Anthony Joshua Admits His Mistake Made Him Feel Like A Novice
7/8 /2017

Anthony Joshua has told the media that he felt like a novice after his fight with Wladimir Klitschko got reviewed by his trainer Robert McCracken

The British had gone through 11 rounds to possess the WBA 'super' and IBF titles back in April and McCracken took time to criticize his mistakes in the fight.


Anthony Joshua is expected to make his next title defense against Kubrat Pulev after the unexpected retirement of his intended opponent Wladimir Klitschko. 

"It was like I was a novice,"said Joshua. "We ticked the entertainment factor, but from a coaching point of view there was a lot of mistakes made, and a lot of things we could do better, and that's what he looks at.

"He was straight up: 'Yeah, great, whatever, but that was four weeks ago; we've got to start preparing for the next three years. Not only are there tougher fights in front of you, there's other people gunning for you to beat you, so you've got to get serious'.

"'You've got to get back on it now. Your left hook was bad'. I was still living off the adulation, thinking: 'What? This guy's taking the mick'. But I'm over it now."

Anthony Joshua is now to face Pulev in a date and venue yet to be fixed.

"The confirmation of the fight will come from us," he said. "The best thing I've done is maintained; you can have a rest and feel worse than you did while training.

"I actually feel decent because I've been ticking over. I need to improve, get better, and the only way to do that is keep training, sparring."
