Anthony Joshua continues to issue challenges to the UFC’s best heavyweights. Will Dana White give in and make it happen?

Since Conor McGregor made the switch over to boxing recently, the whole game has changed. Although he was eventually schooled by Floyd Mayweather, the Irishman has set a new trend.

When asked if he’d be managing anymore UFC vs. boxing crossover fights, UFC president Dana White said no. Citing the large time in planning and manic schedule, White said this was a ‘one and done’ show.

Apparently, everybody else didn’t get that memo. Even before Mayweather vs. McGregor, everybody was trying to get on the money train. Among the most notable fighters was boxing heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua.

Claiming he’d beat Stipe Miocic in the ring or octagon, Joshua brought out some rarely seen trash talk. Miocic responded, but Dana White appeared to show no interest in the fight happening…

Anthony Joshua is back, and his latest warning indicates he’s already been training some kickboxing or Muay Thai…

Joshua Says He Can Slap & Elbow The UFC’s Best

According to Joshua during his interview with The Daily Star, he’s planning all kinds of violence against the UFC heavyweight division:

“I’ll still smash up those UFC fighters if I wanted. You can’t talk to me like that. I’ll give them a slap,” he told the Daily Star.

“I’m a fighter, you don’t just call people out recklessly,” said the London 2012 gold medallist. “I’m not a UFC fighter – I can’t put you in a submission – but I know how to throw my legs, I know how to use my elbows and I know how to punch people. “That’s my only disadvantage, the submissions, but I’ll throw it down, for sure.”

Responding recently, among many others, was former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos:

Junior dos Santos Responds

“I would love to have a boxing match,” said Junior Dos Santos, speaking before his fight for the UFC heavyweight title against Stipe Miocic back in May.

“Since I’m going to be the UFC heavyweight champion and there can be only one toughest man on the planet, I would like to fight Anthony Joshua. Champion against champion. It would be sensational.”

Miocic, as usual, is just up for fighting anyone:


Joshua goes on to say everything but submissions would be fair game. Perhaps a mixed rules MMA fight?

“I like fighting, I’d do whatever. The only thing that they can’t do is submissions but they can kick, elbow, bite – whatever they want,” Joshua said.

“I can’t beat a guy [via submission]. That takes a lot of time to learn the skills and submissions, which I don’t have the time for, but when it comes to pure aggression and fighting rules, I can definitely fight, so I don’t mind that.”

“It wouldn’t be a problem,”

Watch this space as far as Joshua’s potential MMA future is concerned. There’s no shortage of game UFC heavyweights who’d welcome him to the octagon.

  1. This is stupid. Thanks McGregor for giving birth to a bunch of clowns who just want a pay check and be relevant.
