Hearn Talks Joshua Tactics

In two months time the eyes of the world will focus on Anthony Joshua as the IBF world heavyweight title holder steps into the ring to face his toughest test yet, a fight with Wladimir Klitschko.

For Joshua it will be the third defence of his crown. After knocking out Charles Martin Joshua has also stopped two challengers in Dominic Breazeale and Eric Molina.

However, there are some pundits out there who are suggesting that in his professional career Joshua has yet to be seriously tested and that when he steps into the ring with a serious puncher he could be found out.

But, then again, don’t all heavyweights enter the ring knowing that one big punch can see a career change?

Joshua, in his grudge fight with Dillian Whyte, was caught by a huge punch that had him wobbling, but the Watford fighter gritted his teeth, came through it, winning in some style.

Ahead of the fight, a bout that will be watched by 90,000 people inside Wembley Stadium and millions on television, Eddie Hearn has spoken about how he feels Joshua will fight against Wladimir Klitschko with Hearn remarking,

“I think he will be looking to stand in front of Klitschko and throw shots and fight like he always does.

“He doesn’t jump in, he’s not reckless, but both fighters know each other, they both feel confident about winning.”


Joshua, no doubt, will have seen how Tyson Fury won against Klitschko, in Dusseldorf, but on that occasion Wladimir seemed afraid to unleash his right in case Tyson Fury caught him with a counter-punch.

Now whether Wladimir will be prepared to take the risk of landing first against Joshua, knowing that the reigning IBF title holder is a much bigger puncher than Fury remains to be seen.

If Klitschko is serious about wanting to win his title back, at the age of forty-one, we could see an explosive but very short fight.

But as long as Joshua stays calm and bides his time waiting for that opening, Klitschko could get that Corey Saunders feeling again when he was destroyed inside two rounds.

Now wouldn’t that get 90,000 inside Wembley up on their feet!
