Default Re: So Matchroom are signing David Price ?

People forget how young Joshua is. If you want to argue about who he should have beaten or he should have lost to, that's fine, I'm sure we can all agree he has been lucky on a couple of occasions. However, the fact he isn't getting blown away by the best amateurs in the world is a testament to his ability. Everyone was saying Dychko would wipe the floor with him but Joshua won that fight clearly, and then he went on to fairly beat Cammarelle. Beating Zhang was impressive too. You could probably argue he deserved gold in the World's too.

The results of some of these fights are debatable, but the fact they are debatable is impressive. How many other 22 year old novices could go toe-to-toe with the elite super heavyweights in the world and maybe lose a fight by a couple of points here and there?

He's raw and he's a novice but crucially, he's only 23, he's improving and he's proven be able to mix with anyone in the world. There are things you can debate but if you can't see the upside to Joshua, you're deluded.
