Anthony Joshua vs Jason Gavern: Weigh-In Video

Anthony Joshua MBE says his injury layoff has made him even hungrier for success as he returns to action against Jason Gavern at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports.

“I was on a roll and there was great momentum, but I think I can pick that up again,” said Joshua.

Jason Gavern - Jason Gavern

Unbeaten heavyweight Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31 KOs) is taking seriously his opponent Jason Gavern (25-16-4, 11 KOs) this Saturday night in their fight at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

He’s still taking him seriously, because he realizes at the heavyweight level one punch can change the outcome of the fight regardless of how over-matched that fighter is. In this case, Gavern has respectable power, and could potentially pull off an upset of Deontay if he lands something big enough.
