Joshua, the unified heavyweight kingpin, has confronted countless top-notch prospects of his division. However, he hasn’t faced someone as rugged as the ‘Gypsy King’ in his entire boxing career. Despite this, he’s keen on rolling out an exemplary show for the boxing masses and establish himself as the heavyweight face.

On the flip side, Tyson Fury, a sheer favorite, is already on his career-high. He’ll enter the squared circle against Joshua after hammering Deontay Wilder in his last fight.

That said, the two are in their prime, waiting to get their hands on each other. Needless to say, this fight will stay true to its hype.
