Joshua inks career-long pact with Matchroom

Unified heavyweight champion of the world Anthony Joshua has signed a new career-long promotional deal with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing. Joshua turns 32 next month.

“This is the fourth and final promotional agreement we have signed together, and I am honoured that AJ has confirmed his future with Matchroom,” said Hearn. “Just like we did from the debut, myself and the great team at Matchroom will continue to work relentlessly for Anthony in the many chapters that remain.”

Joshua puts his IBF, WBA, WBO crowns on the line against former undisputed cruiserweight king Oleksandr Usyk at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London this Saturday.

  • Probably the best idea for him. I think he finishes his career with them, but I do not think he finishes it with DAZN

  • He’s 32. He’s not going to be fighting for more than four more years max. I don’t see him going as late as Wladimir did.

  • “Unified heavyweight champion of the world Anthony Joshua…”
    – He is NOT the unified heavyweight champion.

    • He actually is the “unified” heavyweight champion. Unified simply means that he has unified one belt with another one. He has more than one belt, so he’s the unified champion. He’s not the UNDISPUTED champion. That would mean that he’s gotten all of them or the ‘major’ ones at least.
