"The only thing I want": Joshua made unexpected comments about the Usik - Fury fight and gave his prediction
Former two-time world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (27-3, 24 KOs) favors Ukrainian Oleksandr Usik (21-0, 14 KOs) in a fight with British Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs). At the same time, the Watford native admitted that he would like his compatriot to win the fight on February 17 to be able to fight him and take all the belts of the division.
Joshua said this in an interview with Sky News after the announcement of his fight with Francis Ngannou (0-1, 0 KOs), which will take place on March 8. According to the British boxer, he doesn't care who wins the fight between Usik and Fury, but it is indeed a highly anticipated and intriguing fight, from which he wished both of them to come out without injury.
"I think it will be a good fight. I don't care about the result. I just want them to be healthy. It's a tough fight. So, the only thing I want is for them to leave the ring healthy. But I think Usik has the advantage. Good luck to both of them. But I would probably prefer to fight Tyson Fury. I think it's the best fight for the fans and for me," said Joshua.
