Anthony Joshua Wants To Fight Deontay Wilder In April; Not Interested In Tyson Fury (VIDEO)
Boxing fans have been calling for this fight to happen for a long time, and it seems Anthony Joshua is finally on board with it happening.
The Britain boxer, who holds the IBF, WBO and WBA belts, was speaking with Max Kellerman on ESPN’s ‘First Take’ on Thursday and boldly stated that he had no interest in fighting Tyson Fury, and wanted Deontay Wilder in a bout in April 2019.
“I’m not interested in Tyson Fury – he’s not the champion,” Joshua said.
Joshua told ESPN: “I’m willing to fight Deontay Wilder on 13 April in London. I don’t know what more I need to do to get that message across. He’s more interested in fighting Tyson Fury. Fury holds no world titles.
“I’ve booked the date in advance, booked the venue in advance. I want to make my point clear in front of everyone – I’m willing to fight any one of these guys, especially the champion Deontay Wilder.
“I’m the one leading the pack since I made my debut. Five years in, several title defences and I’m running the game. I mean business. I don’t know what more I need to do to get that message across to the world. I can handle my business and I’m willing to do that in the ring.”
Only problem going forward is following the draw between Wilder and Fury earlier this month, the WBC sanctioned a direct rematch.
