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."

lets hope his hands hold out, and that he keeps getting some of those guys out of there early. that is a lot of professional fights and training camps, but it's doable. i like joshua. you don't teach talent. you…
