After his impressive show in London, the first thing Anthony Joshua does is gets out of the ring and embraces a delighted Floyd Mayweather at ringside.

And then confidently demanded for the mouth-watering showdown with Tyson Fury in 2021. He told Eddie Hearn: “I’ve been chasing the belts since I started this. It’s not about the man, it’s about the belt and the legacy. If it’s Tyson Fury with the WBC belt, then let it be Tyson Fury!”

Eddie Hearn promised to make it happen: “Starting from tomorrow, we’re making the Tyson Fury fight. We will get it done.”

Before AJ’s fight, a certain Nigerian Lawrence Okolie won the WBO international cruiserweight title after defeating Nikodem Jezewski by second round.
