The IBF world heavyweight Charles Martin is so confident of beating the British Champion Anthony Joshua on April 9 that he has set his sights on a unification fight with Tyson Fury.
The Irishman, the WBO and IBO heavyweight champion, rose to the stardom after defeating Wladimir Klitschko on November 28, he is now expected to face the Ukrainian in a rematch very soon.
The 27-year-old fighter recently said that the American would cause Anthony Joshua serious problems, and tips Martin to defeat Joshua.
At this point of time it is hard to say who will come on top as both Martin (23 wins -0) and Joshua (15 wins -0) are still undefeated in their respective careers, but whoever comes on top is likely to face Fury.
The American boxer was talking to boxingscene.com, said: “That fight would be major, that would be really, really big. He is over there in the UK too and he has a lot of fans and he has his greatness. I take my hat off to him, I hear he even has me favourite in this fight.”
Referencing to Fury, who favours him to beat AJ, further added: “Right now I am lifting him and he [Tyson] is lifting me, Tyson keeps on winning and I am going to keep on winning. We would probably make like $15million (£10.5m). I am not focused on nothing but the task at hand, which is AJ, but that would be really big.”
Although confidence is a good thing but overconfidence can be deadly for Martin, his main objective should remain Anthony Joshua, who will be fighting in front on his fans at the O2 Arena, London on April 9.
