Boxing Live: Anthony Joshua has stated exclusively to Sky Sports that his ideal scenario would be to face Dillian Whyte, Deontay Wilder, and Tyson Fury in the heavyweight division.
Joshua confirmed his rematch with Whyte at The O2 in London on August 12, and the former world champion expressed disappointment that an undisputed showdown with Fury did not take place.
“I’m not dissatisfied. That is simply the reality in which we live. That’s the truth,” Joshua said to Sky Sports.
“Unfortunately, it did not take place, but I am not disappointed because we know why. People are starting to take notice.
“This is how boxing sometimes goes. People are just…it’s a pity.
“But it is what it is, and it is none of my business. If it had been me, I would have gone in there and fought, but since it wasn’t me, I can’t really comment on another man’s actions.
“Yeah, it’d be [dream scenario: Whyte, Wilder, and Fury]. However, dreams are fabricated. This is the truth.”
When asked if he thought he had what it took to overcome all three men, Joshua said, “Yes.”
This year, Joshua hired a new trainer in Derrick James, whom he referred to as “a serious trainer” during a news conference with Whyte on Monday.
“What I meant was, just make sure you’re ready to work when you come to the gym,” Joshua told Sky Sports.
“As if he knows what his expectations are. His gym is named World Class Boxing Gym. What a moniker! He has a high standard, and it is difficult to meet.
“He’s a serious guy. He’s a really serious man.
“I did what I had to do, but there was a period earlier where I was trying out different coaches and ended up fighting a good fighter in Usyk during that trial and error phase, but everything happens for a reason in this universe, so I’ve got to trust my process.”
