Anthony Joshua has sat down on camera for the first time and spoken about what he thinks about his two closest rivals Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury in final negotiations for their fight expected in December.
The fight should be announced any day now.
Ar at the latest on Golovkin vs Canelo fight week in Las Vegas next week.
It should be happening in December. Likely in Las Vegas.
Whoever wins the bout will then find themselves in pole position to take on Anthony Joshua next year in a super fight.
Provided Joshua gets past Alexander Povetkin on September 22nd of course.
Speaking on television live on Sky Sports News, Joshua said of Wilder vs Fury:
“I think because they both need that fight (they are fighting one another). I think they’re at the stage of their careers, ten years in, where they need meaningful fights as well. They are not at the start of their career where they are building up their records. They’ve been in the game a long time and they both need each other, so good luck to them. It’s good for boxing as well.”
“I think regardless we’re going to have to fight (all three of us at some stage). We’re going to fight regardless. Same weight category, same era and it’s the fight people want to see. So yeah, we’re going to fight each other.”
The three can’t avoid one another.
No matter what happens, really.
They are all relatively still young in heavyweight terms and are going to be around for a long time from here on out.
