Tyson Fury has stated that he will come out of retirement to fight Anthony Joshua for free.

WBC heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury has stated that he will fight Anthony Joshua for free provided his requirement are met.

In June, The Gypsy King stated that he will hang up his gloves but has not come out to say he would sign the contract immediately to take on Joshua provided his terms were met.

“The fight has got to be for free,” Fury stated this in a post via his Instagram.

“Free to air on television and all tickets go for free. No money is to be made off of this British, historic fight if it happens,” he said.

“There’s the terms, I’m in the driving seat, take it or effing leave it.”

The 33 year-old knocked out fellow Briton Dillian Whyte in April to retain his title before telling fans he would be sticking to his promise to his wife to retire.

In June he said he would fight again for 500 million pounds ($600 million).

A match was almost set between Fury and Joshua last year until an arbitrator ruled Fury had to fight Deontay Wilder for a third time.

Joshua lost his WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts when he fell to Ukraine’s Oleksandr Usyk in London in September, and the pair are set to meet for a rematch in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Aug. 20.
