De La Hoya Thinks A Joshua-Wilder Fight Is A Toss-Up

Anthony Joshua is the cornerstone of a heavyweight revival, according to Golden Boy Promotions CEO, Oscar De La Hoya.

And while Deontay Wilder may disagree with the notion of Joshua being the standard bearer, with over 100,000 tickets sold in 2017, Joshua is certainly the biggest drawing card in heavyweight boxing, and De La Hoya told Sky sports that the sky is the limit.

“I love Anthony Joshua. He’s a great fighter. I believe Anthony Joshua is reviving the heavyweight division. He’s the man. And I believe Anthony Joshua can become a superstar on a global scale,” De La Hoya told Sky Sports.

And with Joseph Parker awaiting Joshua, many in the boxing community are looking ahead to an upcoming United States debut for the British born boxer, which will not be against Deontay Wilder, but against Jarrell Miller.

De La Hoya does believe a Wilder-Joshua fight needs to happen and that the fight won’t be an easy one to pick.

“It’s a pick’em fight. I believe that it’s a 50-50 fight. But the fact that Anthony Joshua is only getting better, he’s only getting stronger, he’s only getting faster – the sky is the limit for Anthony Joshua and I can’t wait to see him in the U.S..”
