This is going to be an epic battle. Anthony Joshua, the current IBF Heavyweight Champion and one of the most-talked about British sports stars on the planet, takes on American boxer Dominic Breazeale at the O2 Arena in London on June 25 at 5pm EST. You’ll want to see every vicious punch, so watch the live stream with us.
He’s the most-talked about British sports star since David Beckham, and is expected to become a global superstar, but this is 26-year-old Anthony Joshua‘s toughest fight. Defending his IBF Heavyweight Championship belt for the first time, the British boxer goes toe-to-toe with Dominic Breazeale, 30, in the ring at the O2 Arena in London on June 25
Anthony had all the Brits heralding his name when he won his championship belt against Charles Martin back in April. He was irresistible in the ring, combining brute strength with quick movement to outsmart his more cumbersome opponent and knock Charles out, but this is an entirely different fight.
Dominic is a giant at 6’7″ and will be reliant on his jab to score points against Joshua. But that doesn’t mean he lacks a killer punch that could frighten the British champ. In fact, Californian-born Dominic has won 15 of his 17 fights by virtue of knockout and is unbeaten in his professional career.
Needless to say, you’d think Anthony, who boasts a record 16 wins from 16 fights, which includes 16 KOs, would be a little nervous before his first title defense… WRONG!
“It’s just another fight – we just happen to have a belt,” he told a press conference on June 24 in London, looking super-relaxed. He added he was hopeful of securing “an explosive KO and entertaining everybody,” and that’s just what a champ should do!
