So big fight coming up this weekend Martin vs Joshua for the IBF Heavyweight Championship. Another step up for AJ who did face his biggest test in his win against Dillian Whyte after appearing to be to be rocked early on in the fight. Although Joshua went on to win comfortably it has left big question marks over his ability to take a big hit and surly a question Charles Martin is gonna ask .
Charles Martin himself will be coming out to prove he’s a worthy champ after winning the belt in a fairly damp squib fashion with Vyacheslav Glazkov having to retire in the 3rd round with an injury to his knee for the vacant IBF title after it was stripped off of the real champ Tyson Fury controversially . The guy’s record suggests he has something with 24fights,23wins and 1 draw so I don’t think he’s to be took lightly .
For me this fight is interesting at best, hardly gets the heart pumping , it’s another “let’s no push AJ to hard” whilst asking for box office £ . I don’t think Anthony Joshua will be to troubled and think Martin will do well to see the half way mark, just hoping we see a good test of AJ’s credentials and chin so he can move onwards and upwards belt in hand and a ever growing reputation .
