Eddie Hearn in front of the boxing ring he has had constructed in his back garden – complete with canopy and spotlights
World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will fight “anywhere, anytime”, says his promoter Eddie Hearn.
The British boxer, 30, has not fought since he regained his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles from Andy Ruiz Jr last December due to Covid-19.
Hearn has erected a ring in the grounds of his Essex estate in a bid to resurrect the sport for an event dubbed ‘Fight Camp’.
“Joshua would fight here [at Hearn’s home], no problem,” Hearn said.
“If we were faced with the option of having no fans for an Anthony Joshua fight, we would still look to go ahead. He’s spent a lot of time training out here in this garden so he would have no problem fighting here himself. (BBC)
