Along Charles Blanc: Joe Joyce believes Anthony Joshua is another fighter since losing to Andy Ruiz Jr. in June 2019.
Joshua would be better off fighting like he was before Lewis. He fought hard from the first bell, willing to vent or risk being stopped.
From 2013 to 2019, Joshua fought like an amateur 3 round matchand since there were few fighters capable of standing up to his power, it worked for him.
Two-time former heavyweight champion Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) says he can still punch and isn’t afraid to let go, but is now cautious and fighting on his back foot. Joyce says.
Chubby Lewis’ knockout loss changed Joshua’s fighting style, resulting in him Wladimir Klitschko A style that looks cautious and afraid of bumping into something.
According to Joyce, AJ’s rematch with Dillian White this year will show the difference, as it’s a contest that Joshua needs to fight aggressively to win.
The 34-year-old White (29-3, 19 KOs) is a total shot fighter at this point in his 12-year professional career, but he can still throw punches and show mean intentions. I am fighting with it.
If Joshua doesn’t come forward and fight aggressively, he will be knocked out like he was in the first fight in 2015.
“He’s not gunshy, but he’s been knocked out a few times, so he’s afraid of getting knocked out. He prefers to dodge danger on his hind legs. Just watch the rematch between him and Dillian White and you’ll seeJoe Joyce told iD Boxing about Anthony Joshua being cautious since taking a stop loss to Andy Ruiz Jr. in his first fight in June 2019.
“During Dillian White, he was getting hit hard. “Something obviously changed after Lewis’ defeat. I want to fight him ”
If Joshua wants to regain his previous career success, he will have to change his fighting style in order to return to being the fighter he used to be.
If I were Joe Joyce, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for Joshua to fight him. Even if Joyce wins a world title or two, Joshua still won’t fight him because everything is wrong for him on several levels.
