The boxing fights we want in 2019: Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury

Sure, Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder for all the marbles has to happen.

And yes, we all want to see if Tyson Fury can finish what he started against Wilder a few weeks ago.

But in Britain, there is no bigger fight right now than Joshua vs Fury.

Admittedly, it’s almost certainly not going to happen this year unless the latter suddently gives up his second shot at Wilder and accepts Joshua’s demnds for an April 13 showdown at Wembley.

And there is next to no chance of Fury lining promoter Eddie Hearn’ pockets without getting what he sees as a fair deal in return.

If Fury were to beat Wilder – officiallly this time – he would be ordered to defend his title against Dominic Breazeale.

Only if he squeezed that in quickly would he then have time to face Joshua at Wembley or Cardiff later in the year.

But given he has only fought three times in as many years, that seems unlikely.

Instead he will fight Wilder in the spring or summer – probably in Las Vegas – while Joshua takes on Dillian Whyte for a second time at the national stadium.

Assuming he wins, Joshua would then likely face American Jarrell Miller in New York in September while Fury faces his mandatory.

And then, if they both keep winning, they can finally touch gloves at Wembley in 2020.

Well, we can dream…
