This past Saturday night at the O2 we witnessed Anthony Joshua take out the IBF title holder, Charles Martin, in the 2nd round.
The AJ hype train has been gathering pace every time he knocks out someone ready made for him.
It's difficult to pair him with heavyweights who have some degree of movement, because there isn't many around but what if he did fight someone with good footwork?

Step forward 'The Hayemaker' David Haye. In my opinion, Haye's superior speed of hand and foot would be too much for the new IBF World Champion to handle.
Put into the mix that he also has knockout power in both hands, and the Olympic gold medalist will be dancing around like Bambi on ice within the first few rounds. Joshua's hands are low, his footwork far slower than Haye, and, just as Dillian Whyte showed, he's there to be hit and hurt. You don't want to be giving the former WBA champ those opportunities.
The good thing for AJ is that Haye is not bringing too much to the table at the moment so he's easy to avoid and Matchroom knows that they're better off holding out for as long as possible for him to age even more.
Anthony Joshua's career has, until Haye returned this year, taken place while the elder of the two has been out injured.
You can't buy experience and Haye has bucket loads compared to the younger man and, like I say, tie that in with the former Unified Cruiserweight champions superior skills inside the ring, it's lights out for Joshua I'm afraid.
The talk is that once Haye and AJ get their next two fights out of the way then they will get it on. It'll be a massive spectacle but don't expect it to last long.
Who are you backing in a Joshua vs Haye tussle?
