Usyk is the second on Joshua’s list of rivals
IBF, WBO, and WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua admitted that he would be interested in a fight with Ukrainian Oleksander Usyk. But Joshua plans to hold this fight only after a potential meeting with Deontay Wilder. On June 1 Joshua will face Andy Ruiz, who replaced Jarrell Miller.
“I will follow Usyk’s fight with Takam. If I could fulfill all my desires, I would fight with Wilder to unify the titles, and then I would meet with Usyk. There would be a fight of two undisputed world champions in two weight categories,” Joshua said.
“I respect Usyk very much and wish him success. He is a different than those like Miller, who are pondering to the right and left. We talk with fists in the ring, not outside it. Welcome to the heavyweights", said Joshua.
