Hagler Believes Joshua Can Be Biggest Star In Boxing

Former undisputed middleweight champion, ‘Marvellous’ Marvin Hagler claimed that Anthony Joshua is one of the biggest superstars in boxing and has the opportunity to be even bigger.

Haggler told reporters at the Laureus Awards in Monaco recently, that Joshua and his team need to be patient, and be sure not to rush his growth,

“I think Anthony’??s got a great shot, a great future, as long as they don’t rush him too fast, you know, that’s the only problem.”

“Right now I think that he (Anthony Joshua) is the new superstar in the boxing world,” said 63-year-old Hagler.

Hagler was struck by Joshua’s ability and tenacity when he fought and beat Wladimir Klitschko in 2017.

“The fight there with Klitschko, I hated to see anybody lose this fight because I like Klitschko, but Anthony’s the future.”
