Ukraine’s Alexander Yosek says he is more worried about his son’s first days of school than taking a step against world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua in London on Saturday.
Joshua will wear his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts in the fight at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Both men won gold medals at the 2012 London Olympics, Joshua the champion in the super heavyweight category and the USC in the heavyweight division.
“I don’t think about Anthony Joshua at the moment,” The Sun quoted him as saying. “I don’t think about what he will do, what he will use or how he will box.
“Right now I think more about how my son feels at school because he’s just started first grade and he didn’t really want to go and do that.”
Osek, 34, is professionally unbeatable and has resigned as undisputed cruiser weight world champion. The WBO’s mandatory challenger went to London on Monday.
Joshua, 31, told Fight Broadcaster Sky Sports Television that he did not consider Yosk to be more of a boxer than his favorite weight class.
“All boxers can move on in weight. Some feel better in weight, they have more strength and feel fresh,” said the British, who has a professional record of 24 wins and one defeat.
“In my mind, I removed the notion that he was a cruiser weight.”
Joshua Youssef is battling after a planned British title match with WBC champion Tyson Fury in Saudi Arabia because it was canceled due to an American arbitrator’s decision to prioritize the match with Donte Wilder. Was given.
Anger is set to face Wilder on October 9 in Las Vegas.
