Promoter predicts when Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua will happen

"Regardless of the order - Fury vs Joshua is what the people want to see. Regardless of one guy getting out-boxed one night, it doesn't matter because they each have great fanbases and personalities."

Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua will fight each other 'at least once' according to Top Rank chief Todd DuBoef.

The British rivals were in negotiations to meet in a heavyweight battle for August, only for an American court to block it and force Fury to face Deontay Wilder in a trilogy bout.

Fury got the job done and delivered another KO win but Joshua was unable to retain his heavyweight titles, losing to Oleksandr Usyk in September.

It means a dream all-British clash between the pair is some way off with Fury set to take on Dillian Whyte next while Joshua triggered his rematch clause against Usyk.

"I would love to see Fury against Joshua, Usyk and Whyte. It's about what the people want to see," DuBoef told Sky Sports.

"Regardless of the order - Fury vs Joshua is what the people want to see. Regardless of one guy getting out-boxed one night, it doesn't matter because they each have great fanbases and personalities.

"We, as people involved, owe the people to serve what they want. I think Fury and Joshua will fight at least once, because the people want it."

"If Joshua and Usyk do the rematch and Usyk looks sensational again, then maybe the public will say, 'We want Fury vs Usyk'. Joshua says he had an off-night. He has to establish his dominance, like he did against Andy Ruiz Jr.

"Joshua has to take his career to that elevated state again by erasing his off-night. That is important. He is a great ambassador for the sport and a great champion. The more successful he and Fury are, the more successful boxing is."
