The two-time unified world heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua has accepted all the terms set by the current WBC champion Tyson Fury to set up an all-British heavyweight bout in December.

Anthony Joshua's management company 258MGT has offered confirmation after Tyson Fury proposed a  WBC heavyweight championship clash between the two British boxers.

In a statement on Tuesday, Joshua’s management company 258MGT asserted, "258 and Matchroom Boxing can confirm, on behalf of Anthony Joshua, that we accepted all terms presented to us by Fury’s team for a fight December 3 last Friday.  Due to the Queen’s passing, it was agreed to halt all communication. We are awaiting a response."

Earlier this month, a video was posted on social media where Fury offered Joshua, who  was beaten by Oleksandr Usyk last month, an opportunity to fight for the WBC belt. Fury said: "Anthony Joshua, I know you’ve just lost a fight to Usyk, and I know you’re belt-less at the moment, and I’d like to give you an opportunity to fight me for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world and the lineal championship in the next few months.

"If you’re interested I’ll send you the date over and we can rumble - a battle of Britain for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world."

Anthony Joshua replied to Fury's offer as he said, "Yea calm. I don’t do the online discussions just for clout, so if your really about it shout 258mgt. I’ll be ready in December. Khalas."
