Ukrainian cruiserweight Serhiy Radchenko (5-0), who shared the room with current IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua in Wladimir Klitschko’s training camp before Kubrat Pulev fight, said that Joshua is really good, intelligent and humble guy.
“Anthony Joshua is very intelligent guy. Most of black guys in Klitschko camps, especially American guys, were extremely noisy. But Joshua, unlike them, is very polite, smart and sensible guy. And very humble, considering that he was already very popular then after winning Olympic gold medal” - said Radchenko.
Serhiy also revealed what happened in the ring when Klitschko sparred Joshua.
Former two-time world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, who recently turned 41, finds not only negative but also positive sides in his age.
“I didn’t like my 20s at all because you’re young, you’re successful but there’s a lot of concerns and unknown parts about yourself,” he said. “Also, in certain ways, insecurities. Even if you look strong and you knock everybody out, there’s certainly insecurity as well. I didn’t really like my 20s. But I do love my 30s and 40s so far. It’s not a definite disadvantage. It also has a positive side.” - Klitschko told Boxing Scene.
