Anthony Joshua’s ex-rival backs him to silence doubts



Former heavyweight title challenger and rival to Anthony Joshua, Kevin Johnson, has stated that he expects the Briton to make an epic comeback and show everyone ‘that it’s not over yet. ‘.

Johnson is a veteran of the sport, with a professional playing career spanning nearly twenty years – a defensive style that has enabled him to compete in his forties.

Despite the 21 losses to his name, ‘Kingpin’ has only been stopped three times, far ahead of the likes of Tyson Fury, Vitali Klitschko, Derek Chisora ​​and Daniel Dubois.

Of those three stops, none was as decisive as his defeat to Joshua in 2015, when ‘AJ’ ended the fight in the second round and clearly earned Johnson’s respect. in this process.

Since then, Joshua has become a two-time unified heavyweight champion, but consecutive defeats to Oleksandr Usyk led many to believe that the 33-year-old boxer’s peak days were over.
