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 .
“ He was here a couple of weeks ago . He loves to fight , to box and it ’ s not just about fighting in a huge arena – Wembley Stadium , Madison Square Garden – it’ s about boxing .
“ We want him to be in front of crowds . But for his career, for his development, he needs to fight this year . ”
Joshua , who has also reached an agreement for two fights with fellow Briton Tyson Fury , was originally scheduled to fight Kubrat Pulev in June , but the bout was postponed because of coronavirus .
“ Of course fighters want to earn as much money as possible but they also need to develop as fighters and I think the Kubrat Pulev fight is a good , solid , tough fight for him and I am almost certain you will see that fight this year .
“ He wants to improve as a fighter and he will do it anywhere , anytime . ”
