Boxing’s fastest growing star is back in 2 weeks time. Anthony Joshua will defend his IBF Heavyweight title against Dominic Breazeale at the 02 arena. Here is what you need to know.
Anthony Joshua like usual is in fantastic condition.
Breazeale on the other hand looks a little overweight around the mid section. The American has promised to come to the UK and make Joshua feels his power by trading and brawling.
The only problem is, that is the worst game plan I have heard in years. Breazeale is going to trade with a brawler who has enormous power? Well that’s all we need to hear.
Essentially that game plan by Breazeale means there is no plan. To beat a puncher you need to respect his power and it’s clear that the American is delusional in rating his own power. Breazeale was very lucky to escape with the win against Mansour & his defense is suspect.
Despite all of Breazeale’s talk and courage, AJ will land that sniper right hand at will. Breazeale will continue to get up, he’s got heart as we saw against Mansour. But the horrible game plan of trading with an enormous power puncher will lead to Breazeale being taken out cleanly and brutally in the 2nd round. At the very latest it will be in the 3rd round, but we just can’t see it lasting more than 2 rounds.
We wanted to say Breazeale has a chance, especially since AJ has been a little distracted by enormous media commitments this camp. However the quotes the American has made about Joshua better be ready “For a war & for a dog fight”, means this one will plays into AJ’s hands and it will be fun, short & brutal. If Breazeale came over and said he wanted to box Anthony from range and show patience and movement, I would give him a slight chance. But he's done the opposite, coming up with one insane statement after another.
So AJ KO in 2. Multiple knockdowns.
