Nigerian international and world boxing champion Anthony Joshua has unveiled a new body.
Anthony Joshua has shown off a new body transformation as he prepares to square off with Tyson Fury.
In a new photo shared on his social media page, AJ showed that he is in sensational shape ahead of the undisputed heavyweight fight coming up later this year.
The Unified champion has agreed a stunning £500 million deal with Fury, who holds the WBC title, for two highly anticipated fights expected to take place in 2021.
All that remains to be sorted out is the venue for the first fight, with Saudi Arabia reportedly in the running to host it.
Joshua and Fury are likely to meet in the summer, meaning they have around three to four months to go before they put all their eggs in one basket in the biggest British fight of all time.
The 31-year-old’s body looks toned and powerful a few months before his potential fight against Fury, who could crown the first undisputed heavyweight champion in more than two decades.
Many believe Joshua will be the underdog when he takes on Fury, who is widely considered the No. 1 heavyweight on the planet after emphatically dethroning WBC champion Deontay Wilder last year.
The Gypsy King is also undefeated in his 13-year career, which is more than can be said for AJ after his shock loss to Andy Ruiz Jr. in 2019.
Still, heavyweight fighter Dillian Whyte believes the Joshua-Fury clash is a 50-50 matchup and can’t pick a winner.
“There’s a case for both guys winning this fight, I think. Both guys showed a lot of versatility in their fights,” Whyte, who can reinforce a position as Fury’s WBC mandatory challenger by winning his rematch against Alexander Povetkin this weekend, told AK and Barak.
“[Joshua’s] two fights with Ruiz and [Fury’s] two fights with Wilder – they’re the same guys but they’re different styles and different ways of getting the victory.
“It’s hard, only true fans of each guy will say, ‘This guy’s gonna win. It’s very hard, I don’t think no boxing purist would say, ‘This guy’s gonna win because of this.
It’s hard to pick, in my opinion, it’s a 50/50 fight.”
