British heavyweight Anthony Joshua has been sent a clear message by his fans regarding a potential fight against Tyson Fury. Joshua suffered two consecutive defeats at the hands of Oleksandr Usyk, but returned to the ring earlier this month to face Jermaine Franklin. Although he won the fight by unanimous decision, Joshua failed to provide the knockout performance he had hoped for.
Since his defeat against Usyk, Joshua has employed a new trainer in Derrick James, in an effort to revive his career. However, he still needs to put in a strong performance if he is to take down Fury. Despite his less than satisfactory show against Franklin, Joshua remains confident in his abilities and his improved conditioning heading into a potential blockbuster with Fury.
In a recent interview, Joshua expressed that one of his biggest challenges was his stamina, which he has been working on since his loss against Usyk. Although Joshua needed to rally in the later rounds against Franklin, he believes that his stamina has now improved significantly, making him better prepared for a fight against Fury.
When asked about the possibility of a Fury fight, Joshua stated that he does not necessarily need more time, as he has already had the necessary training and conditioning to compete. He acknowledged that Fury is also a 12-round fighter, but he has the same confidence to go the distance.
The British heavyweight is eager to go head-to-head with Fury, who is widely regarded as one of the best fighters in the world. Joshua is hopeful that his next fight will provide him with the opportunity to reclaim his position as one of the top heavyweights in the world.
Deontay Wilder, another heavyweight fighter, has also expressed his desire to fight Joshua. Wilder went as far as to promise that he would make Joshua his “first Saudi KO victim,” if they ever faced each other. Regardless, Joshua seems focused on his bid to fight Fury in what would be a highly anticipated and potentially lucrative bout.
In conclusion, with Joshua focused on improving his fitness and conditioning, the scene is set for a potential blockbuster heavyweight showdown between Joshua and Fury. Fans of the sport eagerly anticipate this fight and are hopeful that Joshua will put up a strong performance and regain his position as one of the top heavyweights in the world.
