Lennox Lewis Gave Joshua Last Minute Advice To Win

Anthony Joshua revealed how some advice from former world champion Lennox Lewis helped him storm into the Olympic super-heavyweight final at ExCeL on Friday and guarantee Great Britain's boxing team their most successful Games for over a century.

Not since 1908 have four British boxers gone through to gold medal matches but Joshua followed the earlier lead of Fred Evans and Luke Campbell - and Thursday's historic triumph by Nicola Adams - to dispatch giant Kazakh Ivan Dychko 13-11.

Joshua said: "I saw Lennox when he came to watch Nicola and he told me to back up with the jab. He started throwing jabs and shadow-boxing, which was great. He gave me some advice and I took it with me into this fight."

Lewis' hint proved a golden one as it was Joshua's lightning left hand which made all the difference over three cagey rounds, with the pair locked together through two before the Londoner's cleaner work in the last saw him home.

Lennox should be training fighters, he's got too much knowledge and too many skills to let go to waste. That guy gets in the training game, he'll be a major player. I bet he could make a lot of fighters world champs.
