Joshua: I Will Lose At Some Point
IBF, IBO, WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is realistic, and knows that at some point he will lose.
The undefeated British champion returns to the ring on October 28th when he faces mandatory challenger, Kubrat Pulev in Cardiff, Whales,
If Pulev falls to the Olympic Gold Medalist in Cardiff, it will set the stage for the highly talked about heavyweight unification fight with WBC champion Deontay Wilder. Wilder also has a mandatory challenger in his way as he faces Bermane Stiverne on November 4th in Brooklyn.
In an interview with Sky Sports, Joshua stated that at some point everyone gets a loss, especially in when it comes to the heavyweight division.
“History is there to be reset but I look at the all the fighters that I follow or admire and they were champions and then they lost, then had to come back and be champion…”
“Unless I have a miracle journey that we have never seen before, I just know that history has been written and this is what happens. There will be a time when I probably get beat and it’s up to me to come back and try to redeem myself.”
“That’s just how it goes in the sport. Everyone is like two-time heavyweight champion of the world, three-time heavyweight champion of the world because they once lost and had to bounce back.”
