Boxing’s heavyweight division has entered an unstable state with rumors coming from all directions. Amid these heavy rumors, former unified heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua took to social media to turn down all hustling speculations of him taking 15 million euros to give way to undisputed heavyweight title clash.

In the video that surfaced on social media platforms, ‘AJ‘ boldly denied any contract. He said, “You know what’s bad about all these interviews I see. I see certain interviews that quote what I said and I think to myself, I ain’t done no interviews. Where did this person get this information from? I’m hearing people saying ‘AJ’ accepts 15 million to step aside. I ain’t signed no contract.”
