I had not heard of this guy until seen recently but has got the excitement level up in the UK.
Well he is the undefeated heavyweight boxing champion. Plus a gold medalist.
It is the way he has done it, 18 KOs in professional career against journeymen etc… then fight stoppage against Wladimir Klitschko. A lot of the KOs seemed to be stopped early before damage could be done but left his opposition unhappy.
Interesting he isn’t more well known. His bout with Klitscho at Wembley was amazing. Crowd, fight, spectacle.
Imo it is he and Klitscho (still) then daylight. Joseph Parker has a lot of work to get to his standard and I think Deontay Wilder is one of the luckiest men ever to be world champ.
Its a shame that McGregor v Mayweather is all people really know because there is one of the best ever in Golovkin right now who has been invincible. Fighting Canelo Alvarez soon and that should be huge.
He beat Charles Martin. It’s not like he flew under the radar.
Who is Charles Martin? Never heard of him.
He was the heavyweight champion of the world until he fought Joshua. I checked with him - he says he’s never heard of you either!
Pfft head in the sand that Martin bloke…
Joshua was in too bit much bit a hurry when fighting Whyte - almost came unstuck.
The WBC champ is deontay Wildthing, undefeated 38-0 with 97% KO rate.
On paper he is amazing…
Charles Martin is less than the wild thing and that says everything.
There is nothing really doing in the Heavies these days aside from Joshie, but the lower weights are going well, great fight next week, Ward v Kovalev, then Garcia v Broner, later in the year GGG v Canelo
Well at the other end of the Spectrum
Mundine rejuvenating his career again
