Reigning heavyweight champion of the world Anthony Joshua believes a showdown between himself and WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is the fight boxing needs.Joshua made his stand known days after stopping the teak-tough Carlos Takam in the 10th round at Cardiff’s sold-out Principality Stadium to retain his WBA, IBO and IBF titles.As mixed reactions continue to trail his victory following the rather early stoppage of the fight by referee Phil Edwards, Joshua already has his sights on the bigger challenge, calling out motormouth American Wilder for a lavish showdown.Wilder, 31, who defends his belt in a return clash against Bermane Stiverne next weekend will be hoping to add to his unblemished record after 38 fights, that includes an astonishing 37 stoppages.In his words “Yeah, boxing needs it. One hundred percent”The champ also added that:“It has to happen. We’re easy to work with. Eddie (Hearn) knows what he’s doing. Eddie just wants to keep a lid on his [Wilder’s] jar and say, ‘wow, calm down’.“We can fill it up to the top and maybe spill a little bit over but we’re not filling up the second jar.”RelatedEddie Hearn Calls Out Deontay Wilder For ‘kicking Joshua while he’s down’June 2, 2019In “Boxing”Anthony Joshua Takes Time Off As He Awaits Next FightDecember 7, 2018In “Boxing”Tyson Fury, a True Champion who Sparks up Heavyweight BoxingDecember 3, 2018In “Boxing”

The August figure was 49.3. The index had remained above growth neutral for 32 straight months.Creighton University economist Ernie Goss oversees the survey, and he says trade disagreements and the global economic slowdown have slowed regional growth.The survey results are compiled into a collection of indexes ranging from zero to 100.
