Martin Bakole, newly crowned WBC International Heavyweight Champion, could envision a fight against Anthony Joshua. At the moment, however, he does not feel ready for the challenge.
After a unanimous victory over Sergey Kuzmin, Bakole shed light on his plans in the division. He is currently in a five-fight winning streak and already has a title to offer.
The 27-year-old has a long way to go and is already calling out the top-rated heavyweights. From Dereck Chisora to Dillian Whyte, Bakole has kept his eyes on everyone except « number one » Anthony Joshua.
He considers AJ to be the best heavyweight at the moment. If he settles as number 10, Bakole would like to avoid the matchup at this point.
He greeted the united champion with the respect he deserves and counted himself among Joshua’s fans in his post-fight interview.
Martin Bakole, who completed all 10 rounds against Kuzmin, secured the win with an advantage of 96-94, 98-92 and 97-93. After the bout, Bakole went straight to the heavyweight A-listers in his own way.
The WBC defending champion said, « He’s a tough guy, believe me, he’s a good fight over there but I can see what’s going on at this stage. So why not I am here to face someone. But not AJ now because he’s number one right now. I’m number 10, I want Chisora, I want Dillian Whyte, I want Joe Joyce. I want everyone who is around there. ”
Bakole has a professional record of 16 wins (12 KOs) and one loss. He’s one of the scariest punches in the division.
While the heavyweight unit already has so many top notch boxers, Bakole is steadily rising in the mix. He claims to be ready for the squad and maybe a few more wins will prepare him to face Joshua in the future.
Currently, however, he’s not worried about the fight. Bakole wants to keep winning and things will clearly keep falling on his path.
