ANTHONY JOSHUA has been selling out stadiums and performing in big fights for years now.

But on December 12, AJ will fight in front of just 1,000 fans at Wembley Arena in his first bout of 2020 – and the coronavirus pandemic.

But it should be just another day at the office for the Brit superstar, who is becoming a bigger boxing legend with every fight.

What is Anthony Joshua’s record?

Anthony Joshua’s professional boxing record is 23-1, with his sole loss coming against Andy Ruiz in June 2019.

Joshua has 21 knockouts from his 23 wins, with fights against Joseph Parker and Ruiz Jr going the distance.

What world title belts does Anthony Joshua hold?

Joshua first became a world champion back in 2016, when he won the IBF title from Charles Martin.

The Watford-born star then added the vacant WBA and IBO titles to his collection when he knocked out Wladimir Klitschko in 2017.

AJ then picked up the WBO world title from Parker in 2018, beating the New Zealander in a cagey affair in Cardiff.

Joshua lost all four belts to Ruiz Jr and was stopped by the Mexican in the process, before winning them back on points last December.

Who has Anthony Joshua beaten?

Joshua was a highly-touted prospect from the moment he turned pro, when Eddie Hearn signed him to Matchroom.

He raced out to 12-0 before taking on Kevin Johnson at the O2 as the main event in 2015, knocking the American out in the second round.

Then came Joshua’s first big pay-per-view night against Dillian Whyte, knocking the Body Snatcher out in the seventh round.

Since then, Joshua has performed solely on pay-per-view, with the majority of his fights being contested in packed stadiums.

Joshua has picked up big wins over Dominic Breazeale, Eric Molina, Klitschko, Carlos Takam, Parker, Alexander Povetkin and Ruiz Jr.

When did Anthony Joshua turn professional?

Joshua turned professional back in 2013, a year after winning gold at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

The 31-year-old was sought after by numerous promoters but ultimately signed a deal with Hearn and Matchroom.

Joshua has remained with Matchroom and Sky Sports in the UK ever since.
