Anthony Joshua, 33, is in the restructuring phase of his career.
The former two-time unified world heavyweight champion has lost three of his last five fights, including two against Oleksandr Usyk, and is once again considering a coaching change. The British boxer is also considering moving his training camp to the US due to the changing environment.
Matchroom boxing head Eddie Hahn plans to arrange Joshua’s (24-3, 22 KOs) return to the ring for an April 1st date.
“It’s not difficult to find someone to fight me,” Joshua told IFL TV.
If Joshua pulls off a successful tune-up, he wants to go straight to the top of the division again.
“[Tyson Fury] Also [Deontay] Wilder [in 2023]Good night to both of you, you will be working the night shift.But yeah, in 2023 [Fury] Or maybe Deontay Wilder, or both. “
Joshua has long talked about playing against Wilder and Fury for years.
Joshua’s team has made a good deal of progress in negotiations with Fury’s team over the last few years, but a number of factors have always left quite a bit of steam off.
When Joshua was asked if the Fury ship had fully sailed, he remained positive about the possibility of a superfight.
“In my mind, no [it’s not over]but what if i ask [Fury] Up and down. But I’m sure he will fight me. I don’t think his dad will allow me not to fight. His father is a decent person, I like his father. “Yes,” said Joshua.
Hahn also said he would like Joshua to fight three times this year, but he has ideas for a summer opponent of Dillian White and then Wilder.
Joshua has previously said a fight with Wilder “has to happen.”
