I’m preparing for big fight, Joshua fuel Wilder fight speculation

0 26

Anthony Joshua has fueled the speculation of the fight between himself and Deontay Wilder as he claims he is preparing for the big fight.

Former heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is not shying away from fighting American boxer Deontay Wilder.

Joshua has welcomed a potential blockbuster battle against Wilder, with reports even suggesting that Tyson Fury could even face Oleksandr Usyk in an undisputed world heavyweight title fight on the same night in December.

Wilder’s manager Shelly Finkel told Sky Sports that the American was ‘willing to fight’ Joshua, a challenge which has been accepted by the two-time world champion.

“Have you ever heard of anything like that before? Two heavyweight clashes on the same night,” Joshua told Sky Sports News.

“The rumours that are circulating, there might be some truth behind it.”

Joshua claimed a unanimous decision win recently over Jermaine Franklin at The O2 earlier this month, while Wilder demolished Robert Helenius inside one round last October.

“I’m preparing for that big fight, when it comes. I’m just taking it one fight at a time and building, so that by the time I get to that finish line, I’ve got something in the tank. That’s how I’m getting on with this year.

“I’ve had my first fight; I’ve spoken to my coach, hopefully I can fight in July or August – keep that momentum – and then by December, there’s rumours going around that I’m going to be in a big showdown – and I can’t wait.”
