Former member of the coaching staff of Vladimir Klitschko, Sergei Gorodnichev, who was responsible for the sparring partners there, admitted that in the Ukrainian fight against Anthony Joshua he hoped that the Briton would stop after the equator of the fight.
“I just thought that Joshua wouldn’t go the whole distance. It seemed to me that his muscles were sour, because he’s good, that after the eighth round he would fizzle out, and Volodya had to take it apart. But he was wrong, it happens. that I went through all the preparation with him, from start to finish. How could I be insecure if I knew that sparring was 100% ready? It happened. How could I say that he would lose?
To beat such a champion – it always opens even the tenth breath. Life is different in the ring. We all listen and speak from the side, sofa experts. And you go into the ring – life there is completely different. It happens that a round lasts forever, but you went out and did not notice, “said Sergei Gorodnichev in a live broadcast of the Boxerskaya Pravda resource on Instagram.
We will remind, Gorodnichev also named the probable reasons for the defeat of Klitschko in the fight with Joshua.
