There are plenty of reasons to be excited about boxing in 2019 with some of the world’s hottest names gearing up for major fights.
Anthony Joshua – and the rest of the boxing world – was left stunned by his defeat to outsider Andy Ruiz Jr in June, and he will be gunning to reclaim his belts as soon as possible in a rematch.
