Anthony Joshua Intends To Remain at The Amateur Level

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

ANTHONY JOSHUA insists he has not had a single offer to turn professional – and intends to stay amateur next year.

The 23-year-old, who won Olympic super-heavyweight gold at London 2012, said: “I’ve not had any offers from promoters.

“It’s clear that I’m looking to stay amateur so they have left me alone. As long as you work hard doors will open and I want to be world amateur champion.”

The Watford boxer is set to fight in the amateur World Series of Boxing and hopes to be part of the British Lionhearts who take part in the competition, with bouts over five three-minute rounds.

Joshua also plans to take part in the amateur World Championships in Kazakhstan next October.

He said: “I hope to box next year, in either the World Series of Boxing (WSB) or AIBA Pro Boxing (APB).”

Olympian Anthony Joshua was talking at the launch event for the new DEWALT XR Battery Powered Framing Nailer. For more information visit www.dewalt.co.uk
