Joshua Ready for Any Challenge

Boxing star Anthony Joshua has made it clear that he does not shy away from a challenge. He recently revealed that he signed contracts to fight both Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, proving his willingness to take on the best in the business.

Wild Ride to Wilder Fight

Anthony Joshua had signed a contract to face Deontay Wilder in a highly anticipated bout in Riyadh. However, Wilder's loss to Joseph Parker caused the fight agreement to fall through, despite both fighters signing on the dotted line.

Business-Minded Fighter

Joshua emphasized that he is always up for a challenge and does not back down from tough opponents. Despite facing setbacks with the Wilder fight and a canceled bout with Fury due to contractual obligations, Joshua remains determined to prove himself in the ring.

Looking Ahead

With Fury's upcoming fight against Oleksandr Usyk postponed due to injury, and Ngannou showing his strength in the ring, Joshua is ready to face the best and test his skills. He believes in always overestimating his opponents to avoid any surprises in the ring.
