Just Another Reminder, Anthony Joshua's Right Hand Is Hard As F**k

Just Another Reminder, Anthony Joshua's Right Hand Is Hard As F**k

Watch out Carlos Takam.

How hard does Anthony Joshua hit? Fucking hard. Just ask his 19 opponents.

There's also a video where he breaks a punching machine. Yes, you read that right.

Ahead of Joshua's fight with Carlos Takam tonight, lets pause in a moment of quiet contemplation and take a trip down memory to relive the moment he broke a punching machine.

The IBF champion and his mate Troy Deeney were tasked with seeing who could punch the machine the hardest.

Being the pro, Joshua stepped up to the plate first. He delivered a BIG right-hand, notching a 797 score.

The Watford frontman then nailed the machine with a decent looking right-hand generating a score of 757.

Round 2.

The boxer then took a second swing. He hit the machine so hard, it failed to register a score. The power of Joshua, ladies and gentleman.

It looks like Anthony Joshua's fight against Carlos Takam will break a record set by Muhammad Ali back in 1978, as the pair fight in front of a record-smashing 78,000 within the closed Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

The previous record for an indoor boxing event was set by Ali and Leon Spinks in the New Orleans Superdome, when 63,315 fans turned up to see Ali's victory.

Joshua will be defending his heavyweight title at the biggest ever indoor boxing event, which was also the fastest-selling event the stadium has ever seen, according to organisers.

Promoter Eddie Hear said: "We've never seen anything like this in British boxing and we may never see anything like it again.

"This fight will be broadcast in over 160 countries worldwide."

Joshua is the heaviest he's ever been, weighing in at 18st 2lbs, while Takam is 16st 11lbs.
