    I think Joshua is the best heavyweight out there at the moment. A lot of people are playing this guy cheap, ( to borrow a line from Smokin’ Joe.) IMO, Joshua is the guy who holds the belt, even though Fury’s belt was more or less taken away from him. “Fury Road” will have to take back his title. Critics cite limited opposition as one of Joshua’s faults along with accusations of being “musclebound.” Musclebound? This guy is a fine coordinated athlete and my gawd, have you taken a look at who Wilder has faced.

    I don’t believe Joshua wins this fight.  Povetkin has only lost once.  Better inside fighter and doesn’t just stand square in front of another fighter.
    Joshua story is ending.
