Anthony Joshua shrugs off Tyson Fury's lineal champion claim

Anthony Joshua shrugs off Tyson Fury's lineal champion claim

Heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua discusses his plans for the future if he defeats Alexander Povetkin and whether Deontay Wilder will be his next opponent.

WBA, IBF and WBO champion Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs) returns to the ring on Sept. 22 when he faces Russian Alexander Povetkin (34-1, 24 KOs) at Wembley Stadium.

Editor's Picks Hearn: Povetkin will be Joshua's toughest opponent since Klitschko Anthony Joshua's upcoming fight with Alexander Povetkin will be his toughest since Wladimir Klitschko, Eddie Hearn has warned.

Meanwhile Fury (27-0, 19 KOs) is likely to face WBC champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) in the U.S. in December.

There is perhaps some frustration that while Fury is fighting Wilder, Joshua is fighting Povetkin instead.
