Will Fury's training lead him to a fight with Joshua? If he likes he can just give up the belt but if not then October or November sounds good to me so it's your move boy.
For Klitschko - who perhaps with an extra few punches might have finished Joshua - it could spell retirement, especially after his previous defeat more than a year ago by Britain's Tyson Fury. "Look, my team let that fight happen because the WBA and Eddie Hearn asked us for a favour and because Klitschko didn't want to fight me but I'm done being pushed back".
