Unified heavyweight champion Anthony says that he would welcome the possibility of fighting Tyson Fury at Wembley Stadium if government restrictions eventually allowed for a capacity crowd.
Promoter Eddie Hearn has previously claimed that the all-Brit undisputed heavyweight showdown is likely to land abroad due to site fees elsewhere, but ‘AJ’ insists that it would be “brilliant” for the local community to see the fight in London.
“I would welcome Tyson Fury to that [a Wembley fight]. I would welcome him to that all day,” Joshua told Sky Sports News. “It’s brilliant for the kids of the local areas to come down. It’s like half an hour drive, a couple of hours’ drive for some of them.
“It’s a brilliant opportunity to have it here as well, but the government have got to do right by the people and protect us from this virus. I understand the situation that the country is in. I think the possibilities of it being in this country are down to the pandemic, and how that shapes up.
“I feel, for me, I’m not too fussed where it is. I just want to get the fight, because there’s so much variables, and so much for me to look at. Where is it going to be? Is he going to take the fight? Have I got a mandatory?
“I’ve just stripped it all back now and stopped dealing with that stuff. I’ve just said, ‘Let me just fight Tyson Fury wherever it is, whatever time it is.'”
