Anthony Joshua Has Fallen

"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,"

By Mother Goose

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again.

Since the comeback defeat of Wladimir Klitschko, Anthony Joshua has been placed on the pedestal as the standard. Touted as the heavy weight King, he has been able to duck the majority of the tough competition in his weight class. Not fighting Deontay Wilder right away is one thing, I mean who wants to fight someone who you know has the power to give you permanent brain damage.

However, not making a fight with Tyson Fury is suspect. You would think one would want to sort out who is the best in the U.K, before traveling across the pond to face the best America has to offer.

Now with the recent beating he has taken from Andy Ruiz, one must pose the question" Is Anthony Joshua another hype job?

This would not be the first time boxing has done this to its fans. For example for years we were told that Manny Pacquiao was a threat to Floyd Mayweather Jr's throne, 2 minutes into the fight we realize Manny did not even deserve to be in the ring with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

They fed us Gennady Golovkin for years, and then Kell Brook went up in weight and expose him. Winning the fight easily until he was stopped with a eye injury. Triple lost his "Boogie Man" status and slowly started to deteriorate with Canelo Alvarez basically bullying him in their last bout.

Has Anthony Joshua been added to the long list of boxing hype jobs?

More to blame than Anthony Joshua for losing his heavy titles to a Fat Joe look alike, is Eddie Hearn.

As Joshua's promoter he shouldn't have protected him form the tough fights. Coddling him did nothing but make him fragile under pressure.

Now he has fallen and there is no certainty he will ever put himself back together again.
