Anthony Joshua Informs Promoter Of Preferred Next Opponent
Anthony Joshua informs his promoter Eddie Hearn of who he wants to fight next following his big win over Klitschko.
Anthony Joshua is a man in demand at the moment following his monumental win over Wladimir Klitschko that sold a staggering 90,000 tickets at Wembley stadium.
Everyone wants a piece of the heavyweight champion now and the likes of Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury, Joseph Parker, a Klitschko rematch and many others have already been mentioned as possibilities.
It could be argued that Joshua following the win over Klitschko is now most likely the biggest star in world boxing. If he’s not, he could just be a close second to Canelo Alvarez in terms of star power.
Although the pay per view records he shattered in the UK for the Klitschko fight suggest that Joshua is already a bigger star than Canelo.
Certainly on a worldwide basis – as Joshua’s fights also drew big numbers in the US and in Germany.
Despite all the offers out there at the moment and possibilities of unification world title fights, Joshua wants one rematch more than any other.
Speaking to The Times, Joshua said he has told his promoter Eddie Hearn that he would like to fight old foe Dillian Whyte next up.
Joshua fought Whyte in December of 2015 and knocked him out cold via a brutal uppercut.
However the feelings between the two have seemed to continue on since the fight and Joshua, who lost to Whyte in the amateurs – clearly wants to make it 2-1 overall between amateur and pro.
