Sky announced that it will continue showing boxing fights featuring world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua on Sky Sports Box Office for at least another three years.
The Cuban heavyweight contender's laughter expressed all he needed to say about possibly getting a shot at Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs), the British superstar who owns the IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO titles.

'We have created history together and we are dedicated to keeping the United Kingdom scene in high demand for all boxers and boxing fans, but for me personally, the journey is nowhere near finished yet'.

The 28-year-old could fight the victor of Saturday's clash between Dillian Whyte and Joseph Parker if he beats Povetkin, while American Deontay Wilder has also been mentioned as a potential future opponent.
"I am delighted to extend our promotional agreement with Anthony and also extend his relationship with Sky Sports".
It comes just 24 hours before Joshua's long-time rival, Dillian Whyte, prepares for arguably the biggest fight of his career as he takes on Kiwi star Parker at the O2 Arena in London.
It is hoped that a fight with WBC champion Deontay Wilder will follow for Joshua in 2019, and that his most significant match-ups - undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk of Ukraine has become a further target - will follow in the coming years.
In the past year, Sky Sports Box Office has brought fans the biggest bouts from across the globe including Anthony Joshua's title defences against Parker and Carlos Takam, Bellew v Haye 2, Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor from Las Vegas and more.
