At the end of this month, Anthony Joshua will face Joseph Parker in a heavyweight unification match.

The fight pitches two unbeaten heavyweights against each other and many pundits suspect that this could be Joshua?s hardest fight of his professional career.

But, although Parker presents a threat to Joshua?s ambitions, a lot of people are looking towards the mother-of-all unification fights with the likeable Watford fighter going head-to-head with the WBC heavyweight title holder, Deontay Wilder.

If, or when, the contest is made, we?d fully expect opinion to be divided on who?d emerge victorious.

However, one legendary trainer, Freddie Roach, is of the opinion that it would be Joshua that would be having his arm raised at the end of the fight.

Roach, talking about Wilder after he nearly came a cropper in his recent defence against Luis Ortiz, commenting,

?The Cuban got a little bit tired like I thought he might.

?The thing is he came on really good there. The referee came really close to stopping the fight. Wilder came back. He?s a little bit sloppy with the right hand. He was sloppy. The thing is he was very effective though.?


Indeed, Wilder?s wind-milling right-hand is a potent weapon. One flurry of blows could halt the ambitions of any heavyweight.

Continuing though, Roach has this to say about a possible clash between the two biggest names in the heavyweight division,

?I think Joshua is the best heavyweight in the world. I do, yeah,?

?Deontay gets knocked out. He?s big, strong, with good power.?


Let?s hope, if the two do meet, Roach has got it spot on!
