The former heavyweight champion is eyeing a clash with the WBC champion and has offered to go to America and do it
Tyson Fury has vowed to fight Deontay Wilder in his home country after beating Francesco Pianeta.
The former heavyweight champion is on the comeback trail after over two years out of the sport and will meet the Italian at Windsor Park on August 12.
A drugs ban and personal issues forced the 6”9 bruiser to relinquish his belts, but, after stopping Sefer Seferi back in June, Fury is targeting much bigger fish.
After teasing a fight against WBC champion Deontay Wilder earlier in the week, the 29-year-old has gone one better and declared his intentions to fight the Alabama-native in his home country.
It would be a familiar feeling for the outspoken boxer, who shocked the world in 2015 by defeating Wladimir Klitschko in Germany.
But for Fury, upsetting the odds is what motivates him.
“I’ll fight Deontay Wilder in America, I’ll fight Anthony Joshua in London,” he declared.
“I’m not afraid of going abroad, I’ve been abroad on the road before on the road – it is what it is.
“It takes someone like me to go over and beat someone up doesn’t it? Because at the minute, the Americans are showing the Brits up rotten.
“The Brits are running away scared and there’s only me who is saying; ‘Right, I’ll have to fight him!’.
“If I’m ready, I’m ready and if I’m not, I’m not.”
After negotiations between an inter-continental undisputed heavyweight title fight fell through between Wilder and Anthony Joshua, accusations flew between both parties.
While it was never ascertained just who was behind the super-fight falling through, the fact remains the duo are still set on a collision course.
But British rival Fury is getting impatient and is moe than happy to skip the queue to get his hands on his old American foe
He continued: “I can’t have him calling us over here ‘**********’ and everybody in America saying: ‘Them British guys don’t really fight blah, blah, blah.’
“I’ll go over to America and I’ll fight him and I’ll knock him spark out, can’t say any fairer than that.
