Hi, just droping by from the East Side Site. There's a lot more Brits there so we talking about Joshua a bit. He is the real deal imo, 6'6 245. Amazing speed and freakish atheltic abilities.

He said he is watching tapes of Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko trying to learn from them on how to fight like a SHW. There's really not that many ATG Super Heavyweights other then Wladimir, Riddick and Lewis. I think Joshua's ceiling is really really high and he could go on to do great things.

With the home crowd behind him, I feel he's gonna win gold.

The reason the odds are so good for everyone is because they're in the same category as Toledo of Cuba and Vasyl Lomachenko of the Ukraine.

Lomachenko being a big favourite and rightfully so. Good luck if you bet, probably worth a few quid like.

Is Joshua seriously favourite?

I feel physically sick with the amount of hype this kid is getting. He'll have done really well to even medal, let alone win the gold. So much expectation on him already and he's not even been in the sport for a few years.

Might put something on Campbell.

Joshua is one of the two big favorites. Him and Mago, some sites got Joshua ahead because it's London obviously.

The reason he is getting hyped and will get more and more if he do well is because he's a 6'6 super heavyweight who's also British.

Right now the boxing world is talking about Floyd and Pacquaio and all of that, but people know that historically it's still the heavyweights who could end up being the biggest stars. A 6'6 British superheavyweight is too big of an opptunitity for British boxing not to hype.


I know people like to say well look at Harrison, he was an Olympic Bust. Well tbh, if you watch Harrison in that Olympics he displayed nothing special. The Olympic Version of Wladimir or Lewis or Riddick Bowe would have schooled Harrison pretty bad.
