Anthony Joshua asks Manchester United to sign another Roy Keane to challenge Liverpool

Anthony Joshua has been a sensation in the boxing world lately. Defending his WBA, IBF, and WBO heavyweight titles against Kubrat Pulev. In addition to his love for boxing, Anthony Joshua loves football as well. And the champ was recently giving off some tips for Manchester United.

Anthony Joshua insists United need to sign a player like Roy Keane. The former United midfielder is respected for his no-nonsense attitude both on and off the pitch. There were times when derby games were more like war, unlike recent times. And Keane was like a commanding officer for the Red Devils.

Manchester United will need the same kind of flare if they are to match Liverpool, according to Anthony. United had a bad start to the season and also did not qualify into the UCL last 16. However, Ole Gunnar seems to be getting things under control again. But it does seem like United will benefit if they sign a player with the same flare as Roy Keane.

United was able to secure big wins in their last two games. Crushing Leeds United into a 6-2 defeat on Sunday and winning 2-0 against Everton yesterday. Ole will be hoping to keep up with this momentum. They sit third in the Premier League table after 13 games and will face Leicester City tomorrow.

The boxing world is now introducing a new trend where celebrities come into the ring for a fight. Fans are hyping at the idea of non-professional boxers facing off against champions. And one such fight is the bout between YouTube fame Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather. Millions of fans are waiting for the fight to happen.

Hence, it won’t be long before we see some of the footballing aces step into the ring as well. Imagine a fight between Adama Traore and Floyd Mayweather. The spectator list will go off the charts for such about. But Anthony Joshua has a different name in mind for his match against a non-professional.

. The 49-year-old is fierce as a boxer in the Sky Sports studios during match reviews. Anthony feels that Keane will do great in the ring as well. The champ also feels that had Keane taken an interest in boxing instead of football, he might have had a number of titles for himself.

The Sky Sports pundit was a tough opponent on the pitch as well. So having him in boxing gloves won’t be a big shock to many. Keane will just rip through his opponent with ease. If Anthony Joshua is wishing to fight Keane, he must be cautious.

Keane is necessary for United

Anthony Joshua surely knows what he is talking about. Roy Keane was a true leader for United during his time. The former midfielder was a real commanding voice on the ground. Keane was always there for his teammates on and off the pitch. The legendary midfield never let his opponents pick on his teammates.

There’s an instance where Keane went on a rant with Vierra for mistreating Gary Neville. Ole Gunnar’s Manchester United can very well use such a player. United needs a commanding voice in their midst and Ole is hoping to find one.

Although AJ is keen to see Roy Keane in the ring, he is keener to face Tyson Fury. Fury has won numerous heavyweight belts. And Joshua wants to defeat him to become the undisputed champion. Anthony even admits that against Fury is all that he wants in 2021.

Anthony is hoping for Fury to come down and fight him. Joshua has gone up against a number of champs and Fury is another one on his list. Defeating Tyson Fury will make him a true champion and Joshua hopes the day to come soon.
