Anthony Joshua says he doesn’t mind where he faces Tyson Fury and insists when the long-trumpeted mega-fight does eventually take place he will prove himself to be ‘the boss’.
Talks are continuing for a two-bout series between WBA Super, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Joshua and WBC king Fury – with a deal reportedly close to agreement.
Joshua expects the first clash in June and is keen to prove his supremacy wherever it takes place, with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Dubai, Singapore, China and America among the possible locations in light of the current Covid-19 restrictions.
“[The pandemic] is getting close to things being normal. We’re working on a date for around June. So, if Tyson is serious, which I think he is, he’ll know where to come and find the boss!” Joshua told Sky News.
“I’m ready. I’m really looking forward to competition – all I want to do is fight, fight, fight! Any option. Home turf, Middle East, my back garden, your back garden. I don’t mind where it is.
“I’m just ready to fight. I want that belt. I want to compete with Fury so all options are open to me.”
