Joshua responds to Mayweather’s challenge for people to show their authentic lives with a selfie video — like Mayweather’s — taken outside a private jet.
We’re doing the Mayweather challenge. This ain’t my plane. These ain’t my whips…But these are my true friends. That’s all I got! Mayweather challenge, show us how you’re living.
Miocic calls out Joshua for a fight on McGregor-Mayweather undercard. On Mayweather’s recent visit to London, Joshua jokingly asked Mayweather for a place on the fight. However, there is no word of any communication between the fighters and the organisers at this time. Miocic:
[Anthony]’s a world champ for a reason. It would just be amazing. It would be an amazing opportunity. I would just be so grateful….I did Golden Gloves and all that good stuff. I just love the fight. I think it would be a great fight. I think people would love to see it.
Fresh from his title defense over Junior Dos Santos, Miocic says he wants to fight Joshua, and that he is confident he can win.
I think it would be a great fight. He’s an amazing fighter. I think it would be great, something different. I’d love to show what I’ve got. I think he’s an amazing fighter, nothing to take away from him honestly but I think it would be awesome. Conor’s going to do it. It’s great cross promotion, I’d love to be a part of that. I did Golden Gloves and all that good stuff. I just love the fight. I think it would be a great fight. I think people would love to see it. [I’m] super confident. I’m going to go out there and give it all I got. Listen, I’ve got the best coaches in the world and I’d definitely be ready for that fight.
While talking about Mayweather’s upcoming fight with McGregor, Joshua jokes that he wants to be on the undercard.
Get me on the undercard.
Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, confirms that Joshua and Klitschko are likely to fight again before the end of the year.
I believe Klitschko will go ahead with the rematch so we are looking at dates. The Principality Stadium is not really available in November because of rugby so 28 October is the option. Most of December is available but I don’t really want to go that late. Josh has a bit of a sore shoulder, Klitschko has had a tough fight, his face was bashed up. You have got two more weeks in May, all of June and after that they will be thinking ‘right let’s get back in camp’. Even if you started back in camp in August, then you have September and October so end of October can work.
Joshua knocks out Klitschko in the eleventh round at Wembley to retain his world heavyweight title. At one point Joshua looked to be in serious trouble, and was dropped by the Russian in the sixth.
In an interview with Heavyw8 News, Johnson praises McGregor.
I like Conor McGregor, ‘The Notorious’, I wish I took that name. I like it. I like everything about Conor McGregor…I like what he’s doing for the sport of UFC as well and I hope he doesn’t lose because it’s a fickle world. One minute everyone’s on your back, you’re the flavour of the month, you take a loss, everyone writes you off, but he’s done a lot for the sport of the UFC so far. You can’t fault him after losing, it’s how he gets back up and I think so far he’s done unbelievably well for the sport of UFC and I just hope he continues that.
