Tyson Fury accept Anthony jushua’s offer

Offer accepted. The British heavyweight boxing duo of Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury will be sparring partners in the run-up to the latter’s rematch with American WBC challenger, Deontay Wilder for their bout scheduled for February next year in Las Vegas.

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.

Basic education minister Angie Motshekga said at the time that she was horrified.

“When giving judgment, the judge emphasised that this sentence will send a strong message to other young people that once you commit crime you will be punished and account for your crimes,” said police spokesperson WO Mosimaneotsile Letsapa.

Const Boitumelo Motsetse, the investigating officer, was happy to see justice served.

The cluster commander of John Taolo Gaetsewe, Maj-Gen Johan Bean, applauded Motsetse for his dedication on the case and complimented community members who were witnesses in the case.
