Having recently won the WBO heavyweight title after out-pointing New Zealand’s Joseph Parker, Anthony Joshua – also the holder of IBF, IBO and WBA belts – is likely to face either mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin or WBC champion Deontay Wilder next.

But, the Brit has found a new challenger, it seems.

Johann Duhaupas of France, the 14th-ranked heavyweight, has called out Joshua by claiming that he can ‘embarrass’ Joshua by ending his unbeaten streak.

“Joshua is full of confidence right now, and he feels he is the best. In terms of absolute self-confidence, he is the best,” Duhaupas told boxingnewsonline.net in an exclusive interview.

“But I would really like to face him because I know I can embarrass him enormously,” he added.

Duhaupas, who holds a 37-4 (24 KOs) record, is currently gearing up for a bout against unbeaten American Jarrell Miller 20-0 (18 KOs) in Brookly on April 28.

No wonder, Duhaupas needs to put his best foot forward and beat Miller to ever stand a chance to fight Joshua.
