Joshua To Take Molina Fight Seriously

Nigerian-born world heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua, has said he will take his title defence fight against American Eric Molina more serious than expected.

According to reports, Joshua has continued to “trained with the mindset of facing Wladimir Klitschko” ahead of next Saturday fight in Manchester. The world champion’s initial title defense against Kilitschko‎ was aborted with another meeting expected in 2017.

Joshua’s team are not ready to leave any stone unturned as they invited Rob McCracken, the British Olympic team coach, who turned Joshua from a neophyte boxer to a gold medalist at the London 2012 Games to be part of them.

McCracken is expected to play a major role in Joshua’s victory due to his record of success with the Nigerian-born alongside regular head trainer, Tony Sims.

The 27-year old  is expected to defeat  Molina in three or four rounds to retain his International Boxing Federation belt next weekend. His opponent however, also has a  record of 25 victories and three losses, which Joshua will not take lightly.

However,  Molina, ahead of the fight, said “I will hit Joshua harder than he’s ever been hit and if he dances, and I can get him hurt, I will not sit back, like I sat back with Wilder”
