With ruthless punches and mountainous athletes going after each other, heavyweight boxing is one of the most exciting sports on the planet. While heavyweight boxing is incredibly exciting to watch, it is just one of many sporting events where attractive odds and boosted bonuses are available. In fact, you can bet on heavyweight boxing all season long – especially on popular fights such as the one we just witnessed between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz.
But as enticing as heavyweight boxing can be, sports betting extends far beyond just one particular fight. We understand this, and through the draftkings promo code you can check out the full range of events for yourself. Of course this includes heavyweight boxing.
Heavyweight boxing has gone through a bit of a crazy year really. Ruiz destroyed Anthony Joshua in the summer, showing to the boxing world one of the biggest upsets of all time. Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury had an absolute war at the very end of 2018, with a questionable decision in favor of Wilder. So with all this hype and change, we wanted to explore whom the best boxing heavyweights really are as we head towards the close of 2019.
2019's Heaviest Hitters
- Anthony Joshua
Despite his surprise loss to Andy Ruiz Jr, one cannot deny the fact that Anthony Joshua is an absolute animal in the ring. Plus, now we really know that he can box smart and avoid getting clocked…so he's a dual threat. When this man connects with one of his punches there aren't many that can stand tall and continue to fight back. Standing at a monstrous 6ft 6 inches tall, this isn't a boxer that you want to anger! But there is one major question mark hanging over the head of AJ right now, and it will define his career – where does he go from his Ruiz rematch?
- Deontay Wilder
After dispatching of Tyson Fury at the end of 2018, Wilder has also knocked out Luis Ortiz just last month in what was a thrilling match up. He has had 43 fights and can boast a record of 41 knockouts; now that is some scary stuff. The American stands at an enormous 6ft 7 inches tall, and many boxing fans are absolutely crying out to see a fight between Wilder and Joshua. Will it happen next year? We sure hope so, as it would be an absolute classic. First, he has to try and solve Fury.
- Tyson Fury
‘The Gypsy King' as many know him has enjoyed fame and popularity throughout his career. He is an incredibly down to earth guy and is certainly not afraid to speak what is on his mind, which fans absolutely adore – especially when he engages in trash talk with Anthony Joshua. Just like the two fighters before him in this list, Fury can be absolutely deadly in the ring, but more so as a pure technician. He is a “heavy hitter” indeed, as a practitioner of the sweet science. And…Who could forget his seeming ‘rise from the grave' moment against Wilder back in 2018? This guy’s heart in the ring is just incredible, and he simply refuses to lose.
There are rumors spreading throughout the boxing world as to what 2020 could have in store regarding fights between these three greats. We really hope that these matches get arranged, and we will certainly see some fireworks when the fights do happen.
