Early Retirement Isn’t Happening – Anthony Joshua

Popular boxer, Anthony Joshua has come out to say that he’ll keep on fighting in the ring despite losing his rematch to Oleksandr Usyk.

This is coming after a number of boxing pundits and professionals, including former WBO cruiserweight champion Johnny Nelson, suggested Joshua could retire from the sport after his loss over the weekend.

The 32-year-old British-Nigerian boxer and his promoter Hearn have insisted that an early retirement isn’t a possibility, so people should stop pinning that on him.

Joshua added that he is still ready to be fighting anyone and everyone to prove his worth as a boxer.

His words, “I spoke to Eddie and asked him if it’s possible to get out in November because momentum is important in boxing. Eddie said December.”

“If it’s about who I fight, it’s come one, come all. Whoever wants it can get it, I don’t mind.”

Hearn added, “People talked in the build-up about him retiring.”

“When you lose a split decision to the pound-for-pound number one, why would you contemplate retirement?”

“It’s about passion. It’s about if you still want it. You could see how much he wanted it by his post-fight interview.”

“I’d like to see him back out. Maybe even in late December.”

“There’s massive fights for him. Dillian Whyte, Deontay Wilder.”

“There’s so many fights for him in the top (10). There’s even some Brits for him that are coming through in a couple of fights as well.”

“We’ve just got to see what he wants to do. It’s going to be a tough, tough defeat to take but he’ll be back.”
