Tottenham Hotspur: Fans react to reports Anthony Joshua could fight at stadium - Tottenham

Anthony Joshua could be set for a homecoming fight at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium following his win over Andy Ruiz Jnr, that is according to a report from The Mirror.

The heavyweight boxer bounced back from his defeat to Ruiz in June by winning their rematch in Saudi Arabia on points, with two judges scoring it 118-110, whilst the other gave it 119-109.

It means that the 30-year-old has reclaimed the IBF, WBA and WBO titles and gives him a record of 23 wins with just one defeat (BoxRec).

Attention now turns to the boxer who Joshua could fight next and where that will take place and, according to promoter Eddie Hearn, it could well be Spurs’ brand new stadium that hosts the bout.

“Tottenham Hotspur is a nice new stadium for a UK fight and we’re having a look at that,” Hearn said (via The Mirror).

“We have spoken to Spurs about doing it and they were very keen to host the Ruiz fight, but the dates did not work out.

“They are very keen again and it would be a nice London stadium to do it in.”

Plenty of Spurs fans have been reacting to this news and several have been quite cynical, suggesting that it is great news for Daniel Levy who will make plenty of money from a fight being held at the stadium.

Here is what some fans said on Twitter…
