Anthony Joshua Names The Three Boxers He Wants To Fight Next

Anthony Joshua Names The Three Boxers He Wants To Fight Next

Anthony Joshua will be keeping a close watch on the outcome of the fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury for the WBC Heavyweight Championship on December 1st.

Of course, that could set up a mouth-watering match where AJ could fight either Wilder or Fury and the winner would unify the belts.

While that is a dream scenario, there's no way of saying that things would pan out that way.

However, the 29-year-old Brit has revealed the boxers he wouldn't mind fighting next.

"I am not out again until next year, April 13," he told Sky Sports. "You know we're ready [for] Wilder. Whatever, we are ready.

"But this isn't about me, this is about Chisora-Whyte. I am looking forward to that fight, I will be there.

"It's a blessing to take myself out of training and go and watch these guys go and perform and see it from a different point of view.

"If I was a betting man? I want Chisora to win because he's my guy, north-west London. I respect him. He's a Finchley ABC ambassador and he was a role model when I was coming through

"And Dillian, I want him to win because I want to box him again. Come April 13, if Wilder doesn't step up, they're my two options.

"Good luck to Chisora, good luck to Whyte, they're both relevant wins for me."

SPORTbible reported earlier today that the fight between Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora had been confirmed, which will take place on 22nd December at the O2 Arena in London, England.
