Pic: Boxer Anthony Joshua looks in slightly better nick than his opponent tomorrow night

We're not saying this is a mismatch but...

There is no doubting the fact that heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua is one of the most fearsome looking men in any sport, never mind boxing.

The Olympic super heavyweight champ has featured on these pages before, looking in insane shape before a fight a year ago.

Today the 6'7" giant was weighing in ahead of his first crack at a title, for the WBC International belt, against Denis Bakhtov tomorrow night.

Joshua was looking his usual self, with muscles rippling on top of every muscle and we think it is safe to say that Bakhtov was not looking quite so 'chiselled'.

Here's Joshua's weigh-in shot...

And here is Bakhtov's...

And here is the face-off

Face off

Bakhtov is clearly not in terrible shape, and the 34-year-old has a record of 38-9, easily the toughest opponent Joshua has faced to date. That said, if time in the gym is anything to go by, then Joshua's odds of victory at 1/33 look fairly on the money.
