‘The ball is in his court’: Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury next after dominating comeback win over Jermain Franklin

Anthony Joshua claimed the all-important victory last Saturday after beating Jermaine Franklin by unanimous decision. After the fight, when it came to his future in boxing and who he wants to face if he stays in the game, Joshua asked for some support from the 20,000 or so people in the arena. The crowd, as expected, began chanting Tyson Fury’s name loudly.

Joshua responded to the crowd’s appeal: “British boxing it’s an amazing thing and quite frankly I appreciate every single one of you, no banter. I appreciate each of you very much. I wish I could come over and talk to each of you guys… You know me, I’m trying to cater for the fans, so whatever the fans want, who the fans want, they said Fury?”

I would be 100 percent honored to fight for the WBC World Heavyweight Championship. I’m standing here and saying that proudly, it would be an honor for me. So wherever you are, if you’re listening, you know my management, you know my promoter, we’ve had a dialogue before so hopefully let’s get this done sooner or later. Joshua further added: “We’re not getting any younger! I can’t wait to get back to Texas and move on and move on because there’s a bigger fight ahead. I can’t wait for the next big fight.”
