AJ'S 5 YEAR PLAN ? ????@anthonyfjoshua says he is "coming towards the end of my career" and hints about retiring in five years— Sky Sports Boxing (@SkySportsBoxing) January 7, 2021
Joshua won the heavyweight titles back from Andy Ruiz Jr in 2019, and since then has defended them against Kubrat Pulev in stunning fashion.
"I'm not someone who lives in the moment and thinks that everything is just like for now. I'm always planning ahead so I'm coming towards the end of my career.
"Five years left and that's basically an Olympic cycle. I've got an Olympic cycle and a little bit more left, so when you see the next Olympics happen is when I'll be coming to the end of my career and the next generation will be coming through."
Joshua is hoping to face Tyson Fury in a winner takes all fight, to fully unify the heavyweight division.
