Tyson: 'It's all about Joshua now - that one fight changed boxing'

Promoters believe Anthony Joshua could go on to be as popular as his hero Muhammad Ali, as they hatch plans to make him one of sport's biggest stars.

"I'm out here for the foreseeable future, running, doing circuits, padwork, sparring", said Fury, who told that a match-up with Joshua had been pencilled in for April 2018.

Wilder was ringside at Wembley during the Joshua-Klitschko encounter, and he told TMZ Sports that the time is finally right for a showdown between him and Joshua. That is what makes boxing big, it is the heavyweights.

Tyson Fury insists he will take on Anthony Joshua without a warm-up fight and would beat him with "one arm tied behind my back".

"It was a great fight. As long as Rob (McCracken, Joshua's trainer) thinks it is good I'm good to go".

"Joshua is still just a baby with 19 fights, it took me 28 fights to become world champion". In the 11th, Joshua unloaded a bone-jarring right uppercut that almost severed Klitschko's head from his neck.

Joshua earned $15 million from the Klitschko fight and now stands to earn more on the strength of the dramatic win.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby hit in head vs. Capitals, leaves game
The league could not look at this play and see Niskanen as a reckless player who was trying to hurt the top player in the NHL. Crosby slowly walked to the locker room, and the Penguins said they would not discuss his status until after the game.

"Joshua was massive before the Klitschko fight but that's taken him to another level". And while the former "Baddest Man on the Planet" is a keen follower of the UFC - noting bantamweight champ Cody Garbrandt as one of his favourite fighters to watch - he believes the balance of power is tipping back in boxing's favour.

"Going to keep you all updated on my progress".

"It didn't slip away - I just couldn't be bothered no more".

Elsewhere in the heavyweight division there isn't too much to get excited about according to Tyson, who hopes Joshua avoids facing WBC champion Deontay Wilder in a unification bout. I am not hearing, 'Let's see Fury v (Deontay) Wilder or Wilder v (Joshua) Parker.' It's always, 'We want AJ versus Wilder, Fury and Parker'.

The Brit has paid homage to the boxing icon by purchasing a signed glove, with the framed piece of memorabilia coming complete with a built-in television screen which will allow Joshua to watch back some of Ali's classic moments.

"I see the comparison, sure", Tyson added.

He didn't need to hype it up at this stage, we were already there, and after four intriguing rounds - a bit like Garth getting his first taste of a chicken and grape sarnie (try them, great for wakes) - all hell broke loose in the fifth, Smith telling us they were going to war and "both are swinging big bombs in there".
