After seeing Anthony Joshua’s latest destruction of supposedly his sternest test Gary Cornish; it seems time to fast-track the heavyweight prospect to the next level.
The 6’6 giant from Watford is set to face arch rival Dillian Whyte in December in what again is being billed as his biggest test to date.
I’m sure we all remember not too long ago we we’re singing the praises of David Price as the British saviour of the Heavyweight division, but given his shaky form he seems to be fast becoming another also-run in a mediocre division.
At the moment there seems to be realistically one man who can give Joshua credibility and a taste of the next level; one David Haye.
He has been inactive since twice pulling out of fights with Tyson Fury due to injury but if his body can handle a good training camp; the Hayemaker has the power, speed and ring nouse to give the big man some serious problems.
Joshua is of course more mobile that the giant Nikolai Valuev who Haye beat for his heavyweight crown many moons ago, but coming up from Cruiserweight he is used to being the smaller man in the fight.
The likelihoood is that if Joshua does vanquish Whyte with the ease of his previous roster he will be pinned with Dereck Chisora, who is rapidly becoming a gatekeeper fighter.
It would be a fascinating contest, and Haye does now how to sell a fight, with his charisma and Joshua’s ability this could be a contest for the ages. After Fury vs. Klitschko this is definitely another heavyweight fight for fans to get excited about.
