Anthony Joshua plans to switch to WWE after his boxing career is over
World heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua has declared that he is keen to make an appearance
in WWE in the future
Joshua 31, wants to follow in the footsteps of Muhammad Ali. Ali made his name in boxing long before he
appeared at WrestleMania I in 1985.
Explaining his reasoning, Joshua “I’m gonna do WWE because that’s what Muhammad Ali did, so I’m gonna
do WWE,” he said on the Alternative Sport podcast, via Wrestling Inc.
Ali took on WWE Hall of Famer Antonio Inoki in 1976. The somewhat bizarre contest ended in a draw.
He would go on to appear in WrestleMania I as a special guest referee and featured in a 1994 episode of WCW.
A long list of boxing stars have switched to WWE including Floyd Mayweather and Tyson Fury.
WBC champion Fury secured a win on his wrestling debut in Saudi Arabia in 2019.
The Gypsy King – who is close to agreeing on a fight with AJ – KO’d Braun Strowman with a huge punch at Crown.
Jewel. Joshua seems to already have the move planned out in his head.
When asked what his choice of ring entrance music would be, he confirmed that he had two songs in mind.
These were ‘Shut Up’ by Stormzy, or ‘Push it to the Limit’ from the hit movie Scarface. Joshua previously
used the former track for his grudge match with Dillian Whyte back in 2015.
Speaking last month, he told Sky Sports: “This isn’t the start of my career. I’m coming towards the end of
my career. “I’m not someone who lives in the moment and thinks that everything is just like for now.
“I’m always planning so I’m coming towards the end of my career.
