest fight in British boxing history. That’s me and Joshua. The country wants it, I want it.”

Fury continued and criticised the hunger of Joshua and his team to give the country exactly what they want.

“The only people who don’t seem to want it is their team. Let’s get it on, let’s give the fans what they want and have a real battle.”

Fury sends his message to AJ at 11:25 in the above interview.

Joshua’s 23rd professional fight will take place next year on April 13.
