    Uber reem and ngannou make a strong case. Hell even Ron Waterman was a specimen, but Anthony Joshua is just a freak on a whole different level. He's 6'6 and looks athletic AF. If he was an mm a fighter he would be the most physically gifted fighter of all time in the sport. Dude is unreal in the genetics and conditioning department.

    his best win is a 50 years old klistchko who lost 2 years before to an out of shape boxer, and joshua got knocked down while thegypsie king was never in trouble

    joshua suck and is overrated, the hw division is just terrible

    This isn't about his skill. Its about his genetics and physical conditioning.

    Of course he would be. It wouldn’t mean he’d be the best, but a physical specimen for sure. Specially considering his athletic pedigree.

    Have you not been around these forums long enough to know this thread will eventually turn into a Fedor discussion? Don’t ever count on people to stay on topic here.

    I feel like a lot of sherdoggers prefer bbc porn due to superior genetics.

    So good he whent into depression at the thought of defending his belt vs that same 50 old. Fury's a joker who's luckier than Rhaman to have ever won a title.

    Anyways on topic: what about that Jacked White Boy? Or Carwin had a pretty look too.

    Brock Lesnar was 6'3 & almost 300lbs, Joshua is 6'4 & 240lbs & is nowhere near the athlete. Obereem was 255lbs & shredded as fuark, you boxing idiots need to leave this forum.

    A 20 year old Joshua training MMA would be scary indeed. The issue that may come up is that for all we know he could never quite get the grappling/wrestling aspect down. For whatever reason, sometimes strikers can never become proficient in grappling and vice versa. Also, 4 oz gloves changes A LOT. One punch KOs are a lot more likely with 4 oz gloves, so it's less likely that he'd be as dominant in MMA even if he was great at it.

    Most likely he'll do great in MMA, but there is always the chance he doesn't become as great in MMA as he did in boxing.

    Why haven’t all these top HW boxers fought each other?

    So Joshua, Wilder, and Fury are all the best HW in the world?
