Anthony Joshua has serious plans for the future and there are several names mentioned as potential opponents. While it is clear that the Brit is not afraid of anyone in the ring, he did reveal who he would like to face in the near future in the ring.
“Dillian Whyte – not so much, but it is what it is. Joe Joyce interests me the most. Wilder interests me but because I feel like this situation with Fury and Wilder – it’s just been back and forth – I would leave that to my team.
I like the Joe Joyce fight. I think that’s one that interests people, and Joe Joyce is from the same country as me, so it makes sense”. - he said, as quoted by boxing-social.com However, Joshua is ready for her next opponent, Jermaine Franklin.
He is ready to give his maximum in this match. He also commented on the collapse of the match between Usyk and Fury. "Looking at the champions, it's just a shambles," Joshua said. "I can't believe no fights have been made at the championship level.
It's for me to do my job on Saturday. From round one to round 12, I'm prepared for a 12 rounder, but I do believe in my ability, my counter-punching and all that to put a dent in Jermaine. I think we'll see blood."
Anthony Joshua on Derrick James
Joshua also spoke to his new trainer, Derrick James.
They have a great collaboration so far, and Joshua expects that Derrick could improve his qualities. "I took myself away to disconnect and all the questions I've been asking myself, the answers came," Joshua said. "I respect Derrick fully and I trust everything he's saying," he added.
"The knowledge he spits is phenomenal. The physical work's done. It's all about the knowledge. That's where you've got to train your mind. Derrick is up there with one of the best people I've spoken to about boxing. I'm looking forward to showing him he hasn't wasted his time by taking on this project."
