The former two-time unified heavyweight champion is in the rebuilding phase of his career, after losing three out of his last five fights, including two to Oleksandr Usyk. The boxer is also considering a training camp move to the United States for a change of scenery.
His promoter, Eddie Hearn is planning a ring return for Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) with a date of April 1. The likely opponent is durable contender Jermaine Franklin.
“It won’t be hard to find an opponent to fight me,” Joshua told IFL TV.
Should Joshua get through his return fight, he wants to jump straight to the top of the division once again with a big fight.
“(Fury) or (Deontay) Wilder in 2023. Both of them will be a good night and a hard night’s work. But yeah, 2023 is (Fury or Wilder – or potentially both.”
Joshua has long been in discussions to face Wilder and Fury throughout the years.
