Anthony Joshua Shows Respect for His Fellow Warriors


As the sun comes up in the aftermath of the biggest event in the sport’s historically celebrated division, fans were treated to a tremendous mega-fight rematch of two undefeated heavyweights in their prime getting it on.

Current Ring/WBC champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury and former WBC champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder fought in the manner that fans want to see when the stakes are this high; an all-out beat down.

Fury improved his record to 30-0-1, 21 KOs. handing the Alabama power puncher his first defeat. He put on a performance that nobody saw coming. From the moment the bell sounded, the Gypsy King was in attack mode.

Wilder, now with a record of 42-1-1, 41 KOs, was game even when it was apparent that this wasn’t going to be his night. He never looked to quit and was upset when his corner threw in the towel.

However, there is a third party that also paid respect to both men that has a vested interest in the outcome of the fight.

Unified champion Anthony “AJ” Joshua (23-1, 21ko) had to overcome his demons after suffering his first defeat at the hands of Andy “The Destroyer” Ruiz (33-2, 22ko), back in December of 2019. The British unified champion knows a thing about coming back from defeat and what it takes.

Joshua, took to social media to pay homage to both, his rivals and the heart they showed in the fight. That should serve as a reminder that not everyone has what it takes to step into the ring and we should respect those that reach the level that these men have.
