Hearn Claims Joshua To Come In Lighter
Following comments about potentially being too “muscle bound,” Anthony Joshua is looking to come in a more lighter fighter against Joseph Parker on March 31st.
Eddie Hearn in a conversation with SKY Sports, claimed that Joshua is looking good heading into his unification fight in Cardiff.
“From the day after his Takam fight, all he has been thinking about is how he can improve, get a bit leaner, improve the jab, improve the footwork. He is obsessed with improvement.
”I watched him spar 12 rounds last week. His footwork is so much better – he is gliding on his feet, he has got faster hands. He is so meticulous in camp, like nothing I’ve ever seen.
”He is lighter and started camp earlier so they aren’t having to exhaust him. He is working hard, but much smarter. So far, this is the best camp he’s had. Coming in lighter, he feels great.”
Hearn claims Joshua is currently at 245 pounds, as opposed to his last fight against Carlos Takam in October, 2017, where he walked in at 254 pounds, and five pounds lighter than when he fought Wladimir Klitschko in April of last year.
