Anthony Joshua set to avoid Tyson Fury 9 July date clash

Anthony Joshua says he is “unlikely” to fight on 9 July after fellow British world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury announced he was going to have a bout on that date.

Joshua won the IBF crown by beating Charles Martin on Saturday.

He told BBC Radio 5 live he is set to change his schedule to avoid clashing with WBA and WBO champion Fury’s rematch with Wladimir Klitschko in Manchester.
