Anthony Joshua Asked Which Opponent He Wanted To Face The Most In A Fantasy Fight

Anthony Joshua Asked Which Opponent He Wanted To Face The Most In A Fantasy Fight

Anthony Joshua has revealed that he would have loved an all-British showdown with Lennox Lewis in a fantasy fight.

The 30-year-old Brit superstar is eager to cement his legacy like boxing legend Lewis by becoming undisputed heavyweight champion.

But during a series of quick-fire questions, Joshua admitted that a clash with Lewis on British soil would have topped his list for a potential dream fight.

When asked about his dream bout, 'AJ' responded: "Lennox Lewis at Wembley Stadium, the best of Britain!"

Sky Sports previously sparked a heated debate last month when they asked fans who would win in a fantasy fight between 'AJ' and Lewis.

Joshua, who became a two-time unified heavyweight champ last year after beating Andy Ruiz Jr, revealed his favourite career moment came in his Wembley win over Wladimir Klitschko.

However, 'AJ' insisted that one of his 'sweetest moments' remains his victory over fellow Brit Dillian Whyte.

"The sweetest moment was getting that victory over Dillian Whyte. I will always hold onto that.

"It was north London vs south London. Two rivals coming together. It meant a lot."

Joshua was scheduled to defend his championship crown against IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev in June.

Joshua has since reignited his rivalry with fellow Brit Tyson Fury and wants to set up an undisputed clash with the WBC champ.

'AJ,' who delivered a fresh callout to Fury this week, is willing to make the unification clash happen even if it's behind closed doors.

"If [promoter] Eddie Hearn said he managed to secure the Tyson Fury fight, but it is behind closed doors, I would take it," he told DAZN.

"If I don't take it now then I don't think Tyson Fury will be around by the time this all comes around again, when big hall shows are available. I have to take the opportunity while it's there."
