Joshua is one of the most renowned heavyweights on the planet. In fact, a few weeks back, the British warrior was all set to take on the biggest and perhaps the most important fight of his life against his compatriot, Tyson Fury.

As that fight was disrupted, Joshua, who moved ahead, is in talks to face Oleksandr Usyk for his WBO title defense. That said, despite this fight not being official, Joshua has already immersed himself in some hard-core workouts.

Joshua is one of the most active heavyweights. Even when he’s unaligned for a bout, the Hertfordshire native keeps up with his stringent boxing routines. With that, he will look forward to retain his belt and target the undisputed bout.
