This first installment of the interview focuses on what AJ had to say about Wilder and Fury.
Joshua said: “It’s a great time to be a heavyweight. I’m happy that Fury won. It just changed the whole dimension of the heavyweight division.
“We are fighting for legacy. I need Wilder. I need Fury. I’m ready for them. I’m waiting for them. Come and get some.”
Now into his thirties, Joshua has been at the helm of the top division game for some time now. Those fights with Wilder and Fury are well overdue.
It’s hoped both can happen by the end of 2022 when one sole champion to conquer all will eventually be crowned.
