Anthony Joshua Will Not Fight on Mayweather vs McGregor Duel

Written By: SD Reporter


That’s what Anthony Joshua said to Floyd Mayweather back in May, but there is almost no chance of the two-belt World Heavyweight champion fighting in Las Vegas next month.

Mayweather takes on Conor McGregor in one of the most talked about fights in history on August 26, just three months before Joshua’s expected rematch with Wladimir Klitschko.

That fight has been pencilled in for Saturday November 11 in Las Vegas, in what will be Joshua’s first appearance on the American stage.

The likelihood that Joshua would put that fight with Klitschko, or his belts, on the line for an undercard appearance would be unthinkable, regardless of how lucrative it could be.

The current record was set by Mayweather’s fight with Manny Pacquiao in 2015, which amassed $400m (£315m).This year’s bout in Las Vegas is expected to eclipse that.
