    The future looks quite bleak for Joshua as Tim is on with this. Usyk was never a concussive hitter even at cruiserweight but nearly had the bid guy out of there more than once. Edward must be shyting himself.

      Fair points from Bradley, usually mostly agree with him. Yes, Joshua would have to show that fire he showed against Whyte.

      He does seem to be gracious in defeat, but maybe he should make up some dislike for an opponent before a fight.

      Before and during a fight it's battle mode. After a fight then you can hug and shake hands or whatever. Can he beat Usyk? It's possible, but he'd have to be hugely improved. Usyk will get better as well.

        He was dropped and hurt during the fight but he weathered those storms and finished inside the distance. Yes, Wald was slower but he had a hurt guy in front of him and couldn't close the show (because he KEPT trying to land the left hook) and couldn't close the show.
        Wlad was finished before he even met fury
        .an absolute shell of himself against byrant jennings ..no reflexes, couldn't pull the trigger and cemented feet

          Stop it! He went 11 years without a loss before the Fury fight!

          This is why I said he led a career based on his jab and hook alone in most cases. Yes, both brothers were robotic and boring, but they got the job done with their size and fundamentals....THIS is why his career lasted as long as it did.

          And he beat Jennings and KO'd Pulev months before that. I may be getting it wrong here or missing your point because I typically agree with you.

            He was already fighting scared before Ruiz got him. His timidity can be traced back to old man Wlad finding his chin and nearly stopping him. Since that moment, even in fights Joshua easily won, he has been incredibly timid. Even old man Pulev, who couldn't crack an egg 10+ years ago when he was good, had Joshua fighting scared for long stretches.

              Right now AJ is in a win/win situation. He can lose to Usyk in the rematch and still make more money than most active heavyweights in novelty fights and until Usyk loses he can sell it by saying he lost to a undefeated undisputed guy in Usyk. Why would he care about losing when he is still on top of the world.

                There is barely a state of the heavyweight division. Show by the fact that the last five dominant fighters of the division have just been oversized men who got by mostly on being oversized. We are now starting to see a surge in hw where we may end up with a new decent generation of fighters but it also seems if you aren’t at least 6’4” or taller there is no future for you in the division.

                  yeah Timmy, a lot of us have been saying Joshua is chinny and soft.

                    I've always said Andy took Joshua soul similar to Maidana took Ortiz.

                      So Anthony Joshua gets written off for losing a close competitive chess type boxing match with a superior technical boxer. And Deontay Wilder gets praised for getting pulverized and dam near killed in the ring by a flabby bi-polar recovering drug addict. You can’t make this s h i t up.
