Anthony Joshua sparks debate, asks who has best chin out of himself, Fury and Whyte

Anthony Joshua posed a question to fans on social media late Wednesday night, comparing himself to Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte.

The unified heavyweight champion wanted to see how people think he stacks up against his British rivals in terms of their respective chins.

Joshua’s post on social media

AJ posted: “Who has the better punch resistance? The names below are who have put the fighter down.

“Fury – Neven Pajkic, Steve Cunningham, Deontay Wilder, John McDermott.

“Joshua – Andy Ruiz, Wladimir Klitschko.

“Whyte – Joseph Parker, Oscar Rivas, Anthony Joshua.”

In truth, AJ made a mistake in this post as McDermott never knocked Fury down.

Wilder knocked Fury down twice in their first fight

He then followed it up by posting pictures of own his two knockdowns against Ruiz and Klitschko.

And added the captions: “I’m not perfect, but I’m trying.

“Never let success get to your head or failures get to your heart.”

Ruiz repeatedly knocked Joshua down

Although he has been put down by the lowest number of different fighters, AJ has suffered the most career knockdowns in total.

He has been put over five times – once by Klitschko and four times by Ruiz Jr.

Fury’s been down on four occasions – once by Pajkic, once by Cunningham and twice by Wilder.

Whyte has been on the canvas three times – once each by Parker, Rivas and AJ.

Joshua knocked Whyte out

Fury is the only one of the three who got up to win (or controversially draw) each time.

Joshua recovered to knock Klitschko out, but was stopped by Ruiz Jr.

Whyte survived his scares against Parker and Rivas, but was knocked cold by AJ.
