A fight between two British fighters may not happen if Tyson Fury does not win the rematch between Deontay Wilder later this year.
Fury is in advanced talks to have a rematch with Wilder in April 2019. Both boxers fought to a draw last month in LA in what was one of the most memorable fights of the year for 2018.
Las Vegas and New York in the US so far are the leading locations thought to be in contention to land the fight this year. Fury’s promoter has also suggested that the rematch should happen in the UK with Manchester United’s Old Trafford the leading ground to host the rematch.
With 2019 now in full swing Fury has had some early training footage show that he is hungrier than ever to prove that he is the best heavyweight boxer in the world. it was a memorable year in 2018 for Fury where he came back from several challenges outside the ring
Fury wanted a showdown with British boxer Anthony Joshua but it may happen at any point soon as he said to BT Sport.
Fury vs Joshua would be the biggest domestic clash this century, while a fight with Wilder would offer AJ the chance to become the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis.
'It is my ambition to unify all the belts but if Joshua won't do it I'm very happy to fight Fury again,' Wilder said.
Ultimately if the rematch with Wilder happens the winner of that bout will be positioned to take on Joshua in a huge unification fight before the year is out.
But after Fury so nearly defied the odds with a stunning display more than a three year abcens from the ring after his last world title fight, who would be foolish enough to try and predict what comes next?
