The Nigeria born British professional boxer, Anthony Joshua has named the professional boxers he will like to engage before he hang the glove.



Anthony Joshua has named seven fighters he could face before he hangs up his gloves.

The heavyweight world champion is due to defend his three belts against Kubrat Pulev this summer.

Originally slated for June 20, the clash has been rescheduled due to the outbreak coronavirus.

But assuming he retains his titles, Joshua will then set his sights on a plethora of rivals.

When asked who he could face, he told Sky Sports: “[Oleksandr] Usyk, [Deontay] Wilder, [Tyson] Fury, [Luis] Ortiz.

“Who else? I think that’s probably the majority. Adam Kownacki, Jarrell Miller… you know, that’s six names.”

Joshua went on to add Dillian Whyte to the mix having beaten his domestic foe in 2015.

“I know he’s been chasing a world title shot. I offered him a world title shot last year in April, he refused it.

“Maybe he wants his hand on the WBC, but if me and Tyson Fury fight, then I know he didn’t want to fight me last year, but he’ll definitely have to fight me this time, if he wants his hands on the WBC belt.

“Once I’ve beaten Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte can come and get this work as well. It won’t be that good, it will be one-sided.”

Joshua and Fury had hoped to clash at the end of the year but the pandemic looks to have put paid to that prospect.

1. Oleksandr Oleksandrovych Usyk

2. Deontay Leshun Wilder

3. Tyson Luke Fury

4. Luis Ortiz

5. Adam Kownacki,

6. Jarrell Miller

7. Dillian Whyte
