He’s an elite amateur boxer, that type of elite amateur boxer messes up guys like Joshua because there’s too much movement and feints and all that stuff.”

“Joshua needs to pick up the pace a little bit, just a little bit, not a lot. He has a lot of potential… he can do a lot, that’s why he is never a lost soul. He is still learning, that’s why he is the dangerous Joshua, because he is still learning, ”said the American.
