Mike Tyson says 'sky is limit' for Anthony Joshua

Anthony Joshua's win over Wladimr Klitschko to become the unified world heavyweight champion has painted a target on his back with many boxers gunning for him, including Tyson Fury.

Joshua produced a remarkable recovery, to floor Klitschko in the 11th round of an epic heavyweight world title fight at Wembley Stadium.

It was almost two Klitschkos in one evening for Anthony Joshua at Wembley.

"I always said Wladimir would be my easiest fight, now I'm changing the goal posts", he said.

Joshua has a score to settle after Whyte defeated him as an amateur and nearly suffered another defeat before showing his class to knock him out in the seventh round of a title fight back in December 2015.

"Wilder has a mandatory and I don't know what's the status of Joshua". He will make his decision very quickly when you get back, no later than the beginning of June. That's it. He's got no footwork, no speed and no stamina neither. And I was just waiting in front of him. A lot of people have picked AJ to beat me, but I've said many times that we are in a sport called "the sweet science" and it's not a bodybuilding contest or a strongman competition. Even if he is too old, which I think he is, he's in a good place mentally and that's a risky fighter. It is what it is. Hearn told Boxing News, "It's one of the best fights I've seen, everyone wants to see it again".

Fury was stripped of the IBF belt soon after beating Klitschko for not fighting a mandatory challenger. A rematch never happened as both men had injuries that postponed the fight numerous times.

Fury is set to find out this week the verdict on the UK Anti-Doping investigation into an alleged failed drug test. Fury is now in the process of appealing the suspension.
