Anthony Joshua, heavyweight champion, has dropped hints of his retirement plans. The 31-year-old admitted that he was coming towards the end of his career. He added that he has a maximum of “five years left” in boxing before retiring. The Nigerian-British is currently holding negotiations about two unification fights against Tyson Fury in 2021. This could be the most significant period of his career. “This isn’t the start of my career. I’m coming towards the end of my career,” Joshua told Sky Sports News. “I’m not someone who lives in the moment and thinks that everything is just like for now. I’m always planning ahead so I’m coming towards the end of my career.
“Five years left and that’s basically an Olympic cycle. I’ve got an Olympic cycle and a little bit more left. So when you see the next Olympics happen is when I’ll be coming to the end of my career and the next generation will be coming through”, Anthony Joshua said.
