Anger against Joshua as great as England’s 1966 World Cup final, Warren says

“It would be the largest sporting event in the UK since the 1966 World Cup”: Frank Warren’s claims a huge claim about possible fights between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua

Legendary boxing promoter Frank Warren feels a potential confrontation between newly crowned heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua would be England’s biggest sporting event since the 1966 World Cup Final.

The boxing world is now desperately looking for Fury to face rival Joshua for a long time in a fight against Britain, with every heavyweight title belt up for grabs.

Various obstacles stand in the way of a summer confrontation, including mandatory challengers and Deontay Wilder’s re-match clause, although Warren believes the magnitude of the potential battle will be seismic.

“That would have been the biggest sporting event in the UK since England won the World Cup. You wouldn’t get a ticket for it, “Warren said Sun after the victory of Fury in Las Vegas.

“The stumbling block is that he [Joshua] must fight against Pulev. The stumbling block for that fight is the old Waterford Crystal (pointing to the chin) and we’ll see what happens with it. If someone cuts it, he goes.

“If I were him, I wouldn’t fight Pulev, I’d even leave the belts to fight Tyson.

“He should not take the risk. I prefer that he does not take the risk, I prefer that Wilder does not take the rematch and let’s move on. “

Joshua has the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO titles, which means that a collision with Fury would put all existing heavyweight belts on the line.

His promoter Eddie Hearn said talk sport after the Fury victory: ‘What a time for British boxing. Having one heavyweight world champion would be great, but to have two with all the straps, we’ll never see it again.

“I said and I will make this clear, we must let this fight take place. We will never have the chance for two Britons to fight for an undisputedly tough world championship.

“I promise we will do everything we can to make this fight take place.”
