Think about Savon and Camarelle for a second, who got their dreams shattered by at least incompetent but probably corrupt judging. Most get only one shot at a gold medal.
My issue is with people doubting Joshuas ability and potential as a fighter. losing to Savon and Camarelle narrowly bodes well for any fighter, especially one thats only been boxing for 3 years.

Don't get your knickers in a twist because your in love with Anthony Joshua, it doesnt mean everybody else has to be. The Oympics was a fix, I'll wait and see what happens when he reaches the pro ranks thank you.

Audley Harrison won gold once upon a time.

At this moment in time, I believe Anthony Joshua has all the gear, but no idea. Thats not to say he cant improve and have an idea.

I'll be happy if he succeeds! And I won't be bashing him until we see what he can do at Pro level.

Now tell me and the world Jonsey, why the f*ck you know about boxing? Because many people on here just think you are a smart arse cunt who thinks he knows it all.
your not waiting and your already bashing him.

Audley Harrison is a completely different scenario to Anthony Joshua. Its silly to compare them.

I guess it is, because Audley actually deserved his gold medal.

Unless your mystic meg Jonsey, you don't know how good or shit Joshua can be. Nobody knows, we will just have to wait and see. But so far, it doesnt look great, even if he is decent for 3 years.

I mean, Flintoff trained what, 6 months? And he was already world championship material in the heavyweight division, the division is that bad.

Audley still has a chance
And Kimbo Slice is becoming a top 10 fighter

if the only positive you can see about Joshua is his size, you obviously know **** all about boxing.

whether he won those fights or not, he wasn't stopped or outclassed against the best amateurs in the world after putting on the gloves 3 years ago. so he has already competed with, beaten or lost close decisions to the very best. so whats the purpose of staying amateur for 3 years (so he wont go to the 2016 Olympics....your a ****ing retard) to refight those guys?

you say he is not ready to be compete as a pro. so why not give him those 20-25 learning fights? as long as he is not fighting total bums whats the issue with him learning his trade in 6-8 rounders for 3 years before making a serious push?
was 4 years ago, maybe longer from what I've heard from some, . there's no getting away from the fact what he achieved was amazing though but it was still undeserved regardless of how quickly he rose to the top.

you keep saying this. he won the Haringey tournament in 2009, and won abas in 2010, he will have been in the gym at least a year before entering that so it wasn't 3 years.

anyway harrison was a phenominal amateur, didn't make the grade as a pro. a lot of guys have won the Olympics after 5 or 6 years that I can think of and let's face it, in a year or two Joshua may be the best amateur but now he isn't

aye i agree with that, he got a crazy amount of hype, obviously it was an uphill battle to live up to that but no doubt he's a top prospect. he didn't earn the gold or mbe but hey, a lot of ****ers get handed the good life without lifting a finher so I can't critisize him that much.

cunt actually blocked me off facebook because I said he robbed savon though
