Anthony Joshua Sure He Can Beat Klitschko

share on:

Anthony Joshua is sure of a world title fight against Wladmir Klitschko, and is confident the fight will happen.

Promoter Eddie Hearn is looking to set up the fight between the IBF heavyweight champion and Klitschko.

Joshua won the title against Charles Martin in April and defended it successfully against Breazeale, but admits a fight with the Ukraine boxer will be on a different plane.

He told Sky Sports News HQ: “It would be amazing for boxing in general, for British boxing, for the people that have wanted to see a general step up in class.

“It’s an interesting fight. It’s definitely one people have got interested in just by mentioning it. It ticks all the boxes for me at this present time. I think there’s a few fights the world of boxing wants.

“A heavyweight fight with a former champion and a current champion is a fight that definitely ticks that box that will get people’s hairs off their skin.

“There’s a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes. We’re dealing with a legendary sportsman in Klitschko and a current champion so there’s egos on the table.

“We’ve got to put that aside and hopefully we can definitely get this deal done. Eddie does a good job and he’s a fantastic promoter.

“I’ve got to look at my team, my team are guiding me and they’ve got to be happy with everything as well.

“I’m confident Eddie’s sending over the right messages and getting the right things in place for this fight to take place.”

Joshua, 26, added: “I’m hoping for November because it has been mentioned. There’s been people booking hotels and changing schedules around.

“If it means that we push it back another two weeks to December, it’s no problem with me because the fight will come, the fight will go. As long as the fight happens, it will be one I’ll be happy about.

“You have to do a lot of learning in the gym, of course, but when I fight someone like Klitschko, I have to make sure everything I’ve learned over the years comes into play.
