Anthony Joshua Teases Fans Over His Next Fight – ‘Finished My Negotiations’

Anthony Joshua says his next fight is close ahead of a September 21 bout at Wembley.

Joshua is in impressive form. He has stopped Otto Wallin and then Francis Ngannou in his last bout. The improvement in form came after he teamed up with Ben Davidson to banish the memories of the Oleksandr Usyk losses. Daniel Dubois is the leading contender to take this fight.

Dubois has stopped Jarrell Miller and then Filip Hrgovic in his last fight to become the IBF Interim Heavyweight Champion. A victory for Joshua makes him mandatory for Usyk, who became the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion with a split decision win over Tyson Fury.

Joseph Parker is also another possibility. Joshua won their only clash in 2018 to become the WBO Heavyweight Champion of the World. Parker has bounced back from that loss since teaming up with Andy Lee. Victories over Deontay Wilder and Zhilei  Zhang made him the WBO Interim Heavyweight Champion. This fight would allow Joshua to become mandatory for Usyk or Fury.

Zhilei Zhang could also throw his name into the hat. The Chinese lost their only clash in 2012 at the London Olympics. Zhang has just had the biggest win of his career by knocking out Wilder in the fifth round. That was the perfect response to the Joseph Parker defeat. Joshua has now teased his fans, with an announcement expected soon.
