Its been few days into 2020 and the World heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua has disclosed plans of fighting Oleksandr Usyk in the year.
Usyk, is the WBO’s mandatory challenger to Joshua and Kubrat Pulev is the IBF’s mandatory challenger to Joshua’s title.
Speaking to newsmen, Anthony stated that because he is trying to build his record, he wants a very credible opponent like Usyk to say he has defeated them.
“A very credible opponent. When I’m trying to build my record, I want opponents like Usyk to say that I’ve defeated them. He uses his feet very well, and positions his hands well. You can’t hit him because his feet move so well. If you do manage to catch him, (the punches) are brushing off the gloves,” said Joshua to Sky sports.
This means Joshua wants to build a very enviable reputation.
