Anthony Joshua Shows Interest to Fight Deontay Wilder in 2022. AJ showed his willingness and readiness to have a match with Deontay Wilder in 2022 in the hopes that the opportunity will present itself
The British-Nigerian boxer says that he wished for this fight with Deontay Wilder to happen after he takes back his lost titles from Oleksandr Usyk. It is obvious that AJ is eagerly seeking a redemption, come 2022 as he is currently training to have a rematch with Usyk after suffering a devastating defeat in London last month. Anthony Joshua in his words said;
“If the fans can’t see I would take these fights with the fighters like Wilder in a heartbeat,” Joshua told IFL TV. “And I want people to know that I would fight anyone in their prime or anytime. Give me a mandatory and I will fight anyone, I love the game and will fight anyone.
“I will take on any challenge providing politics aren’t an issue and the finances are there with these guys, people know what I am about. I think Wilder fought Fury thinking it was going to be easier than his previous fights and got caught in a trilogy web. “But would I fight Wilder, yes I would.”
If that happens, and Aj claims back his titles, he will then have to fight either an undisputed clash with Tyosn Fury or even a shot at Deontay Wilder upon his return from injury. But the 31-year-old has promised to fight “anyone” and would be keen to take a fight with the ‘Bronze Bomber if any challenge comes up.
