Anthony Joshua Wants Eight To Ten Fights in 2014
By Edward Chaykovsky
Olypic gold medal winner Anthony Joshua (3-0, 3KOs) is looking to at least double his ring output in 2014. The 24-year-old heavyweight prospect turned pro in October of last year. Joshua is viewed as one of the brightest hopes for the new age of heavyweights. He returns on February 1 at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff against Dorian Darch (7-2, 1KO).
“When I competed in the Olympics I wasn’t half the fighter I am today and I’ve still got much further to go. I want to fight eight to ten times this year and if I can level out my progression at a rapid rate towards the end of the year, I will get a better British ranking," Joshua told Daily Express.
“I can be as good as I want to be, but I have got to let my fists do the talking. I want to bring the smile back to British boxing and to heavyweight boxing."
