Anthony Joshua, the undisputed Commonwealth and British heavyweight title holder, recently won his professional career’s 15th fight. Joshua knocked out Dillian Whyte, his old rival, in the seventh round of the bout. Joshua now possesses a track record of 15-0 with a 100% knockout rate.
America’s number 1 heavyweight boxer Deontay Wilder lately shared his thoughts regarding the rising star Joshua. The undefeated WBC heavyweight champion Wilder possesses a track record of 35-0 with as many as 34 knockouts. Wilder said that Joshua has made a lot of fans during his short career but so did David Price, who lost his fame and glory after losing two consecutive fights to Tony Thompson in 2013. Price now holds a track record of 19-3 with 16 KOs. He won the first 15 fights of his professional career in a row.
Wilder said, “If Joshua keeps doing what he’s doing [he’s going to be something]. He’s still climbing the rankings. The only thing about him is that he’s in the position where they have the best fans in the world, that’s in the UK. In America you have to be on top for the fans to get on board and in other countries they already jump on their fighters [very early] and they go with them [to the top]. The only thing that I hope don’t happen to him is that he turns into David Price.”
