Anthony Joshua names the three fights he wants before he retires
| Last updated
Anthony Joshua has named the THREE blockbuster fights he wants before he calls time on his legendary boxing career.
Joshua is on a two-fight losing skid having lost back-to-back fights to Oleksandr Usyk, losing his world titles in the process.
He will look to get back to winning ways as he faces Jermaine Franklin in a big O2 Arena homecoming on Saturday.
Ahead of meeting the American, the 33-year-old has outlined the three fights he wants before he retires from the sport.
During a red carpet event on Monday, 'AJ' told reporters that he wants to take on Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder and Joe Joyce.
Of course, a huge contest between Joshua and Fury has been talked about for years, but has failed to materialise.
Promoter Eddie Hearn wants to match his star fighter against 'The Gypsy King' if he gets past Franklin.
Joshua facing Wilder has also been speculated, but, just like Fury vs. Joshua, has been unable to come to fruition.
As for Joyce, the 37-year-old is unbeaten in his professional career, having beaten the likes of Daniel Dubois, Carlos Takam and Joseph Parker.
He's called for a fight against Joshua as he looks to land a major fight.
Fury, Wilder and Joyce could all be options for Joshua should he beat Franklin.
Hearn believes Fury vs. Joshua is 'makeable' as he talked up the all-British showdown.
"I think it’s so makeable, but obviously everything is focused on Saturday," he said.
"For me, everything is about timing. So AJ goes in on the weekend and knocks Franklin out. Fury doesn’t have a fight; AJ doesn’t have a fight. The politics have evaporated the belts.
"We know there was a deal that was already discussed that would make us feel like if we had time, we could push that in a good position. So, I think it’s a case of myself and [Fury’s promoter] George Warren, quietly, quietly, we’ll work together."
The Matchroom chief added: "If there’s a way, then present it to Tyson. If Tyson and AJ said, 'Oh, they’re working together on a deal. Oh, you know what? I’ve heard this before.'
"Let’s just see, but if Saturday goes our way [with the Franklin fight], tell me a bigger fight for Tyson Fury. Tell me a bigger fight for AJ. There’s nothing even close in terms of its size."
