What Next for Joshua?

On the back of his tremendous demolition of Kevin ‘Kingpin’ Johnson on Saturday evening, pundits are asking what could be next for Anthony Joshua.

The Watford heavyweight, with his 13 fight unbeaten record with all coming inside the first three rounds, has certainly got people talking.

His promoter, Eddie Hearn, is of the opinion that Joshua can be the heavyweight champion of the world and is looking to get him the opportunity to fight for the world title but only when the right opening comes along.

Talking to the press after the fight and expanding on the world title ambitions Hearn had this to say,

“Right now I love the Whyte fight, I love the Chisora fight. I love the Price fight.

“They’ll all bring the same kind of thing as Johnson. Maybe not the rapping and that kind of stuff but they’ll generate interest.

“If we are talking about Whyte and Price, I think you’re looking at September 12th. That’s the kind of fight we’re looking for.

“They are the kind of fights Joshua wants and he will fill the O2, with any of them.

“We all know the way he’s going and it’s gathering some serious pace now.

“There will come a point when he wants to be in those big fights because he wants to be tested. I’m just not sure anyone can test him.

“The only person that can stop him is Anthony Joshua – and he’s not that type of person.

“He’ll get a shot at the world title whenever he wants.

“You’ll probably see him ranked in the top three somewhere now, rightly or wrongly.

“When is Anthony going to fight for that world title? When he’s ready and when the right opportunity presents itself.”


These are certainly exciting times for British heavyweight boxing and the months ahead are going to provide us all with some thrills and spills.
