Default Putting things in perspective. Anthony Joshua started boxing in 2008. Only 40 bouts.

Anthony Joshua the Olympian winner received a lot of criticism because he clearly lost to Savon and arguably lost to Roberto Cam.


But let's put things into perspective here. There are a lot of major advantages working for him. His raw talent is undeniable, he only had 40 bouts going into the Olympics and started boxing in 2008.


Physical Attributes;

As of right now. he's already bigger than Wilder. Joshua is 6'6+ and 235+ Pounds. He will probably fill out to around 245+ of muscles. He seem to have a strong chin, taking a variety of punches throughout the 2011 Baku and 2012 Olympics and he definitely have agility and power.


Championship Round Mentality.


One thing that really impresses is the fact that he dominated the championship round against Zhang, Ivan and Roberto. This clearly shows and indicates a champion's mentality and that he rises in the face of adversity.

Ivan Dyachko the 6'9 Klit Clone literally melted down in Round 3 and got his face bashed around. Roberto Cam- a 34 year old helmet fighter also suffered a similar melt down from the massive pressure Joshua put forth.


Ceiling of Skill Cap.
The ceiling on him is basically sky limit. He is able to look like this in around 40+ Am Bouts and in 3-4 years of boxing. Imagine him with another 50+ bouts under his belt and at age 24 he should be 100% ready and twice as good as he current is. The improvement ceiling really is sky limit.

Overall, he's 22 years old, he got freakish physical attributes and he definitely have raw talent.

He's not the next Lennox Lewis, but he could very well be a super version of Frank Bruno. That's probably enough to dominate the Post Klittard Era

Nope. Amatuer not worth thinking about. Next olympics if he dominates and shows improvement then maybe so.
