“That's the thing about boxing. In the heavyweight division, you only need one punch. You always have to keep looking for the best. For me, I don't know if I've reached my peak. I just keep working day after day.

Who knows where this will take me. Imagine in five years I won't be fighting anymore. Everything will be said and done. So now I want to make the most of it,” Joshua said.
