A possible meeting between Britain’s two most high-profile heavyweights has been a topic of conversation for years.

Tyson Fury opened up on a possible heavyweight title fight with British rival Anthony Joshua during the latest leg of his nationwide tour in Bristol, as shown in the video above taken by Tim Shires.

The reigning WBC World Heavyweight champion retained his title with an impressive sixth round stoppage of Dillian Whyte at Wembley in April and continued a remarkable comeback from his battle with mental health.

It is now six years since Fury vacated the WBA, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles and took a two-year break from the ring to focus on his mental health.

However, his came back to action in spectacular fashion with a controversial draw against WBC title holder Deontay Wilder in December 2018 before dominating the champion to take his belt in the rematch just under a year later.

Another impressive display against Wilder saw Fury take the honours in the final bout of a three-match trilogy between the duo before he maintained his unbeaten 33-fight record against Whyte earlier this year.

But no matter what Fury has acheived, a possible meeting with Joshua has dominated the headlines for several years without ever really coming close to fruition.

An eagerly anticipated clash between to two Brits could have been for the right to become boxing’s latest undisputed heavyweight champion had Joshua not lost his WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO heavyweight titles to Oleksandr Usyk in September last year.

A rematch is set to take place next month and that could finally set up a Fury v Joshua clash if the latter can reclaim his belts against the powerful Ukrainian.

Fury is watching on with interest and set out the terms for his meeting with Joshua to finally take place during the event in Bristol.
