Anthony Joshua must face his demons tonight he will have to take a punch, throw back without hesitation and he might even have to climb off the floor to reclaim the gold and the glory that he maintains is still his.
was never part of the AJ masterplan but here we are, the first world heavyweight championship fight in the Middle East is just hours away, with Joshua reduced to challenger against the only man to have beaten him, Andy Ruiz Jr. It is Joshua’s aura and how he will be remembered that is truly at stake in this compelling examination of boxing’s poster boy.
AJ is looking lean and mean at and the weigh in looked to have been seriously training and looking the lightest ever being 3 stone lighter than his opponent but only time will tell now if it was the right tactics.
By midnight tonight or maybe earlier we will know.
The Euro Weekly News spoke to Dan Hughes boxing trainer who assisted Steve Robinson to beat the odds and become a world champion.
Dan said ” Well it’s make or break for AJ but personally I think round 4 will see an AJ knockout – Ruiz has made his money and AJ will have the bigger heart but the chin he needs to keep out the way because it’s not as strong as he thought it was – AJ will now have the advantage of knowing how to take Ruiz on and should deliver – round 4 you watch!”
