Anthony Joshua insists Tyson Fury is just one of many heavyweight boxers he is hoping to knock out in the coming years. Joshua is on the brink of sealing an all-British showdown with his rival Fury.
Speaking to BBC Radio 1Xtra, Joshua said: “Some people say sky’s the limit, I’m looking at what’s beyond there so I’m taking it all the way to the top and back and I can’t wait to get in the ring and compete with anyone this year, it’s not only Tyson Fury, there’s so many great. Heavyweights I want to get in the ring with and dance with and beat up so Tyson Fury is just one on a long list.”
When asked further about how his life has been during the past 12-months Joshua looked to focus on the positive.
The world champion said: “[It has been] Just like a transition period really, spent so many years living one way then had to kind of adapt so that transition of having the sunshine to being able to go outside, still work, train, connect with people over these types of video calls. Then the winter season, luckily I got to fight towards the end of the year so it gives me purpose, boxing helps me living with purpose.”
