Hearn Hints at Anthony Joshua-Deontay Wilder Fight

  Boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn, has said Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder can still be the “right” fight. However, Hearn admits the bout will not happen until at least, 2022. Joshua had been frustrated in his bid to agree a deal with Wilder. Any lingering hopes of a bout appeared to be ended when Wilder’s WBC belt was ripped away by Tyson Fury last year. Joshua is currently in talks about a two-fight contract with Fury. But Hearn refused to rule out Joshua vs Wilder in the future. He told Sky Sports: “If it’s the right fight for AJ, not stylistically, but if it’s the right commercial fight. “Wilder knows he turned down the deal of a lifetime to fight Joshua, but he made his bed and respect to him. “All we’re focusing on is the Tyson Fury fight, and anyth...

“I’d rather die in the battle than try to hide and survive” – Anthony Joshua fires warning to Tyson Fury as their world title fight edges closer

Anthony Joshua has fired a stern warning to Tyson Fury as their world title fight edges closer. The British-Nigerian boxer is expected to face Fury in an undisputed world title fight this year, with the pair still in talks to finalize terms for a blockbuster battle that will decide the sport's No 1 heavyweight. Speaking in an interview on his YouTube channel ahead of the fight, the two-time unified world heavyweight champion, said: ”I’d rather die in battle, so I can go to the heavens where the warriors lie than go to battle and try to hide and survive.” ”No matter what the tactics are, no matter how much you study, no matter how much you think you can beat me, I’m just there to win. That’s the fighter’s mentality – some people may not understand it,” he said. He also reite...

‘I’d Rather Die In Battle’ – Anthony Joshua Speaks Ahead Of Fury Matchup

Two-time unified world heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua has stepped up the fighting talk and warned Tyson Fury he relishes going to war in the ring as the pair move closer to a heavyweight mega-fight. With politics threatening the bout from taking place, many boxing fans are still hopeful to see the two champions face off for the undisputed crown. ”I’d rather die in battle, so I can go to the heavens where the warriors lie than go to battle and try to hide and survive,” Joshua said in an interview on his YouTube channel on his mindset ahead of the fight. ”No matter what the tactics are, no matter how much you study, no matter how much you think you can beat me, I’m just there to win.

I Will Smash Anthony Joshua – Tyson Fury

WBC Champion, Tyson Fury, has boasted he will beat Anthony Joshua inside three rounds. Negotiations for a dream fight between the two British boxers are still on. But Fury took to social media to say: “I just got off the phone with [my trainer] Sugarhill Steward in America. “We are going to smash AJ – one round, two rounds, three rounds. Done! “Can’t wait.” Fury’s message is the latest suggestion that he expects to face Joshua this year. The WBC champion’s feisty warning to his IBF, WBA and WBO counterpart comes after one of the biggest obstacles in agreeing the undisputed heavyweight title fight drew nearer to being resolved. Oleksandr Usyk’s is the WBO mandatory challenger to the title held by Joshua, but the governing body has now contacted the Ukrainian....

Joshua, Fury To Earn $100 Million Each In Heavyweight Showdown

A location has finally been confirmed for the all-British showdown between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury later this year, according to the Gypsy King’s legendary promoter Bob Arum. There has been much clamour for information on the bout, which is being billed as the biggest fight in the history of British boxing – and the destination for the fight is being kept a closely-guarded secret for now. With Saudi Arabia leading the way, and Singapore, Dubai, Qatar and China all staking their claims, Arum has revealed that a location has been decided, with both fighters set to earn a mammoth $100million (£73m) each, regardless of the result in the ring. “We have a location, that’s true,’ Arum told Barbershop Conversations. “We have a location and, as far as the date is confirmed, we ...

Klitschko Considering Coming Out Of Retirement At 44

Former world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko is considering making a stunning return to the ring at the age of 44, four years since he retired after losing to Anthony Joshua. However, it would require an offer of £75million to tempt the Ukrainian back into the ring. Klitschko ruled the heavyweight division during his professional career, which originally ran from 1996 to 2017 and saw him become world champion twice. His fight against Anthony Joshua at Wembley proved to be his last. Although he has always talked about a potential return, the idea of becoming the oldest world champion and breaking George Foreman’s record (45) seemed the only way to lure him back. Writing on social media, Klitschko said: “I’m sending nothing but positivity and prosperity to all of you,...

Anthony Joshua Hints on Retirement, Years of Fight Left

World Heavyweight Champion, Anthony Joshua, has admitted he is nearing the end of his career, hinting that he has a maximum of five years left before retirement. The 31-year-old could be close to the most significant period of his career, with his camp in talks over two massive unification fights against Tyson Fury in 2021. Since he made his pro debut in 2013, Joshua has become a two-time champion. The Briton regained his WBA, IBF and WBO titles in a 2019 rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr and defended them with a knockout win over Kubrat Pulev last month. This isn’t the start of my career. I’m coming towards the end of my career,” Joshua told Sky Sports News. “I’m not someone who lives in the moment and thinks that everything is just like for now. I’m always planning ahead so I’...

Tyson Fury Responds To Anthony Joshua After He Says: ‘A Great Modern Day Fighter Can Compete In Any Era’

  Tyson Fury has played down Anthony Joshua's claim that a 'great' modern-day fighter will be able to compete in any era by referencing his infamous defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr. 'The Gypsy King' continues to aim shots at the two-time unified heavyweight champion as the pair are reported to have a provisional two-fight agreement in place for 2021. Earlier this week, Fury dismissed Anthony Joshua's knockout claim as just "another lie" and said his British heavyweight rival is suffering from a confidence crisis. After his ninth-round KO of Kubrat Pulev in December, Joshua promised to take Fury's "head off his shoulders" when they eventually fight. But Fury laughed off AJ's knockout threat, claiming that he's never seen Joshua approach a fight that way. And now, after Joshua ...

I Will Knock Anthony Joshua Out Within Two Rounds -Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury said on Monday he can knock out fellow British world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua inside two rounds due to his recent form. WBC belt holder Fury said following Joshua’s past two bouts — a unanimous points decision over Andy Ruiz Junior in December 2019 and a ninth-round stoppage of Kubrat Pulev last month — the fight would be a no contest. Fury gained a unanimous points decision over Swede Otto Wallin in September 2019 before an impressive seventh-round knock-out to take the WBC title off Deontay Wilder last February. “I don’t believe he’s (Joshua) as good as people crack him up to be, or he doesn’t believe he is in his own self,” Fury told Sky Sports. “He’s got a confidence issue. He’s coming off two shaky performances and boxing is all about who is in fo...
