Recent hints from Anthony Joshua regarding his upcoming fight

At the beginning of April, Joshua, 33, returned to winning ways by dominating Jermaine Franklin in a points victory at the O2 Arena.
 

 

Remember that Joshua had twice lost to Oleksandr Usyk of the Ukraine, which left the possibility of huge fights with Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury, or Joe Joyce open.

Fans were baffled, though, when Joshua revealed on social media that it would be another eight months before he competed again, just one week after defeating Franklin.

 

“Not ideal, but everything is part of a bigger picture,” Joshua wrote on Instagram.

 

That announcement was soon followed by astonishing reports which claimed Saudi Arabian officials are now planning a historic night of boxing which would see Joshua vs Wilder and Fury vs Usyk take place on the same card at the end of this year, with the winners of each bout then going on to lock horns in 2024.

 

However, Joshua has now suggested he could return to the ring in “July or August” if both he and his new coach Derrick James believe doing so is the right move.

“I thought as I have changed maybe three coaches in three years, it would be good to develop and work under the guidance of my new coach and by the time I am back in the ring, I have cemented and implemented everything he wants,” the British boxer told Sky Sports.

“But the only way we are going to put everything he is teaching me to the test is through fighting.

“So rather than putting pressure on myself, and I don’t want to lie to the fans at the time, I am fighting this date when there is still conversations, I just wanted to draw a line in the sand and say I am not fighting until this date.

“If I, my coach, decide to change my mind… I feel I am able to change my mind, right? So I am able to fight in July or August if I want, but right now, it is off the table, but we are subject to chance providing my coach is happy with what he sees.”
