My tuppence - Joshua got the boxing lesson he's been due for some time, largely because of his slow hands, lack of lateral movement (other than the predictable occasional step to his left), telegraphed head movement, once paced, boxing by numbers and lack of any kind of in-fight strategy.
Whatever you think about AJ he’s done so much to bring excitement back to this weight class. People can call him a bodybuilder or whatever other silly snide remark they fancy but he’s brought the box office back and for that you have to appreciate him
True, as did Bruno. I'm not sure the "bodybuilder" comment is completely silly, just like Bruno, he has an over-muscled physique that lets him down - slow hands, heavy arms that get heavier with each round, forced rather than flowing punches, etc. And, just like Bruno, he has no instinct when he gets hurt - doesn't grab, doesn't move, doesn't cover up, just leaves his chin out there.
These tactical fighters who dance around the jab, Fury, Mayweather and possibly now Usyk are the end of the the big hitters?
You must be watching different fights to me if they're dancing around the jab. Usyk threw more power punches than Joshua (96 to 71) and the same number of jabs - from a fighter giving away 3" in height, 4" in reach and 8kg. Fury had Wilder down twice before stopping him. Punchers often get themselves to the top, but rarely stay there if that's all they've got - I fear this is probably the case with Joshua.
