Tyson Fury has revealed plans to fight two-time heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, while naming his three dream fights before drawing the curtain off on his illustrious career in boxing.

The Brit will face Bronze Bomber in a much anticipated heavyweight showdown that has been officially scheduled for February 22, 2020, in Las Vegas.

Speaking ahead of the rematch at the iconic MGM Grand Garden Arena in the United States, the Gypsy King said he will aim for a unification all-British fight against the Nigerian-born pugilist.

Fury also said he would want to do a sign off rematch fight with fellow Brit Dereck Chisora for a third time, saying the fight will hold at Manchester United home ground Old Trafford.

The 31-year-old Brit, while expressing confidence over knock-out defeat of the Bronze Bomber, also hinted at a potential switch to wrestling having made a victorious debut.

"I'm going to knock Wilder out, and he's not going to want a rematch, I'm going to fight Joshua, I'm going to beat him too, and then I've always said to my old pal Dereck Chisora I'd have a farewell fight with him.

"Maybe we can get the Old Trafford fight with old Del Boy. And then it's curtains on a fantastic career," the Gypson King.

Fury made his debut in heavyweight boxing division in 2008 and has since made it into the ring 30 times including the bout with Deontay Wilder which ended in a draw.

Wilder and Fury had their first fight in December 2018 and it resulted into a controversial split, with both sides emerging winners in grand style.

The American heavyweight champ had landed a brutal knockout-bound punch on Tyson Fury but the Brit got his moves back to give Wilder some chases inside the ring.

Wilder later went to defend his WBC title against Cuban fighter Luiz Ortiz in December which he won through another knockout.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Tyson Fury might have sought the wrath of boxing fraternity after his controversial naming of his rival Deontay Wilder as 'bigger puncher' than boxing legend Mike Tyson.

Going by statistics, Mike Tyson, the ''baddest man on earth,'' won 44 of his 58 fights by knockout when he was in his prime. Wilder, in contrast, coasted to 41 knockout victories in his 43 fight.
