31 year old world heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua reveals retirement date

Anthony Joshua admits he is “ coming towards the end of my career ” and has hinted that he will have a maximum of “five years left” in the sport before retiring.

The 31 – year – old world heavyweight champion could be approaching the most significant period of his career , with ongoing negotiations about two massive unification fights against Tyson Fury in 2021 .

Since making his pro debut in 2013 , Joshua has become a two – time champion, having regained his WBA , IBF and WBO titles in a 2019 rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr before defending them with a knockout win over Kubrat Pulev last month.

“ This isn ’ t the start of my career . I’ m coming towards the end of my career , ” Joshua told Sky Sports News.

“ 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 . ”



Fury turned professional in 2008 , nearly five years before Joshua , who recently suggested that his British rival should also be thinking about hanging up his gloves .

“ Fury has been professional much longer than me .

He should be looking to retire soon , ” Joshua had told Sky Sports .

“ If he wants to cement his legacy, I’ m here and ready .

I’ ve built myself into this position . ”

But the 32- year – old Fury told Sky Sports last year that he wanted a lengthy world title reign like Wladimir Klitschko .

“ Klitschko did it until he was 40, ” said Fury who ended the Ukrainian ’ s dominance with a points win in 2015 .
