Current WBA Super IBF, IBO and WBO champion Usyk outclassed Anthony Joshua for a second time in their Middle East rematch.

He inflicted back-to-back defeats for Joshua for the first time in the Brit's professional career.

Fans across the sport had called on The Gypsy King to be the next challenger to whoever came out on top in the rematch, setting up an undisputed title fight.

Moments after his win, Ukrainian Usyk called out the 34-year-old, saying "I'm sure that Tyson Fury is not retired yet.

"I'm sure, I'm convinced he wants to fight me. I want to fight him and if I'm not fighting Tyson Fury, I'm not fighting at all."

Fury – who had performed yet another U-turn early in August to suggest he was going to retire – responded to suggest the fight could be on.

Reacting via an Instagram video, Fury responded: "It was one of the worst heavyweight title fights l have ever seen.
