"I hope you mean it because I'd love to have you in training camp. Thanks very much and well done in your last fight, congratulations," Fury said.

In Joshua's initial request, he told Sky Sports: "Fury if you need me, if you need me for sparring – we’re going to fight one day, I’ve sparred Tyson Fury when we were kids anyway - I’ll go out to America to spar Tyson Fury to get him ready for this Wilder fight

"I would like that fight because I think Fury would fight me faster than Wilder would."

Joshua must agree fights with IBF challenger Kubrat Pulev and WBO contender Oleksandr Usyk by January 2020 or risk giving up two of his leather straps.
