 I don’t duck a challenge, I’ve signed to fight Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder before

Anthony Joshua will fight mixed martial arts star Francis Ngannou on Friday March 8, live on Sky Sports Box Office; Although bouts with Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder ultimately fell through, Joshua points out that he has previously agreed to those fights, saying: “I don’t duck!”

Anthony Joshua does not shirk a challenge.

He will be a significant favourite when he boxes mixed martial arts star Francis Ngannou on March 8,

Throughout his career though Joshua has taken on a sequence of elite opponents, from Wladimir Klitschko to Oleksandr Usyk, with Joseph Parker, Alexander Povetkin and many more in between.

But glaring omissions from Joshua’s CV are American puncher Deontay Wilder and British rival Tyson Fury.

Joshua however points out that even though bouts with those opponents never came to fruition, for his part he has previously agreed to fight both men.
