There has been a hot rumor running within boxing social media about a bout happening between newly crowned IBF Heavyweight champion Charles Martin and rising British heavyweight prospect and 2012 Olympic gold medalist Anthony Joshua. The roots of this rumor stems back to an February 5th post on ESPN’s boxing page by Dan Rafael reporting that representatives for Martin reached out to the representatives of Joshua about a bout on April 9th at the 02 Arena in London. Since then, rumors are negotiations are happening to make that bout happen with word that an announcement is imminent from Eddie Hearn, President of Matchroom Sports and the promoter of Joshua. Here’s a discussion between JokerBoxing44 and EJ Boxing Live discussing a possible showdown between Martin and Joshua.

Will this bout happen and if so, is it too soon for Joshua? Or is Joshua so talented that his ability transcends his relative inexperience? And is Martin a fighter that we are all overlooking? Either way, this has sparked quite the discussion and it’s a wait and see what comes out from all the talk. If it happens, it’s a bold move for both Martin and Joshua with ramifications across the Heavyweight landscape.
