A year ago, Tyson Fury v Anthony Joshua was the super-fight British fans, and arguably the whole of the boxing world, longed for An all-British meeting for all four major heavyweight belts between two world champions with opposing personalities who cross over to the mainstream was in touching distance The stage was set, finer details agreed, with Saudi Arabia set to host the fight in August 2021 But Fury was instead ordered by an arbitration hearing to face Deontay Wilder in a trilogy bout. As their careers then took separate paths, it seemed the Fury-Joshua – or Joshua-Fury depending on your allegiances – ship had sailed Joshua has lost three of his last five bouts and is without a world title, while the unpredictable Fury – who last week appeared in the scripted world of World Wrestling Entertainment – has said he has retired on more than one occasion But in a somewhat unexpected twist, WBC champion Fury challenged Joshua via social media on 5 September On Tuesday, Joshua, according to his management company, agreed terms to fight Fury on 3 December Should it finally happen as has been proposed, is the meeting still a modern era super fight? Or has interest dwindled and are there actually bigger fights available to be made instead
