Legend Holyfield gives Joshua the edge over Wilder
Four times heavyweight champion of the World Evander Holyfield says that a fight between Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua would be a natural and a real fan favorite.
At the WBC convention in the Fairmont Hotel, Baku, Evander who was undisputed cruiserweight and heavyweight champion reasoned that Joshua’s amateur experience is greater.
Holyfield also said that Wilder is unbeaten and is a sharp, fast puncher, and literally anything can and probably will happen.
He did say: “I do think Joshua does have the edge, because he’s the more complete fighter, but it all depends upon how they fight on the night. You’re only as good as your last fight.
“Anthony was knocked down hard by Wladimir Klitschko and he was hurt, but came back and showed heart. You don’t learn how to get up until you’re knocked down!
“Until you get knocked down, you don’t think you can get knocked down. The first time I was knocked down, I was seventeen years old. It didn’t hurt, it just embarrassed me. The thing was…getting up.”
