- Heavyweight says 2021 unification bout close to being agreed
- Joshua gives ‘substantial financial backing’ to amateur boxing
Anthony Joshua has warned Tyson Fury of his bad intentions when they eventually meet in the ring next year. “I want to take his head off his shoulders when that fight happens,” Joshua said on Tuesday as he also spoke of his more noble commitment to offer “substantial financial backing” to the amateur national boxing federations of England, Wales and Scotland so that he can help clubs in need of support during the pandemic.
Joshua, who defended his IBF, WBA and WBO world heavyweight titles when knocking out Kubrat Pulev this month, stressed how his local boxing gym in Finchley had saved him from a troubled path which could have seen him end up in jail. But in the midst of calling on the government to help support grassroots boxing, Joshua could not resist remembering a 2010 sparring session between him and Fury at Finchley Amateur Boxing Club.
