Anthony Joshua: Record, KOs, height, reach and everything you need to know
All Anthony Joshua's key professional statistics ahead of potential fight with Tyson Fury in December.
Anthony Joshua could soon be taking to the ring again as talk continues about a potential super-fight with British rival Tyson Fury.
What would undoubtedly be one of the biggest fights of the decade would represent another tough test for Joshua, off the back of successive losses to Oleksandr Usyk.
The 32-year-old had only lost once before his meeting with the Ukrainian and now has something to prove again ahead of his possible fight against Fury, which has a proposed date of Saturday 3 December.
Joshua, over the last year, has faced the first real barren spell of his career. After his rise to prominence in 2013, the Brit swept aside every opponent.
He earned a fight against Kevin Johnson at the O2 Arena in 2015, and by the end of that year faced Dillian Whyte, beating his compatriot by TKO and catapulting his career to the next level in the process.
Wins against Charles Martin and Dominic Breazeale followed, before Joshua faced the imposing, towering Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley in 2017.
Another high-profile victory meant Joshua retained the IBF heavyweight title, and won the WBA and IBO heavyweight titles.
Joshua retained all three until his 2019 fight with Andy Ruiz Jr, who inflicted a first career loss on the Watford-born heavyweight. Six months later, though, Joshua won a rematch to regain his three titles.
Then came the Usyk double, both hard-fought contests which went to 12 rounds. Usyk won by decision on both occasions and Joshua was left to reflect on back-to-back defeats.
Anthony Joshua: Record
Joshua’s record stands at 24 wins and 3 losses.
His first professional fight was a TKO win against Emanuele Leo in London, and he followed that up with three more TKO victories.
In his ninth fight, Joshua beat Russian Denis Bakhtov to win the WBC International heavyweight title.
From 2015 until 2019, Joshua was unstoppable, beating Gary Cornish for the Commonwealth Heavyweight title, Whyte for the British Heavyweight title, Charles Martin for the IBF heavyweight title and Joseph Parker for the WBO Heavyweight title, as well as his memorable win against Klitschko.
Anthony Joshua: Knockouts
Joshua has won almost exclusively via knockout throughout his career, with 22 of his 24 victories the result of a KO or TKO.
Only against Parker (UD) and Ruiz Jr. (UD) has he won by decision.
Joshua’s power and athleticism make him a formidable prospect when opponents tire, and only the best competitors have avoided a KO before the end of round 12.
Anthony Joshua: Height
The 32-year-old is listed at 6’6” tall.
Anthony Joshua: Reach
The former heavyweight world champion has a 82” reach.
Anthony Joshua: Weight
Joshua typically weighs in around the 240lb mark, though his most recent scale showed a slight increase up to 244lbs.
Anthony Joshua: Next fight
Joshua has accepted “all terms presented” for a fight with Tyson Fury on Saturday 3 December, his management team have announced.
The proposed bout between Britain’s leading heavyweights could take place at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff - the only major UK stadium with a retractable roof.
