Anthony Joshua checkpoint: Where do we stand with the British Heavyweight hope?

Anthony Joshua’s days as a boxing prospect are done.

To call a fighter like Anthony Joshua a “prospect” demurs what is simply reality. He’s not “one to watch,” nor is a fighter whose best days await him. Anthony Joshua could contend for a world championship right now; there are absolutely no questions about his ability to knock down the gatekeepers put in front of him. So much, that, not even the television commentary team dared spill any rhetoric when he fought Kevin Johnson at “Rule Britannia.” As well as the viewership at home, they knew what to expect from the very beginning.

Kell Brook could fight again in May

Kell Brook wants to box as soon as possible after his brutal four-round demolition of Jo Jo Dan in his first defence of his IBF World Welterweight title in Sheffield on Saturday.

Brook dismantled his mandatory challenger with a stunning display of his trademark power and accuracy, flooring the Romanian-Canadian twice in both the second and fourth rounds before the challenger retired on his stool ahead of the fifth.

Frampton v Quigg is No 50:50 Fight

Scott Quigg is a nice guy.  The number of fighters, managers, promoters and pundits to preface an opinion on the Bury boxer with a comment on his affability means that, despite having never met the man, I take his genuine pleasantness as read.

Pronouncements of his niceness from rival camps are, of course, more often than not a polite proviso rather than an unalloyed compliment.  Something along the lines of, Scott’s a great guy, inevitably followed by, but I’ll knock him out or he’s not in my class, is par for the course. 

But in the boxing press, the good egg line is actually very rarely a sheepish qualification of a more damning passage on the fighter in question.  Put simply, nice boxers get an easier ride off those paid to fill the column inches.

Promoters dominating the news – a sign of the times or something that needs to be nipped in the bud?

Boxing in the headlines sure has changed over the recent years. One may say that  the innovative nature of the internet permits more news to reach an audience faster and more wider than ever. True. But what good is it truly for boxing fans when the men in suits want in on a piece of the action and seem like they want to take centre stage by disclosing the going on’s of the business side of boxing? It may fire up online debates but recently it has felt like that the sport is more about the promoters and less about the people who give every fibre of their being in the ring, both in the gym and outside.
