Anthony Joshua Lists 7 fighters He Could Face Before He Retires.

The World Heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua lists seven fighters he could face before he hangs up his gloves.

Joshua, the Nigerian-born British champion is due to defend his three belts against Kubrat Pulev this summer.

Originally slated for June 20, the clash has been delayed due to the coronavirus crisis which has wiped out the global sports calendar.

But in the event of a successful title defence, Joshua has set his sights on a slew of heavyweight rivals.

In an interview with Sky Sports, He was asked who he could face, he said: “(Oleksandr) Usyk, (Deontay) Wilder, (Tyson) Fury, (Luis) Ortiz.

“Who else? I think that’s probably the majority. Adam Kownacki, Jarrell Miller… you know, that’s six names.”

Joshua went on to add Dillian Whyte to the mix having beaten his compatriot in 2015.

“I know he’s been chasing a world title shot. I offered him a world title shot last year in April, he refused it.

“Maybe he wants his hand on the WBC, but when me and Tyson Fury fought, then I knew he didn’t want to fight me last year; but he’ll definitely have to fight me this time, if he wants his hands on the WBC belt.

“Once I’ve beaten Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte can come and get this work as well. It won’t be that good, it will be one-sided.”

Joshua and Fury had hoped to clash at the end of the year in a blockbuster battle of Britain, but the pandemic looks to have put paid to that prospect.

Meanwhile, Fury must first defend his own world title against Wilder in their trilogy clash pencilled for later this year.

Rio 2016 champions Brazil were held 0-0 by Cote d’Ivoire in Olympic football on Sunday while Egypt and South Africa lost to Argentina and France respectively.

Germany, France and Spain also claimed first victories, and hosts Japan are the only side with the maximum points.

Coming off an opening 4-2 win over the Germans in a rematch of the Rio final from five years ago, Brazil found no opening against their African opponents.

They even had Douglas Luiz sent off in the 14th minute.

Cote d’Ivoire lost Eboue Kouassi with 10 minutes left in the game in Group D which both sides lead on four points apiece.

Germany follow on three after a tense 3-2 victory over Saudi Arabia, with Felix Uduokhai scoring a 75th-minute winner although team-mate Amos Pieper was sent off eight minutes earlier.

Japan meanwhile improved to maximum six points in Group A from a 2-1 win against 10-man 2012 gold medallists Mexico who have three points.

Mexico are just as France who came from behind three times in a late 4-3 win over South Africa.

Teji Savanier scored a stoppage-time winner after Andre-Pierre Gignac levelled three times for a hat-trick he completed in the 86th minute.

Rigobert Rivas gave Honduras a late 3-2 victory against New Zealand in Group B where all four teams have three points.

South Korea won the other game 4-0 against Romania, with a brace from Valencia’s Lee Kang In.

Spain moved top of Group C with four points past Australia from a 1-0 against them, thanks to Mikel Oyazabal’s 81st-minute winner.

They finish on Wednesday against Argentina who got their first points in a 1-0 against Egypt.
