Recently it was reported that the UFC might make a big splash in the boxing world, by offering Anthony Johnson a massive deal, and now the star’s responded.
Recently The Telegraph relayed that the UFC could be prepared to offer Joshua a deal in the $500 million range, as part of the company’s move into boxing. The news turned heads throughout combat sports, and in a follow up media call Joshua said this (quote via MMA Fighting):
“We’ll listen, and 100 percent if it makes sense, we’re all in,” Joshua said. “So I’m happy that Dana’s coming into the game, hopefully we can add some excitement and we can progress forward and make some more money and make some good fights.”
Joshua also said that is current management and team is open to working with other companies, so, maybe we’ll see the British fighter competing under the Zuffa Boxing banner at some point?
The heavyweight champ is scheduled to fight Joseph Parker in Cardiff, Wales, this Saturday.
