Anthony Joshua v Dominic Breazeale: Preview & Prediction

By Stephen Donatelli for 'The Boxing Glove.' 

Defending IBF Heavyweight Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist Anthony Joshua should get past the Dominic Breazeale this Saturday night at the O2 Arena in London, England.  The undefeated Joshua,  nicknamed 'A.J.' is currently (16-0, 16 KOs) and boasts a lengthy 82-inch reach. In his last bout, 'A.J.' sent Charles Martin to the canvas with a straight right and from there on, it was academic. While the Trash talk has mainly came from the 6' 7” Dominic 'Trouble' Breazeale, but the also very tall 6' 6" Champion, has been doing his best to tune it out.

Breazeale is (17-0, 15 KOs) has a pretty good punch, but his last opponent, Amir Mansour, sent him to the canvas, and almost had Mr. 'Trouble' out of there. I will give credit to Dominic for facing adversity and coming back to win the bout in the 5th round. Most boxing fans look at this as simply a stay-busy fight, and while that does serve purpose as the rest of the Heavyweight Division gets sorted out, Joshua is simply too smart to overlook even Breazeale. Look for this fight to have a fan-friendly feel to it, but when the cream rises come the 3rd or 4rth round the Champion, Anthony Joshua, will remain undefeated and defend his IBF title with pride!
