Former world cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew commented on the victory of British Anthony Joshua in a fight with American Jermaine Franklin.
“I think he was calculating and patient. I won’t lie, I wanted to see the knockout but in the end Joshua didn’t get it because he was patient, thoughtful and alert.
I just spoke to Derrick James. He urged Joshua to step on the gas. Anthony will do it next time because he will have more faith in his coach and trust him. Trust comes with time, not suddenly. Joshua spent only eight weeks with this man.
His gas tank was great today. The fight did not take place at a low pace. It was a reasonable pace for a heavyweight. Joshua hit the jab very well, he improved his body work. I liked his deceptive moves. The main thing is that this evening brought Joshua a lot of positive. His confidence level rose. He will come back stronger,” Bellew said.
