It is the fight everyone is talking about and now it’s Anthony Joshua’s turn to chime in. Floyd Mayweather Jr versus Conor McGregor has divided the combat sports world into two separate camps. For and against. Joshua feels that as long as people are talking about it – everyone’s a winner.

“As long as people are talking about combat sports, everyone’s winning. Listen, it’s all about audience, isn’t it? That’s how our sports survive is through the audience. We don’t have leagues or federations. We don’t have a UEFA. The support is what makes the sport. People are talking about combat sport – Let’s get it on. I think it’s a good thing,” said Joshua in an interview with IFL.TV.

The heavyweight boxing champion says despite the fact that Mayweather is the heavy favourite, millions will tune in no matter what.

“Mayweather is likely going to win. If you’re a betting man, you don’t bet against the house. But you never know in sport. That’s why people watch it because it’s unpredictable. People will want to see Mayweather win and McGregor lose but some people will also want to see McGregor win and Mayweather lose. Millions of people will tune in and I’m one of them,” told Joshua.

Many people have obviously given McGregor no chance against Mayweather. Joshua is not one of them.

“As a champion, the worst thing you can do is underestimate your opponent. Everyone poses a threat. You have to prepare, So yeah – I give him a chance,” he said.

UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic called out Joshua a couple of times on social media with hopes of fighting him on the same card. Joshua says he is not interested in cross-sport fights, instead wants to focus solely on boxing.

“Right now it’s all boxing for me.”
