Nearing the end of his contract, many wondered what the next step for Anthony Joshua would be, on Friday he and Eddie Hearn left nothing to the imagination.
Joshua, who had conversations with UFC President Dana White, as committed himself to Matchroom Boxing, re-signing for three more years with the promotional company.
“When I decided to become a professional boxer, I felt the boxing market was stagnating and in need of new energy,” Joshua said in a press release.
“Both Matchroom and Sky have backed me and have given me opportunity after opportunity, and I will always deliver. They’ve worked very hard to give me a platform to showcase my skills and tell my story, so choosing to renew our deal was always a matter of when, not if.”
“I am delighted to extend our promotional agreement with Anthony and also extend his relationship with Sky Sports,” Hearn said. “Anthony is a huge part of the Matchroom family and we have been with him from the debut to unifying the world heavyweight titles. He is the biggest star in the sport and we look forward to more success, more iconic nights and seeing him become undisputed heavyweight champion.”
