This was after Joshua, who on December 7 reclaimed his previously lost titles to Mexican-American fighter, Andy Ruiz Jr. extended an offer to be Fury’s sparring partner. Joshua made the offer as he said the 31-year-old would be more likely to agree to fight him at a later date.

“I think, honestly, he might beat Wilder next time,” Joshua told Sky Sports News. “I think Fury would fight me quicker than Wilder would. So, if that’s the case, I want him to win. Imagine that fight on British soil? If Tyson needs me, I’ll go out and spar with him to get him ready for Wilder,” Joshua added.

After recently splitting with trainer Ben Davison and subsequently teaming up with Javan ‘Sugar’ Hill earlier this month, Fury has confirmed he will be taking up the offer having fought to a draw in his previous bout with Wilder, which saw the American retain his title.

“I would love to have you in camp, work out for this fight, and give Deontay Wilder a proper beating,” Fury posted on his Instagram on Tuesday. “I hope you mean it, as I’d love to have you in training camp with me. When I do beat Wilder I will fight you AJ, no problem.”

For the first title defence of Joshua’s second stint as world champion, he is likely to face unbeaten Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk, the WBO’s mandatory challenger, or Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev, the mandatory challenger for the IBF.

TROUBLE-as Gov wike of Rivers state Demolish Central mosque in the state.

The Governor of Rivers state has destroyed the multi-million naira Trans Amadi Central Mosque in Port Harcourt Rivers state.

POLITICS NIGERIA learned that the mosque was reportedly destroyed on August 20 by State government officials, citing non-compliance despite the existence of Rivers State approved building plan.

Leaders of the Muslim community in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, have since condemned the demolition of the mosque, as they called on President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Nyesom Wike and members of the National Assembly to intercede on behalf of the over 10,000 worshippers.

Appealing to Governor Wike, Haroon Muhammed, an Imam said: “This is the most populated mosque. Muslims all over the world can see what has happened to a mosque that is duly approved by the state government. We have been harassed three times now – once on the 29th of last month, then on August 16 and 20 without any formal notice.

“Today, we are denied a place of worship. We don’t want to foment any trouble with government officials. We want the world to help us beg the governor for us to have a place of worship because this central mosque is the only one serving the whole of Trans-Amadi. Members of the armed forces, the agencies, the police, army, oil company workers, and government workers, who are Muslims, worship in this place.”
