Since his professional boxing career depended on it, Joshua had to choose a bout at this pivotal point in his career so that he could remain confident in his ability to prevail. As a result, a lot of boxing promoters thought that AJ’s greatest chance right now would be to face Jermaine. Surely, the British player did not disappoint as he dominated nearly every round.
The former heavyweight unified champion has been going through a bad patch. In 2019,the Brit boxer suffered his first defeat against Andy Ruiz. Even though in the immediate rematch AJ defeated Andy but little did he know his worst days are incoming.
Having a victory against the Bulgarian heavyweight Kubrat Pulev, AJ went on to challenge the Ukrainian boxing legend Oleksandr Usyk. Two years and two back to back defeats against The Cat almost put an end to AJ’s career.
Good news for The Briton’s fans is that their favorite is back on the winning track. AJ is not just back rather the former IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion of the world is now aiming big. The 33-year-old boxer has set his goal to fight Tyson Fury next even though The Gypsy King has been ignoring him for years now.
