British boxer Tyson Fury aims to have his hands on all four heavyweight belts before 2019 draws to a close as he eyes fights with Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua.

After his fight versus American Wilder ended in a controversial draw back in December, the two fighters' respective teams are now in talks to settle the battle with a rematch in 2019.

Fury will be hoping that claiming the WBC belt from Wilder would then set him on an unmissable path straight to Joshua.

Fellow British fighter Joshua holds the other three belts in the division and sits closely behind Wilder on Fury's list of targets for 2019.

When asked about what the future holds for Fury, promoter Frank Warren was quoted as saying: "He may not have the belts, but he is top of the charts again now and we are working on his rematch with Wilder currently.

"After that he will want Anthony Joshua and there is no reason from our side why this shouldn’t become a reality."

The prospect of arranging both fights in a year will rely on how the scheduling works out. 

Fury would most likely target a fight with Joshua in April at Wembley, but sadly for the fans of boxing who want to see that fight happen, 'AJ' reportedly has his mind on a rematch of his own.

News from AJ's camp seems to be pointing towards another bout with Dillian Whyte after their brutal fight for the British heavyweight title in 2015.


Despite this rumour, Whyte claims that Joshua has instead began preparation for a first fight in America against Jarrell Miller in New York.

It appears that any potential rematch for Fury with Wilder would also be after summer as Wilder looks to fight a title defence against someone else before returning to the ring with the tough-talking Brit.

Barring an upset, Fury looks likely to face both the champions at some point, and for boxing fans' sake, let's hope it's soon.

It doesn't matter when it happens, we just all want it to happen.
