Nigerian-born heavyweight champion of the world Anthony Joshua, has dealt a blow to the possibility of a rematch with Wladimir Klitschko, telling the Ukrainian to go hang up his gloves instead.
The Ukrainian former heavyweight king who is keen on triggering a rematch clause in the deal had his bubbles burst after AJ said he would like to see the former great Ukrainian step aside with his head held high..
AJ told fans during a Q&A in London;
“If I was Wladimir I would fight again, the type of fight it was, he probably thinks he can beat me and he has nothing to lose,”
“If I was in his position I would fight again but I’m not Wladimir and I do not know what he wants to do.
“But, if I was speaking to Wladimir, I would say, ‘mate, it was a phenomenal performance, you were very good, but you did not win. Leave on a high and let the other guys do what they’re doing.’”
