The big question is will Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko really happen?
The short answer?
AJ vs Klitschko would be one of, if not the biggest boxing fight of the year. Some will say Golovkin Brook. With a combined 70 KO’s in total, this would be a fight which would most likely not go the distance.
The news released earlier this week by Eddie Hearn that Klitschko wants to fight for the WBA title even though Joshua offered to defend his IBF title against Klitschko. Both fighters want the biggest fights, two of the best boxers in their division, the fight makes sense. Hearn has said whether or not AJ is fighting Klitschko or a different opponent and when exactly it will be, will be released by the end of the week. The fight will be on either the 26th November or the 3rd or 10th of December, if fighting Klitschko it will be on the 10th.
The fans want to see this fight, the boxers want the fight!
So it’s just a matter of time.
I predict that this fight will not last more than 8 rounds and that even though Klitschko has a major experience advantage, AJ will emerge victorious. I think it will be an even fight, I don’t think it will be another AJ demolition, Klitschko is a superb fighter and the fight is likely to go either way in the early rounds but as it progresses I believe he will be worn down and defeated.
