Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua prepares to have an early knockout win over WBC king Deontay Wilder


Two-time world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has revealed how he would target a ruthless early knockout win over WBC king Deontay Wilder if they finally meet in an undisputed world title fight in 2020.

The rival heavyweight champions hold all four titles between them, with Joshua regaining his WBA ‘Super’, IBF and WBO belts in a rematch win over Andy Ruiz Jr, while Wilder defended his WBC strap with a seventh-round knockout win over Cuban southpaw Luis Ortiz. Joshua produced a masterful display of back-foot boxing to defeat Ruiz Jr on points in Saudi Arabia, but insists he would employ a far more aggressive style to prevent Wilder from finding the range for his destructive right hand.
