“He’s just as good as Tyson Fury’ – Anthony Joshua says as he names five boxers he could fight take after fighting Oleksandr Usyk

Heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua has named five fights he could have after Oleksandr Usyk and also claims his next opponent is ‘just as good’ as Tyson Fury. AJ’s clash with Usyk was finally confirmed on Tuesday, July 20 as a 60,000 sell-out for September 25 at Tottenham Hotspur stadium. AJ, 31, won Olympic super-heavyweight gold at London 2012 the day after Usyk, now 34, won the same medal in the heavyweight division. Usyk went on to rule the 14st 4lbs cruiserweight division as undisputed champion and has now enjoyed two warm-up fights in the blue-riband ranks. Now the WBO has ordered 24-1 AJ to face the undefeated southpaw - and the Englishman is adamant he possesses just as many skills as Fury. However, Joshua who has the WBA, IBF and WBO titles, says he...
