Anthony Joshua: There Ain’t No Worries About David Haye. The IBF champion speaking ahead of his latest heavyweight title defence this Saturday in Manchester against Eric Molina.
Undefeated Anthony Joshua is currently readying himself for what is expected by most to be a relatively straight forward fight this weekend against American Eric Molina.
But his name is being talked about by many of the division’s big names at the minute too.
2017 is shaping up to be the year that Joshua will be matched with some of the world’s best heavyweights and one fight that makes sense straight away is a showdown with fellow local Londoner David Haye, who faces fellow Joshua promotional stablemate Tony Bellew next April.
There has always been a real feel of respect I’ve thought between Joshua and Haye, who rarely ever have anything negative to say about one another.
I get the feeling they both respect each other’s ability in the ring and ultimately know that a clash between them is inevitable.
Haye for the first time recently however (at least from what I can recall) broke this mould by saying that after he beats Bellew that he will be coming for Joshua, and then after he beats him he plans on ending Joshua’s promoter Matchroom Sport as a business.
Speaking to Kugan Cassius of IFL TV Joshua spoke on Haye’s plan by saying:
“A real general shouldn’t reveal their plans. A real general should keep their mouth quiet. We know Haye’s plan now – so good luck to him.”
He added that he isn’t worried about Haye whatsoever:
“I’ll probably see him in a couple of weeks time and we’ll get a picture together. When David Haye comes swimming into my pond, trust me, there ain’t no worries about David Haye whatsoever.”
Haye has been in the media a lot lately particularly with this left hook he threw at Tony Bellew at a press conference.
