Anthony Joshua spoke about a potential bout with Tyson fury.
World champion WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (23-1, 21 KO) said he considers Tyson fury (30-0-1, 21 KO), having the WBC title, as the next opponent. The Briton is confident in his victory over compatriot.
“I’m here to make history. When I lit the fire. Fury – just another opponent. For everyone else it will be a major battle, but I have to stay focused. I look at fury just as another soldier. Believe me.
I can’t wait for the fight. I already felt what it’s like to be on top of the mountain. And felt the falling from that mountain. Now I’m back on the top, and whoever stood in my way, I won’t look down.
When I go in Kubrat Pulev and you’ll get the opportunity to meet with Tyson fury for the heavyweight championship of the WBC, we’ll see how it feels to a man who lost everything, but got him back,” said Joshua in an interview with GQ.
Previously Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn expressed his confidence in the fact that fury wants to accept the fights with Joshua and told that negotiations are already underway.
