Joshua targets Tyson Fury


Anthony Joshua is weighing up his options for his next fight after knocking out Dominic Breazale in London on Saturday night.

The IBF heavyweight champion dominated from start to finish against the brave American but after he knocked his opponent to the canvas for a second time in the seventh round, the referee called a halt to the fight.

The 2012 Olympic heavyweight champion extended his record to a perfect 17 wins from 17 fights, all by way of knockout and Breazale was only the second opponent to take Joshua past the third round.

Joshua is due to make a mandatory defence against New Zealand's Joseph Parker but he is looking past him for big money fights.

"I was really looking at Tyson Fury," he said. "I hope he gets better soon, as I was hoping to get that sometime in the winter if everything went well.

"We're going to have to reschedule that and look at other opponents like Parker if he's vacant or anybody else that the people want.

"I need to rest. I'm tired. I'm working hard. And now I can get some rest and recharge my batteries and start afresh again."

Fury was due to defend his WBA, WBO & IBO belts against Wladimir Klitshcko on July 9th but the Manchester fight was forced to postpone the bout after injuring his ankle while training.

The rematch will now take place in October instead.
