Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko's press conference was outrageously polite

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?

For some it’s lacking a bit of edge.

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