The boxing world has erupted with talk about the two leading (currently active) heavyweight champions in the world at the moment – Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.
A Brit and an American with knockout power in both hands, undefeated records and whom have shown they can overcome adversity in the past.
Yes, this is a natural fight for boxing to make later this year really.
During a time of genuine worth and momentum for the sport as a whole.
Fight fans can’t help but link Joshua and Wilder’s name together after WBC champion Wilder’s 10th round stoppage win over Cuban Luis Ortiz last night in New York.
Here’s what people are saying:
Ortiz was nothing special and never really has been hes just a big hype job the same as @BronzeBomber who I thought kinda struggled against Ortiz last night put it this way @anthonyfjoshua easily beats Wilder imo

Don’t watch much boxing these days but caught 2nd half of #WilderOrtiz fuck me Wilder is poor! Big wide slapping punches & from what I hear even from himself @anthonyfjoshua he ain’t finished article but can’t see him being concerned!

Just watched #WilderOrtiz Ortiz was at least 3 rounds up IMO. @BronzeBomber has shown he can bang, and also take a hit. But the guy has no skill at all, will always be dangerous but I’d say @anthonyfjoshua and @Tyson_Fury will not be losing any sleep over that at all.

Congratulations @BronzeBomber on your massive win over Ortiz! I hope to god you get the @anthonyfjoshua fight because I believe he gets you out of here inside 7 Rounds! He won’t make the same mistake as old man Ortiz!!!
