Matchroom Boxing CEO and Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed that Joshua hasn’t stopped training since the Kubrat Pulev fight on the 12th of December, last year. Anthony Joshua beat Kubrat Pulev comprehensively, via knockout in the ninth round, thereby defending his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles, successfully. The win also set him up for a super-bout against fellow Brit, Tyson Fury. The match will be a heavyweight title unification bout for the undisputed champion of the world.
Speaking about his client Anthony Joshua, in an interview with Fight Hub TV, Eddie Hearn revealed that Joshua has been in phenomenal spirit since the win over Kubrat Pulev. Hearn also revealed that AJ has been robotic in the training camp and in his approach.
‘He’s loving boxing, and he’s quite enjoying lockdown‘ – Eddie Hearn
Eddie Hearn was quoted as saying, “He’s fantastic, I mean, he hasn’t stopped working since the Pulev fight. And he’s loving boxing, and he’s quite enjoying lockdown. Because he’s so robotic, really, in camp and in his approach.”
Hearn also revealed that only a few minor formalities were left before an announcement on the AJ-Fury bout is made, adding that he doesn’t believe any major world issues will be affecting the fight.
Anthony Joshua will not be having it easy against the remarkably defensive Tyson Fury. Fury has never been defeated in his boxing career. The closest Fury ever came, to being defeated was his first fight against Deontay Wilder in 2018, which ended in a draw. And, it is safe to say that we will be seeing the two Britishers fighting it out very soon!
