Anthony Joshua Needs Regular Sex To Become A Heavyweight Legend Says Larry Holmes
Two-time boxing world champion, Larry Holmes says Nigerian-British boxing champion, Anthony Joshua needs regular sex to become a heavyweight legend.
Larry who is considered one of the finest ever after racking up a 69-6 record in a career spanning four decades said this while speaking at the launch of the TAG Heuer Carrera Muhammad Ali Limited Edition timepiece recently.
“If I had to give him one piece of advice it would be this – get laid a week before each fight,” said Holmes. “You need to relax. It restores your energy and everything. You know they say you’re not allowed to do that when you’re fighting.
“I listened to that for a while but then found out it was all a lie and you’re missing the good stuff man. He’s a heavyweight, he’s got to get that sh** out of him. But he doesn’t want to do it everyday or nothing because that might drain him!” he said
Joshua is currently putting the finishing touches on his preparation for Saturday’s clash with Carlos Takam at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.
The 28-year-old was supposed to be facing mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev in Wales but when the Bulgarian injured a pectoral muscle, Joshua had to deal with a late change of opponent for the first time in his professional career.
Takam, the Cameroon-born Frenchman, has different dimensions and a very different style to that of Pulev and Joshua says he now expects a ‘Tysonish’ opponent on Saturday night.
