Former boxing star Carl Froch has sensationally claimed that Anthony Joshua would ‘probably get chinned’ if he met Deontay Wilder in the ring. Froch warned his fellow Brit to avoid a future bout with the American due to his hard-hitting style.

Joshua was outclassed and generally dominated by Oleksandr Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium back in September as the Ukrainian won on points to claim the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO world heavyweight titles in the process.

The 32-year-old was set to rematch the undefeated Usyk in the spring, but the champion has returned to his home country to lend his hand against the Russian invasion. 

With the conflict ongoing, it appears unlikely that AJ will face Usyk in the near future, and rumours of alternative bouts for the Brit are circulating.

Joshua could face compatriot Joe Joyce and the two former Olympians have verbally sparred on Twitter, while plenty of fans are keen to see Joshua fight Wilder.
