If you think we are done with epic heavyweight rematches, then you need to think twice. WBC Heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury are going to lock their horns once again on February 22, 2020, and Wilder has expressed his urge to unify all the heavyweight titles. So, Anthony Joshua has his hands on the WBA (super), WBO, IBF and IBF titles, while the winner of Wilder vs Fury is going to be pitted against the WBC Heavyweight. Thus, a fight between Anthony Joshua and the winner of Wilder vs Fury totally makes sense at this point of time. Both, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury predicted Anthony Joshua’s loss at Clash on the Dunes but the Briton proved that he is way ahead of such predictions.
Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr are 1-1 on head-to-head record and a rubber match between them will be massive. Apart from the classified heavyweight titles, both the fighters have earned a good amount of cash from their last two fights and they would love to repeat it. It is a fan favourite fight for sure and we can expect Andy Ruiz Jr and Anthony Joshua to run it back for one more time.
