The biggest fight of the year is coming up on the weekend and that is of course, the heavyweight showdown between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko. This happens on the weekend and this is the biggest moment in AJ’s career so far and even though 18 months ago this isn’t a fight which would have been even on the radar, because of some strange events and circumstances, the timing has come right for Joshua to get his shot at the big time.
Joshua has won all 18 of his professional fights by a knockout and everyone knows that he is a muscle machine, a real powerhouse. He delivers devastating blows and he has smashed his way through all of his opposition so far. However, he hasn’t really been hit so far in his career apart from one hook from Dillian Whyte and against Klitschko, Joshua will get hit and that’s just simply down to the style of Joshua.
Joshua likes to stand there right in front of his opponent and he will be a target for the consistent jab attack of the Ukrainian. Joshua has not fought anyone of this calibre before yet in his young career and while he has plenty of time to mature and to learn his way to the top, he is taking on an opponent who has been there and done it all. Will Joshua be able to take advantage of youth and speed over his aging opponent?
The unusual and nice thing about these two fighters is that they respect each other and there has been no nasty battle of words in the build up. This is just about the sport, with the humble Joshua wanting the status of being the best, and the fire in Klitschko still burning bright despite that strange loss 17 months ago against Tyson Fury. He hasn’t been back in the ring since that loss to Fury and that’s a long time out of the sport and he will be wortked over hard by the speed of Joshua.
