“If I lost to one of the absolute best in the world – said the London 2012 Olympian – I would have to say that I am leaving because someone like that has beaten me? But what’s the point of saying things like that?”.

“If people really want me to leave, then that’s fine.

I’m not begging anyone – added Joshua -. People always ask questions and are entitled to their questions but, as far as I’m concerned, I still want to compete. I love it. It’s challenging, but I love the challenge. Sometimes I wonder if I want to do it, it’s so hard. It’s not an easy job but I have the will, I have the strength to keep pushing “. (ANSA).
