Anthony Joshua: Lennox Lewis is a clown, no respect for him

Former world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua reacted quite sharply to the criticisms of his compatriot, the undisputed world champion in this weight, Lennox Lewis. Earlier, Joshua already noted that Lewis’s words about the current boxers are too much negative, but now he spoke even more clearly.

“Lennox is a clown. “I don’t respect Lennox,” Joshua said in the AJ: The Untold Truth documentary on Sky Sports, and replied to the objection that Lewis left an outstanding legacy. – So what? So do I. Lennox and I are different. My legacy is to relax and enjoy the way the next generation makes its way to the heights, and not get into their business. Just appreciate what it costs to get to the top. Lennox is not like that. We are made from a different test. ”

Lewis in response to this suggested that this story that he allegedly envies Joshua, is specially hyped by someone from the team of the ex-champion.

“I’m disappointed with the words of Joshua, but I understand that this story with“ envy ”was inflated after my criticism of their negotiations with Wilder. Suddenly I became a hater. Think about who benefits from such a primitive story? Not Joshua, and not me, ”Lewis wrote in social networks.

Joshua also admitted that now he does not think about the title of absolute world champion, but focuses on returning his champion titles in rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr.

“I don’t think about that anymore,” said Joshua. – I had 22 fights, and they said that I can become an absolute champion. What would I do after? Boxed with Otto Wallin? Thoughts about the absolute championship seemed to say that I was already at the end of my path. I became a champion, combined titles twice, and now my goal is to become a two-time world champion. When I reach it, I can think about becoming an absolute champion. ”

“I watched this video in the morning. Strong old man, holds a blow well. Took a hit like a champion, ”Miocic said in an interview with Fight Hub TV. – We do not know what exactly happened there. Everyone drank there, so I don’t know. I’m not justifying anyone, but we don’t know all the details. There are always two sides to history. ”
