Heavyweight champion of the world Anthony Joshua is considered one of the best heavyweights of the current era alongside Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.

Consensus would say the three names above are the leading heavyweight boxers in today’s times.

But they were all inspired by different fighters at one time when they were starting out.

Speaking on social media, Joshua has revealed who his favorite fighter of all time is and as you can imagine, it’s got people talking and then some:

Upon accessing Joshua’s fight style, you can definitely see he models himself on some aspects of Tyson when it comes to the ferocious intent to finish an opponent when he has someone hurt.

Although other fights like the Joseph Parker fight where he boxed more safety-first obviously got away from that style.

One would expect if Joshua were to fight Deontay Wilder next year that the aggressive Joshua would come out however, the one in most of his fights to be fair — resulting in a fight for the ages with two of boxing’s modern day biggest hitters.
