Joshua Would Like To Get Advice From Klitschko, Lewis

ANTHONY JOSHUA will seek the advice of Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko after a stunning pro debut. The London 2012 super-heavyweight gold medallist turned Italian Emanuele Leo’s legs to jelly with his jab, then crushed the Italian with a combination after two minutes and 47 seconds.

After his first-round win, the 23-year-old will be back in action in Sheffield on October 26. Joshua now wants to speak to former world heavyweight champion Lewis and reigning world No.1 Klitschko as part of his continued ring education.

He said: “They are the main men and they know what it takes to get there after winning an Olympic gold medal in the same division as I did.

“Lennox told me it’s all about hard work and he’s right. There’s no point in having talent if you don’t put the hard work in.

“This is just the start and I’m going to crack on now. I don’t want to promise things I can’t deliver. I don’t want to talk much trash.

“I want to back things up. It’s going to be a tough road and hard work but I’m going to put the work in.”

It took Joshua 14 months to make his professional debut after winning gold at London 2012, but promoter Eddie Hearn has a busy schedule lined up.

The Watford heavyweight could fight three times before the end of the year.

Joshua’s fellow London 2012 gold medallist Luke Campbell also enjoyed a first-round win, stopping Darlington’s Neil Hepper.

Wladimir Klitschko admitted he did not provide value for money despite knocking down opponent Alexander Povetkin four times in Moscow.

Klitschko, 37, earned £11m in the second-richest fight in heavyweight history after winning on points 119-104.

BIG difference between this and what Tyson fury had to say about Lennox and Vlad recently! IMO, Joshua could get tips from Fury on making his interviews a little less predictable. In the ring, he looks exciting. Put him behind a mic, and it's ... yawn. Worth remembering that Fury is only a litt...

Joshua seeking advice from Lewis & Klitschko shows his hunger - I don't care how good the advice is. I really wish Steward was still around, if he wants to stay this side of the Atlantic, McCracken is the only trainer I'd want him with.
