    Default Anthony Joshua promises to bring back aggressive style against Alexander Povetkin

    Let's hope he goes straight for the KO and is true to his word.

    On a media conference call, Joshua stated: “I’ve just gotta focus on Povektin, go in there and have fun, don’t be cautious because it’s ruining my aggressive style.

    Well IF Povetkin is fully prepared for the fight that COULD end up coming back to bite AJ in the ass.


    I don't expect AJ will have trouble since Povetkin is older and slower, but dude can still punch even if he isn't on the juice and his fighting from a crouch could draw AJ in and off balance....that is what Povetkin needs. AJ overreaching, AJ getting in too close and then attempting to back straight up instead of circling out.


    I think AJ will win, but if an upset happened I wouldn't be terribly shocked.

    Yup wouldn't be so bad but every post he makes tends to be in Brocklish, it wouldn't be so bad if he wasn't just obsessively trolling.

    You do both realise that you’re biting on a guy who thinks Tyson Fury is a big KO Merchant ?

    I'd say Povetkin at this stage still KOs Wilder. I think this is AJ's toughest fight since Wlad.

    Brick just bringing down the main board with his usual bs, contradicting himself left, right and centre.

    Maybe we should treat him like the WBA and all ignore him.

    I think Joshua is robotic too. Put him in there with someone awkward and can punch and keep punching and he is in deep waters. He is fine when it is measured and orthodox, it makes him look in control.

    Boxers say a lot of things. Thing is if he can just turn on and off this 'aggressive' style then why turn it off for an entire year? He will do what he can to try and win the fight and I can't blame him. You get reckless and you will likely get caught, so I get it. I think he fights the way he does for a reason. He is hardly Joe Calzaghe.

    I don't think anyone is comparing AJ to a young Cassius. He is fighting solid opposition and winning.

    Sure we want to see big fights but he often do they come off when fans want them to?

    I hope we get to see them all fight each other.

    Anyone brave enough to say where they rate Povetkin heading into this fight?

    I have him at #3.

    True, few can be like Calzaghe or Ali or Tyson. This is where I consider Joshua just a solid professional in a very weak division. He is very steady, but I was actually not impressed with his performance against Wlad. Nobody should be struggling with a 41 year old coming back off a long lay off and a performance where he couldn't land anything. The spin is that Wlad was somehow inspired, but I think it more showed that Joshua is limited. Fury, though boring, did it with far less bother.

    I think most fans accept that AJ is flawed/ limited (outside of AJ fan boys obviously).

    Personally I think the Wlad the fought AJ, beats the Fury he fought. And if he came back now, I'd pick him to beat both Fury and Wilder. I would have picked Wlad in a rematch with AJ if he had enforced it at the time. But right now I think AJ is the only one that would beat a come-backing Wlad right now. So I disagree that no one should be struggling with a 41 year old coming back off a long layoff, as Wlad is now 42 and everyone in the top 10 would still struggle with him.

    I rate Povetkin no.1

    There's gonna be a million idiots saying "I told you Joshua was a bum hype job" when Povetkin irons him out.

    Damn, you have him above both AJ and Wilder?

    Thanks for posting your rating of Povetkin.

    Well technically i'd make AJ no.1 considering his victory over Wlad, however, Povetkin is no.2, Fury no.3, Whyte no.4 and Wilder 5.

    OK so that's 2 of us that consider him in the top 3. I'd have Fury lower, but the main guys are there.

    The Ring are not recognising this 1 vs 3 fight as for the title.
