Anthony Joshua takes on Daniel Dubois on September 21st.

The British heavyweights collide at Wembley Stadium in what will be Dubois’ first defence of his new IBF heavyweight crown.

Dubois has amassed an impressive 20 stoppages in his 21 wins and is widely known as one of the division’s biggest punchers.

In the past Joshua has shown vulnerability and has been hurt in multiple fights against the likes of Wladimir Klitschko, Andy Ruiz Jr. and Dillian Whyte.

But his long time promoter Eddie Hearn has defended his ability to take a punch.

“AJ has a really good chin. If you go back to the Klitschko fight, watch these shots that AJ took from Klitschko in round five,” said Hearn when speaking to SecondsOut.

“Watch the right hand that would have decapitated a normal man that AJ got up from. In the Ruiz fight, he kept getting up.

“Usyk hit him with the kitchen sink, and he never had him out. His legs were never gone. He was knackered at the end, but look what happened to Tyson Fury. You never saw AJ like that. He [Joshua] got hit hard by [Alexander] Povetkin, and obviously, he got hit hard by Dillian Whyte.

“AJ has got a great chin, but Daniel Dubois hits very hard and if you get hit on the chin by him, there’s a chance you’ll be in trouble.

“I don’t get the whole, ‘He’s fragile.’ He got hit hard by Franklin. I know he’s not a massive Puncher, but they can all punch. Franklin, Usyk, Povetkin, Parker, Ruiz. The list goes on. Dillian Whyte, Wladimir Klitschko, he’s fought everybody. There’s nothing wrong with AJ’s chin, but these boys can all crack. If they hit clean, it’s going to be a problem.”
