WBA, WBO, IBO and IBF champion Oleksandr Usyk has disclosed that he is ready to assist Anthony Joshua in an all-British heavyweight fight with Tyson Fury.
Usyk defeated Joshua in their rematch by split decision, but Fury offered to fight the former two-time world champion placing his WBC title on the line.
The potential bout between Joshua and Fury is expected to take place in Britain in December, and Usyk has offered to assist AJ in the build-up.
“If he needs my help, I will go to his camp and help him. He is not 40 years old, he is 33, so he should keep working.
“Anthony, don’t stop. I understand that he wanted to win against me, but Anthony can’t give up. He must go forward.”
Fury was mocked for ‘running’ away from an undisputed heavyweight clash with Usyk by the latter’s manager, Egis Klimas.

Meanwhile, boxing journalist Gareth Davies has warned Anthony Joshua not to attempt a fight against WBC heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury before the end of the year.
Joshua, who lost his rematch to Ukraine’s Oleksandr Usyk, has accepted Fury’s ‘battle of Britain’ challenge for the WBC title.
