British former two-weight world champion Hatton, Ricky Hatton, believes a fight between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury must happen soon, admitting it has been ‘years’ since two British fighters dominated the sport.

Joshua holds the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO titles, while Fury is the current holder of the WBC after defeating Deontay Wilder.

Hatton who competed in the ring between 1997 and 2012, believes a fight between both heavyweights must happen in the near future.

“I have been a fan of the game and a fan of British fighters past and the present,” Hatton told talkSPORT.

“I remember years ago we would have two British lads competing for the title – but I had never heard of them.

“Now we have two of the best with different styles and different personalities.

“There’s no way it cannot happen,” Hatton said.

Meanwhile, Joshua says a clash must take place to determine just who can claim to be the No.1 heavyweight.

”Yes, come fight me. If you really want to say you’re No.1, come fight me. Let’s get it on,” Joshua told Sky Sports.

“I’ve got the rest of the belts so it only makes sense.

“I’m the unified heavyweight champion of the world, he’s the WBC champion.

“What it will prove, me and him fighting? There will be one dominant figure in the heavyweight division that will have all of the belts and become undisputed.

“Logically to prove yourself as No.1, I have to fight Tyson Fury. He has to fight Anthony Joshua.”
