Two-time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has challenged recently crowned WBC champion Tyson Fury to a fight.
Both boxers are in possession of all the titles in their division following the Gypsy King's emphatic victory over Deontay Wilder in February.
Fury stunned the Bronze Bomber at the MGM Grand Arena two months back after making him kiss the canvass in the seventh round of their fight.
Talks are now ongoing with fans and stakeholders alike hoping to have a unified heavyweight bout anytime soon, despite Wilder triggering the trilogy clause in their contract.
With all things being equal, both Fury and the Bronze Bomber are expected to meet for the third time before any other fight.
But the boxer of Nigerian descent has now sent his compatriot a message, asking him for a dance in the rings.
He told Sky Sport: "Come fight me (Tyson Fury), If you really want to say you are number one, come and fight me. Let's get it on, I've got the rest of the belts so it only makes sense.
"That proves that I am the unified heavyweight champion of the world, he is the WBC champion of the world.
"What that will prove, me and him fighting is that there will be one dominant figure in the heavyweight division that will have all of the belts and become undisputed.
"So logically it says to prove yourself as number one, I have to fight Tyson Fury, and he fights against Anthony Joshua.
"And it will be cause for a great announcement after this whole pandemic we are facing right now. Come fight me, Tyson Fury."
Unlike the current WBC champion, Joshua has tasted defeat once in his heavyweight career after losing to Andy Ruiz in America last June.
The 30-year-old however regrouped and reclaimed his belts back after staging a rematch in Saudi Arabia last December.
