Joshua, who enjoys MMA and was a character in a UFC video game, suggested Pereira should try boxing. Pereira responded, asking Joshua for advice on who to fight.

Joshua encouraged Pereira, saying, “The options are endless champ.” He also recommended Pereira contact his management team, 258MGT. Interestingly, Pereira already has one boxing win from 2017.
