The 31-year-old world heavyweight champion could be approaching the most significant period of his career, with ongoing negotiations about two massive unification fights against Tyson Fury in 2021.
Heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, has admitted he is “coming towards the end of my career”.
According to him, he will have a maximum of “five years left” in the sport before retiring.
Since making his pro debut in 2013, Joshua has become a two-time champion, having regained his WBA, IBF and WBO titles in a 2019 rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr before defending them with a knockout win over Kubrat Pulev last month.
“This isn’t the start of my career. I’m coming towards the end of my career,” Joshua told NoRM‘s known Media
“I’m not someone who lives in the moment and thinks that everything is just like for now. I’m always planning ahead so I’m coming towards the end of my career.
“Five years left and that’s basically an Olympic cycle. I’ve got an Olympic cycle and a little bit more left, so when you see the next Olympics happen is when I’ll be coming to the end of my career and the next generation will be coming through.”
One thought on “Anthony Joshua speak on when he’d love to retire.”
Shakur Stevenson has said he would love to retire rival Carl Frampton but believes the Northern Irish fighter is frightened of him. The former WBO featherweight champion claimed that Frampton, a former WBA and IBF super-bantamweight and WBA featherweight champion, was scared of meeting him.
