Famous promoter Eddie Hearn made a frank confession

Commenting on Anthony Joshua's (27-3, 24 KOs) readiness to fight former UFC champion Francis Ngannou (0-1, 0 KOs), Matchroom CEO Eddie Hearn recalled the British boxer's fight with Wladimir Klitschko. The promoter admitted that Joshua didn't really know what he was doing in the fight with the Ukrainian.

"He was a pretty naive AJ, which made him very dangerous, but at that stage, he just had strength and heart. And good fundamentals," sportingnews.com quoted Hearn as saying.

Eddie noted that now his ward is a more versatile fighter.

"His defense is much better than it was then. His footwork is a lot better than it was then, but that's what made him interesting back then because he was still young... not a rookie, but he was very, very inexperienced," Hearn summarized.
