He recently had his say while speaking to Sky Sports News, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he wants to outbox his opponents henceforth, be it Usyk or anyone else, and that will continue to be his mindset from now on.
Anthony Joshua added that aggressiveness made him the boxer he is today, and he is not willing to lose that at this stage of his career.
His words, “I wanted to outbox my opponent, whether it was Usyk or anyone else; that was the mindset (in the first fight).”
“I wanted to outbox my opponent and on Saturday I want to smash my opponent. That’s just the mindset now.”
“I was amateur for three and a half years and I done a lot in that time and I asked myself how? It wasn’t down to the skill element, because I was outclassed in terms of skill and experience by a lot of my competitors on the world scene, but that aggression.”
“That will was something that couldn’t be denied. Then as you get more experience you try to develop as a rounded athlete. But ultimately, you can’t take your eye off the factor of what got you to where you are which is that aggressiveness.”
“It’s never really been lost. The path is always there. It’s not like I’m trying to rediscover a path. I always understand where that is. I just tried to be more elusive and add more strings to my bow.”
“I was focusing more on different things in my career, for example having a better jab, hitting and not getting hit. You’ve got to focus on that aggressive aspect, that competitive spirit and at the end of the day, I don’t give a damn about your jab, I don’t care how good that jab is, I don’t care how good this is. I don’t care how good you are – my competitive spirit will overcome all obstacles.”
“That is something you should never neglect in your search for improvements. Your competitive nature can take you a long way.”
