All admirers and boxing fans have probably watched the recent encounters of some of the most famous fighters at the moment – Anthony Joshua and Deotnay Wilder.
What did Joshua do with Takam?
Surprisingly for many Joshua fans, he was not quite adequate in this match. He started well, but the opponent stood very vigorously on the pitch, very moving, and although the hits were strong, Takam was in condition and in a good shape. This was not expected from Joshua, and in the course of the rounds, his form fell and began to play more passively in the ring. Separately, he also suffered some serious blows, but not so serious as to be shot down. One of the reasons for this is his preparation for months for fight with Kubrat Pulev and only 15 days of preparation for the match with Takam. Either way, Joshua won the match, though in the tenth round. Takim, however, opposed and played a very good game according to the experts and presented himself worthy.
A long-standing match for Wilder has been played, but Joshua, who, despite his strong match against Vladimir Klitschko, has shown that he has great potential in this sport, not to be allowed, but to train permanently and to prepare for a future meeting with Wilder.
What can we say about Diontay Wilder?
A very aggressive boxer that the audience eagerly awaits in every game. He makes spectacles, play very dynamic and movable in the ring. Impressive is his boxing history so far. 39-0, out of these 39 wins, only one is win by points and he very much regrets that he has failed to make 39 of 39 knockout. Joshua is 28 years old, and Dionysus is 32, giving a slight advantage to the Englishman. Diontay is slightly higher than Joshua’s 2.01 centimeter at his opponent’s 1.98. In pounds, the differences are already noticeable. There the advantage is for Joshua and according to boxing specialists, this tilts the balance in favor of Joshua 115 per 100 kg. Wilder will rely on more match dynamics, more movement and higher growth. Joshua has an advantage in weight and technique and defense.
Everyone asks if it really is so good. Somebody even criticizes him for choosing easy opponents, but here with Stiverne things were not like they think. Stiverne was the WRC champion in 2014 and 2015, and in the first round he was knocked out. Diontay definitely rehearses the opponent, but one is visible, at least at first glance. Diontay has no good defense, has a very good push, but the defense, according to most specialists is not at a very good level, that Joshua can surprise him here.
What will happen in the battle between the two athletes and when the match between them will not be known yet, but we definitely think that there will be a match because the fans want it and they want it, and not forget that the revenues from such match would be great.
