Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has once again spoken of his desire to continue to mix it with the very best in the division.
Joshua, who fights dangerous puncher Alexander Povetkin in just over 2 weeks, isn’t taking his eye off his next foe completely. However, in a recent interview he’s revealed that he believes big fights against the likes of Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury can still happen, even if any of them lose an upcoming fight in the mean time.
“Let’s say worst happens with Povetkin, it don’t stop me from having to fight them. They will still want to fight me, because we’re big in the game,” Joshua told Sky Sports News.
“We’re going to fight regardless because we’re the same weight category, and we’re in the same era, and it’s the fight that people want to see.
“If Wilder gets beat in that fight with Fury, I’ll still fight Wilder down the line, or if Fury gets beat.”
And he’s not wrong. In a time when boxers can often be cautious of losing an unbeaten record, it’s refreshing to see Joshua speak openly about the possibility of losing and still having future big fights available.
