CHAMPION VS CHAMPION
Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 Kos) will be returning to the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday March 31, 2018 on Sky Sport Box Office for a Unification fight against Champion Joseph Parker (24-0, 18 Kos).
This will be the first time in History that two reigning Heavyweight World Champions have met in Britain. The stakes couldn’t be any higher. Joshua will be defending his IBF, WBA Super and IBO Belts to Joseph’s WBO Belt along with both unbeaten records on the line.
Both fighters have their own views on how things are going to go down come fight night. Both are young, hungry, and strong and determined to become Undisputed World Heavyweight Champion.
Surprisingly the early trash-talking has been coming from Parker, who feels he’s got the right attributes to put a stop to Joshua’s reign at the top of the food chain. He’s even going as far as predicting a knockout! Parker’s a tough Dude who’s never been stopped or shaken in that squared circle to date. It’s clear to me where the confidence is coming from.
Joshua’s heard the entire trash-talking coming from the opposite camp and he hasn’t been impressed. Personally, I think the critical attacks from them have actually fueled his anger and in return we are going to see a highly motivated AJ pumped up to put a hurting on his opponent in an emphatic fashion.
For some reason or another AJ’s opponents are quick to overlook or underestimate what he brings to that squared circle. AJ is clearly still learning fight by fight but to assume that he’s a walk in the park is blasphemy. REAL TALK!
The winner from this Unification Bout will hold four of the five Major Titles, leaving Deontay Wilder’s WBC Belt as the last one to acquire.
This is shaping out to be quite an intriguing month for the Heavyweight Division. Who will fall and who will rise one step closer to Undisputed?
Who you got?
