Heavyweight boxing depends on big rivalries, but it looks as though the impending Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko fight will provide drama in the ring only.
That much became apparent at a press conference ahead of the fight between the two heavyweights at Wembley on April 29, where neither fighter seemed to have a bad word to say about the other.
Just look at this: no tension. Nothing.
Some fans enjoyed the refreshing change of pace.
Nothing to see here, folks.

Does the fight lack charisma? Does it matter?
On the face of it not a hugely charismatic couple of guys but I am fascinated by Joshua. Gives so little away. #joshuaklitschko— James Gray (@jamestingray) December 14, 2016
For some it’s lacking a bit of edge.

Once these two step in the ring however, there will be no shortage of entertainment.
