Joshua has now responded by telling Pep Talk UK: “You’ll never let a location and stuff get in the way of a mega fight.
“But the reason why I always said it’ll be good if Fury won [against Deontay Wilder] is because I thought we’ll do the fight here [in the UK].
“But if it’s in America then it makes sense for Wilder to win for me and then go [there].
“It’s bigger – American vs Brit than Brit vs Brit in America.
“If Fury would like the fight in Vegas, we’d have to talk about that. But I think, for me personally, it makes more sense having it in London or Manchester.”
Fury previously told the Ak and Barak Show on Sirius XM: “Listen, that fight happens in Las Vegas and Las Vegas alone.
“It’d be MGM Grand Garden Arena live from Las Vegas, USA.
“I’m the one who’s come to America and conquered America.
“Joshua came over and got knocked out by a little fat man.”
