“We, as people involved, owe the people to serve what they want. I think Fury and Joshua will fight at least once because the people want it,” Top Rank Boxing president Todd DuBoef predicts a huge British battle.
Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua will face off in the most in-demand fight in the heavyweight division "because the people want it," said Todd DuBoef.
“Anthony Joshua must change his mindset,” says Dillian Whyte.
Dillian Whyte is in talks for a defense with WBC champion Tyson Fury, while Anthony Joshua is setting up a rematch with Oleksandr Usyk in an attempt to regain the WBA, WBO, and IBF titles in 2022.
The meeting of the British rivals in an undisputed world title clash dramatically fell apart this year, but Fury’s promotional team expected a big clash on the demand of the public.
“It’s about what the people want to see.”
“Regardless of the order – Fury vs Joshua is what the people want to see.”
“Regardless of one guy getting out-boxed one night, it doesn’t matter because they each have great fanbases and personalities.”
“If Joshua and Usyk do the rematch and Usyk looks sensational again, then maybe the public will say, ‘We want Fury vs Usyk’.
“Joshua says he had an off-night. He has to establish his dominance as he did against Andy Ruiz Jr.”
"Joshua has to take his career to that elevated state again by erasing his off-night. That is important.
"He is a great ambassador for the sport and a great champion. The more successful he and Fury are, the more successful boxing is.
"The dynamic nature of uncertainty creates real interest.
"Tyson is in a wonderful position. He came in as an opponent for Deontay Wilder who was down and out.
"His personality has taken over the world."
For the upcoming bouts, a huge name came up in the rival list. Usyk, Joshua, and Whyte are the top expected rivals to fight with Fury in 2022.
