Anthony Joshua MBE and Dominic Breazeale both predict KO wins in their battle for Joshua’s IBF World Heavyweight title when they go head-to-head in ‘The Gloves Are Off’ this Sunday at 7pm on Sky Sports 2 and at 10.30pm on Sky Sports 1.

The 27 year-old made his long-awaited return to the ring in Glasgow on May 28 and did so in style with a third round stoppage win over Gary Cooper. The Olympic bronze medal star can now build towards title fights in the exciting Middleweight division, and the fan favourite is looking forward to meeting up with his old Team GB teammate Joshua.
LOS ANGELES (June 8, 2016) – Undefeated World Ranked Heavyweight Contender and 2012 U.S. Olympian Dominic “Trouble” Breazeale (17-0, 15 KOs) participated in an open media workout at Crossroads Boxing Gym in Ontario, Calif., on Tuesday afternoon ahead of his world title challenge against IBF Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua (16-0, 16KOs) on Saturday, June 25 on SHOWTIME BOXING INTERNATIONAL® from The O2 in London, live on SHOWTIME.
Joining Breazeale at the media workout was his trainer Manny Robles.
It seems just about every active heavyweight out there wants a piece of IBF champ Anthony Joshua. The unbeaten star has added a new buzz to the division and other fighters, young and old, want an opportunity to beat him in what would be a big event of a fight (with a substantial payday to go right along with it of course). Next up for A.J, in his maiden title defence, is unbeaten Dominic Breazeale, who gets his chance on June 25th.
(Credit: Matchroom Sport) LONDON (May 4, 2016) – Undefeated IBF Heavyweight World Champion Anthony Joshua and unbeaten American challenger Dominic Breazeale had an intense face-to-face meeting on Wednesday before a contingent of major sports media outlets in London to formally announce their June 25 showdown. The two were joined by SHOWTIME Sports Executive Vice President & General Manager Stephen Espinoza and Matchroom Sports President Eddie Hearn, as the executives announced Joshua’s new exclusive U.S. television deal. All four participants later took part on a teleconference with U.S. media.
Highlights from today’s press conference at Hilton London Syon Park and teleconference are below.
Joshua (16-0, 16 KOs) will make the first defense of his heavyweight title against Los Angeles’ Breazeale (17-0, 15 KOs) live on SHOWTIME at the sold-out The O2 arena in London. The heavyweight showdown is the first of a multi-fight licensing agreement for Showtime Networks Inc., to be the exclusive U.S. television partner of Joshua, the 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist from London.
Heavyweights Anthony Joshua and Dominic Breazeale came face to face at a London press conference earlier today, and both unbeaten fighters had plenty to say about their upcoming June 25th fight. Joshua will make the first defence of his IBF belt against fellow 2012 Olympian Breazeale and far from overlooking the unbeaten but largely untested (the same could of course be said of A.J) 30-year-old Californian, Joshua said he sees himself as the underdog going into the fight.
Anthony Joshua will make the first defence of his newly acquired IBF heavyweight belt on June 25th, as fans know, against unbeaten Californian Dominic Breazeale. The fight will go out on Sky Sports, almost certainly on Box Office, and promoter Eddie Hearn is currently working on getting a good under-card to support the main event a number of fans think will not last too long. Joshua, a genuine star in the making, blasted Charles Martin inside two disappointing rounds to take the belt he now holds, and some people fear a similar result will be witnessed on June 25th.
MGM´s Martin Murray has secured the fight he was aiming towards; he will be fighting George Groves in a domestic clash like none other on 25th June at the O2, London, live on Sky Sports Box Office. He will be chief support to Anthony Joshua’s IBF world heavyweight title defence.
Can Dominic Breazeale put up a better showing than Charles Martin did when he fought new heavyweight star, and new IBF champ Anthony Joshua? That’s what people are asking now that “Trouble,” as the unbeaten 30-year-old is known has landed first crack at the belt A.J so ruthlessly and effortlessly ripped from Martin on April 9th. Another questions is, can Breazeale possibly do any worse than Martin did?
ANTHONY JOSHUA 1/20 TO BEAT DOMINIC BREAZEALE IN FIRST TITLE DEFENCE – 1/10 TO WIN BY KO
William Hill have made Anthony Joshua a 1/20 shot to win the first defence of his world IBF heavyweight title on the 25 June. The Watford native will face unbeaten American Dominic Breazeale (9/1) at the O2 in London – the same venue where AJ won the title with a second round stoppage of Charles Martin on 10 April.
