Anthony Joshua: Dillian Whyte, Deontay Wilder, then Tyson Fury is dream scenario | ‘I can beat them all’ | Boxing News

Anthony Joshua has exclusively revealed to Sky Sports his dream scenario would be to fight Dillian Whyte, Deontay Wilder and then Tyson Fury in the heavyweight division. 

Joshua announced his heavyweight rematch against Whyte at The O2 in London on August 12, and the former world champion admitted his annoyance an undisputed bout with Fury did not take place.

“I’m not disappointed. That’s just the reality that we live in. That’s the reality,” Joshua told Sky Sports.

“Unfortunately it didn’t happen, but I’m not disappointed because we know why. People are starting to see.

“This is just how boxing goes sometimes. People are just…it’s just a shame.

“But it is what it is, none of my business. If that was me, I would have gone in there and fought, but it’s not me so I can’t really comment on another man’s decisions.

Joshua took on a new trainer in Derrick James this year, and called James “a serious trainer” in Monday’s press conference with Whyte.

“What I meant by that is, just make sure you’re ready to work when you come to the gym,” Joshua explained to Sky Sports.

“Like he knows what his standards are. He’s called his gym World Class Boxing Gym. What a name! He’s got a standard, and it’s challenging.

“Yeah, he’s a serious guy. Very serious guy.

“I did what I had to do, but earlier there was a period where I was trying different coaches and ended up fighting a good fighter in Usyk during that trial and error phase, but everything is for a reason in this universe, so I’ve got to trust my process.”

Of Whyte, Joshua said his long-time adversary was operating in the top 15 of the heavyweight division.

“Dillian fights with pride. He’s fighting for his pride. And I think that’s got him really far,” he said.

“And the thing is he is a tough competitor. People try and separate the gulf in class so far that they forget that these guys still have a lot of talent and are dangerous.

“Dillian is one of the top heavyweights in the division. He’s top 10, top 15, that’s serious. You’re fighting the best.

“You’ve got to be serious because even in the top 15 and heavyweight boxing, it takes one punch. So being a top 15 is one punch away from being No 1.”
