Things We’ve Noticed:🤔 Anthony Joshua’s Ongoing Quest For Respect Within the Boxing Realm of Fans, Plus the Balancing Act of Star Power and Acceptance

Unified WBA/WBO/IBF Heavyweight Titlist 🥇🇬🇧Anthony “AJ” Joshua (24-1-0, 22KO👊) has everything you could want as a prizefighter – true power, an Olympic Gold-Medal, world title belts, skill, fan appeal, and true star-power within the sport right now, that is only eclipsed by 🇲🇽Canelo Alvarez. Despite having all of those blessings at his disposal, you can’t help but to feel that something seems to be missing from the overall equation to 🪢tie everything together – and Joshua knows himself what that component is…and that is a lack of respect from pundits regarding the manner in which he handles his business, despite the victories.

The “86” represents those Gold-Medalists that won gold, and the “46” represents fights in which those Gold-Medalists couldn’t turn it around, losing yet again to the same boxer – all of that amounting to a solid 65.2% success rate for amateur boxers of that creed.
