Joshua hopes to fight Fury in 2018

Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko heavyweight boxing match

He became the UK's latest world heavyweight unified champion.

Unbeaten boxer Tyson Fury is eager to land a comeback bout against IBF, WBA, and IBO world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

It would seem like it's unification, lucrative rematch or bust for Joshua as there's been little to no mention of the mandatory challengers he now has waiting in line.

Yet while Murray might remain sanguine over his start to 2017, which has so far delivered a modest win-loss record of 15-5, he admitted that his attempt to watch the Joshua-Klitschko fight on Saturday night had left him shaking with nerves.

That's a description that certainly applies to Fury and even although he doesn't have a title to put on the line Joshua can see the appeal for fight fans.

Olympic gold medalist Anthony Joshua recently won the biggest fight of his professional boxing career after he defeated Wladimir Klitschko via a technical knockout in the eleventh round.

"I wonder what people would be saying today if Klitschko had done him in the sixth".

"I met him [Joshua] for the first time at the Olympics in 2012", Murray added.

"Look, it's simple. Eddie will protect his cash cow".

"There is no one that wants to see him back more than me, but it is miles away".

"We are desperate for that fight because AJ thinks he wins comfortably, it is a great fight and it is the biggest fight out there", said Hearn.

'AJ did really well to come back but I am not 41 or getting old. "If they wouldn't have stopped it he was gassed out again - plain and simple".

When discussing a potential return with Joshua, Klitschko - whose points defeat by Fury in 2015 means he has lost twice in succession - insisted he had a rematch clause he could choose to exercise.

"I congratulate the young man for courage but I'm next and that is that", Ortiz continued.

"We all saw [his career] had a life and death situation against Klitschko, but Klitschko couldn't land a glove on me".

"It's my time and I want my WBA belt so yeah I'm calling Joshua out". That depends on a successful defence in October or November.
