Boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn has stated that Anthony Joshua will fight in America in the next 12 months.

Hearn has also stated that the undefeated WBA and IBF heavyweight champion will box around the globe, provided he defends his belt successfully against Joseph Parker.

The promoter believes Joshua does not have to leave UK to be a star, but will do so if he wants to become a global star.

“As a heavyweight world champion and a major star in world boxing, [Joshua] should box over here at some stage,” Hearn told Sky Sports.

“There’s always been that myth really that in boxing you have to crack America, but I don’t see why.

 

“Look at what we are doing in the UK, look at the spectacles we are creating, [Joshua] is very happy boxing in the UK.

“I just think it’s a natural progression to fight in other countries and he wants to break down boundaries as well and part of that should be boxing in America, Africa, the Middle and Far East, but right now he is very comfortable doing what he’s doing.

 

“I am not sure if the US is imminent but I would expect him to box in America in the next 12 months.”
