Anthony Joshua to Fight Winner Between Fury, Usyk

Former Boxing champion, Anthony Joshua will fight the winner between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk.
That will be if Joshua defeats Daniel Dubois in September.
This was revealed by Boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn.
Joshua’s last bout came in March, when he knocked out former UFC champions, Francis Ngannou, in the second round.
In an interview with the UK Sun, Hearn noted that their first priority is for Joshua to regain the world heavyweight title.
He said: “I expect the winner of the December fight to fight Anthony Joshua, if he wins in September.



“There’s no decision yet made on the opponent, there’s three or four in the mix. But yeah, that’s the absolute plan.
“The first priority is to regain the world heavyweight title and obviously undisputed has always been the dream.
“So I think we’re two fights away from becoming undisputed. But, we’ve got to win them.”
Last month, Usyk beat Fury via split decision in a historic showdown.
The Ukrainian’s win saw him become the first boxer since Lennox Lewis in 1999 to unify the heavyweight division, taking the WBC title off Fury and adding it to his WBA (Super), WBO, IBF and IBO titles.

Boxer, Anthony Joshua Currently Spending 4 Days Alone In A Pitch Black Room After Paying £2,000 For The Experience

Anthony Joshua, the globally-renowned British-Nigerian boxer, is currently going through a surreal experience.

The boxer is currently spending four days alone in a pitch-black room after paying £2,000 for the experience.

The style of retreat is used by various sporting stars as a method of meditation to help athletes be alone with their thoughts.

In a post on Instagram before embarking on the retreat, Joshua wrote: ‘Myself and [my friend] are about to embrace the darkness and solitude for four days (separate rooms).

‘Isolated with nothing to do except relax and clear the mind while being immersed in infinite darkness.’ He will emerge on Friday.

The 34-year-old has been fed via food passed into the room but there has been no social interaction or light all week.

NFL star Aaron Rodgers, who embarked on a similar retreat, shared his experience in March, stating: ‘It was a great reset for me, for my body and my mind,’ the 39-year-old said of the four-day excursion. ‘Maybe a little bit longer than I needed. I feel like by the time I got to the fourth day, I was like, ”Alright, I’m ready to come out”.

Anthony Joshua Knocks Out Robert Helenius With Brutal Finish

Anthony Joshua, the world-famous two-time heavyweight champion, on Saturday night, knocked out Dillian Whyte’s late replacement Robert Helenius.

Joshua was due to fight British heavyweight rival, Whyte in a long-awaited rematch but ‘The Body Snatcher’ failed a drug test a week before the bout.

However, Finland’s Helenius stepped in at short notice but was no match for Joshua.

Joshua controlled the early rounds without dazzling before stopping his opponent in the seventh with a devastating right-hander to the jaw.

The 33-year-old was stunned by a late replacement in 2019 as Andy Ruiz took advantage of a chance of a lifetime to become world heavyweight champion, but Helenius was unable to produce a similar upset at the O2.

“People need to leave me alone, this is my time in the ring. Let me keep doing what I want to do,”Joshua told DAZN after the bout.

“I don’t want to say too much, but I want to see you [the fans] again two more times this year.”

Anthony Joshua Gives Fresh Hints On His Next Fight

Anthony Joshua, the two-time heavyweight champion, has backtracked on his claim that he won’t fight again until December this year.

Instead, he has hinted at a potential return to the ring this summer.

Recall that Joshua had lost twice against Ukraine’s Oleksandr Usyk, leaving the door open for potential mega-fights with Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury or Joe Joyce.

Yet one week after beating Franklin, fans were left puzzled when Joshua revealed on social media that his next outing would not come for another eight months.

“Not ideal, but everything is part of a bigger picture,” Joshua wrote on Instagram.

That announcement was soon followed by astonishing reports which claimed Saudi Arabian officials are now planning a historic night of boxing which would see Joshua vs Wilder and Fury vs Usyk take place on the same card at the end of this year, with the winners of each bout then going on to lock horns in 2024.

However, Joshua has now suggested he could return to the ring in “July or August” if both he and his new coach Derrick James believe doing so is the right move.

“I thought as I have changed maybe three coaches in three years, it would be good to develop and work under the guidance of my new coach and by the time I am back in the ring, I have cemented and implemented everything he wants,” the British boxer told Sky Sports.

“But the only way we are going to put everything he is teaching me to the test is through fighting.

“So rather than putting pressure on myself, and I don’t want to lie to the fans at the time, I am fighting this date when there is still conversations, I just wanted to draw a line in the sand and say I am not fighting until this date.

“If I, my coach, decide to change my mind… I feel I am able to change my mind, right? So I am able to fight in July or August if I want, but right now, it is off the table, but we are subject to chance providing my coach is happy with what he sees.”
