Tyson Fury called out for February bout by undefeated British heavyweight rival

Tyson Fury has been challenge to a fight by undefeated star and fellow Brit Joe Joyce.

Tyson Fury has been challenged by undefeated boxer Joe Joyce. The Olympic silver medallist wants to tussle with the Gypsy King in February, after defeating Daniel Dubois and Carlos Takam in his last two fights.

The 36-year-old has the utmost respect for Fury and he posted a photo on Instagram of the pair following a training session.

Joyce has yet to lose a fight and is keen to test himself against the WBC heavyweight champion, who also has an unblemished record.

He wrote: “I have got lots of respect for @gypsyking101 as a friend and as a fighter, but my schedule is free in February #letsdothis #WBO1 #WBC2 #THEJUGGERNAUT.”

Asked by Sky Sports about the possibility of Fury fighting Joyce, promoter Frank Warren said: “I was talking to Tyson about him. Tyson said that he’s the best one out there.

“That’s what Tyson’s opinion was. Can he go all the way? Yes he can. He’s got a good ticker, a big heart.

“He’s strong, he walks forwards, he is the ‘Juggernaut’. Whoever he’s in there with, you know they will have a problem getting rid of him.

“He’s a tough guy. He can fight a bit. He can punch.”

Joyce may have to wait longer for a chance to fight the 33-year-old, as Fury is not expected to return to the ring until March.

Furthermore, he is set to face a frustrating wait for confirmation of his mandatory fight against Dillian Whyte as the WBC failed to order the fight.

Whyte was scheduled to fight Otto Wallin on October 30 – but the bout was cancelled when the Brit was forced to withdraw with a shoulder injury.
