Anthony Joshua Vs Michael Sprott

Preview, Prediction and Betting Tip.

British Heavyweight prospect and Olympic Gold Medallist Anthony Joshua looks to keep a nation dreaming with an emphatic win over Michael Sprott this weekend, but in all honesty this fight probably won’t be much of a test for Joshua. Still its more experience and learning for the young Watford man. 

Sprott has had a decent career winning a European title but he is now 39 years old and is a 64 fight veteran at the back end of his career, but still domestically he is probably one of Britain’s better heavyweights. Only last year he managed to crown himself winner of Prizefighter. 

Still I believe even a Sprott in his prime would really struggle against Joshua here, AJ really looks the real deal, a ripped 236 pounds with devastating power and a calm and collected demeanour to boot. At 25 years old Joshua has it all to become a world champion. 

This fight will surely bring reminiscence to when Sprott fought Britain’s last Olympic heavyweight gold medallist Audley Harrison and upset the odds knocking out Audley in 3 rounds, but I think we all know Joshua is a different breed. 

No one has made it past 3 rounds with Joshua to date and I think Sprott will be no exception but he does bring plenty of experience so who knows maybe he can break that mould and take Joshua into the 4th round for the first time. 

This isn’t really a fight appropriate for a serious bet with serious stakes, Joshua is just evens to KO Sprott in the 1st round and I think it probably happens. However the odds do get tasty as the rounds go up, Sky Bet have Joshua 13/2 to win in the 3rd round and 12/1 for him to win in the 4th round, I think those odds are good enough to have some fun with. 

Prediction: Anthony Joshua KO 1 

Boxing Tipster’s Bet: £5 on Joshua round 3 13/2 Sky Bet, £5 on Joshua round 4 12/ Sky Bet.
