Anthony Joshua Discusses Mega Superfight Double with Usyk, Fury, and Wilder

Introduction: Anthony Joshua’s Ambitious Plans

Anthony Joshua has officially announced that he is in discussions to participate in a monumental superfight event that would showcase not just him but also heavyweight boxing stars Oleksandr Usyk, Tyson Fury, and Deontay Wilder.

The project, valued at an astonishing £325 million, has been on the radar since SunSport revealed the interest from Saudi Arabia back in April.

AJ’s Confirmation: A Double Superfight Night

While at the US Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, Anthony Joshua confirmed the ongoing talks regarding a blockbuster night of boxing.

He revealed that the proposal is to feature two marquee heavyweight matchups: Oleksandr Usyk vs. Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder. However, Joshua hinted that this colossal event might not materialize until April.

Fury vs. Usyk: Unification Set for Riyadh

A crucial piece of this grand puzzle is the already-signed deal for a title unification showdown between Britain’s undefeated WBC champion, Tyson Fury (35), and the WBA, IBF, and WBO king, Oleksandr Usyk (36). This unification clash is scheduled to take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Joshua vs. Wilder: Terms Agreed, Date and Venue Awaited

In addition to the Fury vs. Usyk matchup, terms have also been settled for Anthony Joshua to face former world champion Deontay Wilder.

However, specific details such as the fight date and venue have not yet been finalized.

The Next Window for Action: March-April

Anthony Joshua offered insights into the anticipated timeline for these superfight spectacles.

He mentioned that the most likely window for these epic clashes will be in March or April, which aligns with his earlier statement that the proposed superfight night might not happen until April.

A Mega Card in the Making

The organizers behind this grand vision are keen on turning it into a mega event, with both heavyweight superfights occurring on the same night. Joshua shared, “What we are being told is they want to make it a mega card, and they like the sound of Joshua v Wilder on the same night.”

Joshua’s Immediate Plans: Fighting in December

Before potentially facing Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua has immediate plans to step into the ring in December, with London as the likely location.

However, his opponent for this December fight remains undisclosed.

AJ’s Focus on Staying Busy

Despite the buzz surrounding a showdown with Wilder and the superfight extravaganza, Joshua emphasized his commitment to staying active in the sport.

He stated, “I’ve got to stay busy. I’m not listening to all the noise about Wilder and these guys. When the opportunity comes, we will be ready.”

Conclusion: A Spectacular Era for Heavyweight Boxing

With the possibility of a superfight double featuring some of the most celebrated names in heavyweight boxing, fans worldwide can anticipate a thrilling era for the sport.

The outcome of these negotiations holds the promise of delivering a series of bouts that will captivate the boxing world.
