Anthony Joshua, the unified heavyweight titleholder, has witnessed both sides of being a top-rated champion. He has been hailed for serving 21 straight knockout wins on his path to glory. But was at the receiving end of a lot of flak when he lost his belts to Andy Ruiz Jr. in 2019.

The maiden loss of his pro-career saw him emerge from the ashes to regain the titles in the rematch. The win set him right back on track.

That said, Joshua didn’t make any excuses for the loss and seized his titles in style soon thereafter. Now, he is set to defend them once again, and this time it is Kubrat Pulev on the other side of the ring.

Anthony Joshua- The lethal grinding machine

Being a humble outer-ring persona, Joshua is similarly treacherous inside the squared circle. He has transitioned himself from an elite amateur to a professional master in a span of just 8 years.

Meanwhile, he has also become a global icon with constant media appearances, advertisements, and entertainment spotlights. However, that hasn’t diverted him from boxing. If we monitor his social media posts, his training video showcases the grind he puts in.

However, that might not be enough to defeat a looming prodigy like Pulev. ‘The Cobra’ brings in a lot of challenges and he has the power to vanquish ‘AJ’, especially when the world titles are at stake.
