Barry and Eddie Hearn sit down together and go through the biggest fight they’ve ever promoted in Joshua vs Klitschko this weekend.
Barry and Eddie Hearn know a thing or two about boxing promotion it’s fair to say. Their show this weekend between Joshua and Klitschko is by far the biggest outdoor boxing fight of the modern era.
Pressure has been a key word when talking about this weekend’s fight. How will the less experienced Joshua cope with it and so forth.
Klitschko seems to have had a lot of the pressure drop off him in recent weeks and the odds on Joshua continue to drop – making him more and more of a favorite.
The pressure is off in a sense for Klitschko.
The world of boxing and indeed sport are all looking to see what Joshua can produce and if indeed he can be the new star of the heavyweight division that many have been waiting for.
He strikes me as a fairly relaxed character who takes things in his stride.
When he gets in there he has a killer instinct and his coach Rob McCracken will not allow any distractions to get to him this weekend.
McCracken is an underestimated man manager in my opinion. He helped UK warrior Carl Froch overcome confidence issues for many years early on into his pro career.
Pressure is for tires when it comes to the likes of athletes of the calibre of Klitschko and Joshua. This is what they’ve trained to do their entire lives.
