After winning back three of his major world titles, unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has been in such a great mood that all he wants to do is help others — starting with Tyson Fury.

Fury is currently scheduled to take on Deontay Wilder on Feb. 22, 2020, at a site to be determined, and Joshua says he’s willing to spar with Fury in order to prepare him to beat Wilder in the rematch. Joshua would prefer to see Fury beat Wilder as he believes Fury is more likely to agree to fight him than Wilder.

“I think Tyson Fury would fight me quicker than Wilder would. If that’s the case, I want Fury to win, because I just want to fight. To have that fight here on British soil? Man, can you imagine that?

“Fury, if you need me for sparring, we’re going to fight one day. I’ve sparred Tyson Fury when we were kids anyway. I would go out to America and spar Tyson Fury and get him ready for this Wilder fight.”

Fury has recently made changes in his team, splitting with trainer Ben Davison in favor of “Sugar” Hill out of the legendary Kronk Gym. It’s doubtful that Fury would actually take up Joshua on his sparring offer, but it’s nice to see the champ spreading some holiday cheer with his compatriot.
