Is Anthony Joshua the future world heavyweight champion?

WBN 02/12/2015

Anthony Joshua is one of the world’s top upcoming boxers and could well go on to become the heavyweight champion of the world at some point in the future. The Englishman, who was born in Watford, announced himself on the world stage at the 2012 Olympic Games as he went on to become the Super heavyweight champion.

From there, Joshua has started to ply his trade as a professional boxer and has won 14 straight fights – with all fourteen results by the way of knockout. Joshua’s sheer size, speed and style give him a genuine advantage in almost every bout and his upcoming fight against old rival Dillian Whyte for the vacant British heavyweight belt on December 12th – which should give us a better indication as to whether Joshua has what it takes to win the world heavyweight championship in the future.

At the time of writing, Joshua is heavily fancied to beat Whyte despite losing to his compatriot in their amateur days. In the build-up to the event, boxing fans can keep up to date with the latest tips and news via Bookies.com – who can also provide odds and enhanced offers from a number of British bookmakers. For those Joshua fans who fancy the youngster to get the job done but want as much value as possible, you can find out further information here.

Tyson Fury beat Wladimir Klitschko last weekend to become the heavyweight champion of the world – an extraordinary achievement. At 27 years old, Fury may be coming towards the twilight years of his career and Joshua may not face much competition for the title in the future. While there are a number of solid upcoming boxers, none possess the same levels of talent as Joshua and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see “AJ” dominate the division for years to come.

Is he a future world heavyweight champion? Well, he’s certainly got the build and skill to achieve this goal. It will be tough but Joshua has shown enough glimpses in his 25 rounds of boxing to suggest that he could go on to lift the title at some point in his career. Whether he has the talent and hunger to avoid defeat throughout his career, that’s another question but Joshua could be the next world champion and has already discussed the mouth-watering prospect of a fight against Tyson Fury in the near future.
