Is Joshua too robotic and slow to beat Deontay Wilder?

I give new British heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (15-0, 15 KOs) full credit for beating his chubby fellow countryman Dillian Whyte (16-1, 13 KOs) by a 7th round knockout last night in their pay-per-view fight on Sky Box Office, but the win really did nothing to change the perceptions that fans have about Joshua as far as him being slow, robotic and having stamina problems.

The victory also didn’t change the minds of this writer that Joshua is still too robotic to beat a 21st century athlete like WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder or even some of the other top heavyweights in the division. Like I said, I give Joshua full credit for beating Whyte, but honestly that doesn’t mean jack to me.
