Nigerian-British professional boxer, Anthony Joshua has reacted to the possibility of a meeting between him and either of heavyweights, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.

Anthony Joshua told Sky Sports that he is ready for a fight with either of them, as he has built himself into the position.

He said “I came up quick. That shows I’m ready. These boys (Fury and Wilder) turned professional in 2008 and it took (Fury) seven years to fight for the heavyweight championship of the world. He’s on a completely different journey.

“I want to steam through. I’ve fought five champions and been in two unification fights. I’m a two-time heavyweight champion in the space of 24 fights and a (seven-year) career. It shows you I am serious.”

While a meeting with Fury – or even Wilder – would be widely regarded as blockbuster events, Joshua added: “These guys aren’t the biggest names that I’ve fought on my record anyway. They are just another heavyweight.

“Look at my record. They are not the best fighters that I have challenged. I’ll challenge Fury, I’ll challenge Wilder. When they are ready, I’m here to fight.

“I haven’t got fear of Fury – whether he’s got a better chin than me, a better jab than me, whether he’s all of this stuff that people say. So be it. Let me go in there and prove myself, show you who I am and what I can do.”
