Before Canelo vs Chavez, the boxing world was buzzing with chatter of IBF/WBA Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. After a stunning KO or Wladimir Klitschko, combat sports fans could not stop talking about Joshua and what could be next for him. The only other man to defeat Klitschko in the last decade, The ‘Gypsy King’ Tyson Fury broke some shocking [but unverified] news during an interview with the Daily Telegraph, saying Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has already locked in an April 2018 date for a clash between Fury and Joshua.
Fury, who until now has been ‘retired’, had a meeting recently to see if he can be cleared to return to fighting, and is awaiting the results of that meeting.
Eddie Hearn has already booked Wembley Stadium for [a fight with Anthony Joshua] next April. There isn’t another stadium where it should take place. I would fight Joshua in October but I believe Klitschko will take the rematch. Deep down, I don’t think they want to fight me yet. Joshua struggled with Klitschko, and I took Klitschko to school, toyed with him, put my hands behind my back, literally, while he was letting his cannons go, slipping out of the way of them. They are not ready for that.
