Undefeated boxing champion, Tyson Fury has been urged to skip a third fight with Deontay Wilder in a bid to set up a showdown with Anthony Joshua for the undisputed heavyweight titles.
This comes after the Gypsy King, 31, battered and bullied Wilder, 34, in Las Vegas to boss his way to winning the WBC belt.
Beaten champ Wilder now has 30 days to decide whether he wants a trilogy bout with Fury or walk away from their rivalry.
Promoter Eddie Hearn insisted there is no need for a third clash and told Fury to instead face AJ in a Battle of Britain for all the marbles this summer.
He tweeted: “AJ wants it bad.This fight is gonna and has to happen this year!
“No need for a third let’s go straight to it in the Summer! #undisputed.”
The Gypsy King has now earned himself the chance to fight Wilder for the greater of a 60/40 split having handed the Alabaman his first career loss.
But whether Wilder fancies an immediate crack at revenge, Fury – who became heavyweight champion for a second time – told his rival he will rise to world glory again, just like he has.
Fans online are demanding Fury and Joshua finally prove who is the division’s true No1.
And with Fury owning the WBC, lineal and Ring Magazine titles, and AJ the WBA, IBF and WBO champion, it is claimed there is no ‘A-side’ in the 50/50 fight.
Despite the call for Joshua and Fury to unify the titles, WBC mandatory challenger Dillan Whyte insists he should be next in line for the Gypsy King.
Whye told Hearn: “How about doing what’s right and forcing him to fight me first as the number 1 challenger
