Junior Fa Offered To Fight Joshua On June 1st
While only ranked eighth by the WBO, undefeated heavyweight Junior Fa has offered to step up and face Anthony Joshua on June 1st at Madison Square Garden.
“I can’t believe Miller has missed this massive opportunity,” stated Fa, who has knocked out 10 of his 17 opponents. “I’m fit and ready to face Joshua! I’m here, right now in the USA sparring WBC heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder.”
“I get it, Matchroom are looking for an American opponent for Anthony’s debut fight in NYC,” Fa continued. “But what’s even more shocking than Miller failing his test is all the big names not ready to take a fight with 7 weeks notice.”
“I don’t make excuses and I don’t need 3 months notice like other fighters. I’m ready to go now! I’ve fought in the USA three times. I’m undefeated, world rated and carry two wins in the amateurs over Joseph Parker plus I have an iconic New Yorker as my promoter in Lou DiBella. Mr Hearn give Lou a call!”
In the original article written by Boxing Scene, Brendan Bourke, head of DiBella Entertainment’s Asia Pacific division commented that DAZN is only looking for an American opponent to headline against Joshua in his United States debut.
Junior Fa concluded “End of the day Joshua is the guy I’m targeting. It doesn’t matter if it’s June 1 or sometime next year. I’ve sparred many rounds with Anthony, and his team know I’m a dangerous mobile heavyweight puncher and that’s probably not what they’re looking for right now considering he’s been training for a basic walk up fighter.”
