With there still to be an official announcement that Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko will have a second fight, speculation that there could be an all-British showdown between Joshua and Tyson Fury has reared its head again.

However, someone who knows the fight game very well, Evander Holyfield, has had a few words to say about which direction Anthony Joshua?s career should be heading, remarking to the media,

?Joshua has to think about his image. He doesn?t need to be against someone like Fury who jokes a lot and is seen in a different light.

?Joshua has talked about becoming the first billionaire fighter and if he is serious then he will need the big-name fights.

?And Fury really isn?t one of those for Joshua.?

Holyfield also admitted to being surprised that Joshua beat Wladimir Klitschko and had a few words of wisdom when it comes to a possible re-match, further adding,

?It would be a bona-fide re-match, but Joshua has to avoid starting to have an ego.

?He must avoid thinking ?I don?t have to work as hard this time, I?ve proved I can beat him and I can do it again.?

Wise words from a ring legend I?d say.
