At age 27, and having recently captured his first world title, Anthony Joshua may already be targeting an exit from the sport. The IBF heavyweight champion says he aims to make his money and fulfill his aspirations in the next few years, and then call it quits.
Joshua maintains that he didn’t get into boxing for the money nor the glory, but that he was simply on a self-development path, to get in shape, when he first made his way into a boxing gym.
"I can finish in five years provided everything goes to plan. One hundred percent I could walk away from boxing now, it's all about being happy, and I'm happy. As long I'm happy that is all that matters. I don't do it for the money, I don't do it for the glory nights."
Joshua is slated to take on Eric Molina this weekend, which by all accounts should prove to be a fairly routine win, and then is slated to take on a big fight against Wladimir Klitschko in April.
