Read more on Anthony Joshua and his visions that he will Knockout Wladimir Klitschko…
In an interesting interview with GQ’s cover-boy for April, Anthony Joshua reveals that he’s “not superstitious about it, but I have a feeling that it will happen.” Wladimir Klitschko will get knocked out!
When asked on who will win the Joshua vs Klitschko fight:
“I think I will knock Klitschko out. I’m not superstitious about it, but I have a feeling that it will happen in a slightly unexpected way. It will be something like a counterpunch that will finish it. It won’t be quick… It will take time because he is so experienced and he isn’t easy to hit. But I will find my opportunity and I will take it.”
Anthony Joshua explains what it feels like to knock a man out:
“Oh… It’s amazing. I just love it, man. And the thing with me is that there is no remorse. When I hurt someone it annoys me when they [the referees] don’t let me finish them. Honestly! Because that is my job.”
Joshua weighs in on the rumors that whilst sparring he was knocked out by amateur Lawrence Okolie and badly rocked by 19-year-old heavyweight prospect Daniel Dubois.
“In my code, the fighters’ code, it is not good to talk about sparring. If someone invites you to spar, they are inviting you into their secret camp, their inner circle. So I don’t think it is fair to betray that trust by talking about it… I don’t go in there to prove a point. If anything, I like to take more punishment because that is how I learn about myself. What is the point of going into sparring and beating everyone up, when in a real fight the tables might turn and I don’t know how to handle it? I want to practice what it feels like to be hit and hurt. You have to learn how to defend, to be slick when the punches are raining down.”
