Congolese Boxer Bakole Calls Out Joshua, Fury, Wilder

Congolese Boxer Bakole Calls Out Joshua, Fury, Wilder

Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have been called out by rising heavyweight contender Martin Bakole.

Joshua is still searching for an opponent for his next fight and he has booked out Wembley Stadium for April 13, 2019.

The Brit is hoping to take on the winner of Wilder vs Fury, which is due to take place on December 1.

But the rest of the heavyweight division are vying for their shot at the champion and Scotland’s most successful trainer Billy Nelson reckons Bakole is ready to take on the best.

The Congolese powerhouse will try to defend his IBO Continental heavyweight title against Michael Hunter next weekend but then he wants his career to accelerate tenfold.

“If Martin could have anybody on the planet for the next fight, if it was Wilder, Fury, Joshua – anybody – we would fight them,” Nelson told Express Sport.

“One hundred per cent he is ready right now. I have been involved with a few world champions and I have only lost two world title fights.

“I know what it takes to be a world champion and this guy supersedes any of the guys.
“This guy is above that and a good bit above it.”

Bakole has an impressive professional record of 11-0, of which eight wins have come via knockout.

The hard-hitter has sparred with plenty of boxing greats and Nelson claims his potential has shone through those behind-closed-doors bouts.

“He trained with Anthony Joshua for a month, then we did a month with Hughie Fury and a week with Daniel Dubois,” he added.

“From all I have seen from all the sparring parters Anthony Joshua has had, Martin is the only one that makes him think like a world champion.

“His brain works really hard, as does Martin.

“The two of them are world class operators and Martin is capable of fighting anybody on the planet.”
