Anthony Joshua Running Away from Wilder, Fury Bouts- Lennox Lewis
Former world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis has stated that he does not believe that current IBF, WBA and WBO champion Anthony Joshua wants to face potential opponents Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury
Both fighters fought themselves to a standstill in an entertaining bout and the former heavyweight champion believes that they would be better served having a rematch as Anthony would not fight them.
“I think they should have a rematch. Anthony Joshua can wait,” Lewis told CompuBox TV.
“He doesn’t want any of those guys. When he’s seen that fight he was like ‘wow, these guys can box’. He’s at a place in his career in boxing – obviously he can make the decisions.
“His decision is not to fight any of them at this moment.”
Both Wilder and Fury have been touted as potential opponents for the British/Nigerian fighter who looks like he’d be fighting next in April
Lewis insinuated that Anthony Joshua would rather fight at home in England in front of the British crowd to protect himself
“I don’t think he will come over here [to the USA] quite now,” said Lewis.
“I think he’s too happy in England being protected and boxing in front of the British crowds.”
