Anthony Joshua, the unified heavyweight titleholder, has witnessed both sides of being a top-rated champion. He has been hailed for serving 21 straight knockout wins on his path to glory. But was at the receiving end of a lot of flak when he lost his belts to Andy Ruiz Jr. in 2019.
The maiden loss of his pro-career saw him emerge from the ashes to regain the titles in the rematch. The win set him right back on track.
That said, Joshua didn’t make any excuses for the loss and seized his titles in style soon thereafter. Now, he is set to defend them once again, and this time it is Kubrat Pulev on the other side of the ring.
Prior to the high-voltage clash, ‘AJ’ revealed what sets him apart from his contemporaries. The heavyweight champion is frequent on social media. He often posts pictures of his training camps and everyday life. He did something similar and sent his fans into a frenzy.
