Joshua Hates Prospect Of Being Stripped

With two mandatory challengers on the horizon, unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has a decision to make.

While it seems Kubrat Pulev is the next man to fight Anthony Joshua, Oleksnadr Usyk is waiting in the wings as well and may be the reason Joshua has to vacate one of his belts if the WBO challenger does not step aside willingly.

“I would hate [to vacate a belt] because it’s so hard to go round and collect all these belts, it’s really difficult and I’ve kept hold of them for so many years,” Joshua told Sky Sports.

“So to have to vacate because of the boxing politics would be annoying, but there’s things that are out of my control. If I do lose one, I know I’ll be able to get it back.

“Time moves so fast, it’s easy to forget things. So we just look forward into the new year and more challenges, more competition and hopefully more memorable years to come,” Joshua stated.

“It’s 2020 vision. Whoever’s on the cards will get taken down. I just keep myself focused and whoever wants it can get it.”
