Having last boxed in December of last year, Anthony Joshua is scheduled to (possibly) fight on December 12th against Kubrat Pulev.
The the plan is then to clash with Tyson Fury if Fury overcomes Deontay Wilder in their third fight (no foregone conclusion as Wilder will always be a threat to any boxer while he is standing as many have found out).
Against Andy Ruiz Jr last December, Joshua was very ‘negative’ in the way he fought, choosing to box with Ruiz Jr having been knocked out in their first fight, losing all of his titles.
Eddie Hearn has full belief in Joshua and his knockout power and is of the mindset that he will knockout both Pulev and Fury, if/when they meet.
“I actually messaged him and I said: ‘You’re going to steamroll through these guys,” Hearn told Sky Sports.
“He just replied in capitals and said: STEAMROLL! I think he’d love to [stop Fury]. Yeah. He knows that Fury is an outstanding fighter and it’s going to be very difficult. But you can ask him for yourself, I believe he has bad intentions in those fights and I believe he expects to. I believe he will knock out Kubrat Pulev and Tyson Fury.
“I think he’s ready to start doing a demolition job on these guys. I think he’s shown, coming back from the Ruiz Jr fight, that he has the ability to box and move. That’s in the arsenal now. But he still loves knocking people out – and when you see the drills, when you see the pads and you see that spite in his shots.”
