    My friend has come to visit me in Asia he owns an MMA website he has just had news passed that Joshua has been beaten up in sparring and is unable to fight.
    Sorry if this is fake news I've just heard it.

    Express is normally reliable and the guy I'm sitting next to is also very reliable.

    It looks like this might actually be true. There are a few articles about it popping up online in the past hour or two.

    Why should that surprise anybody? Apparently he consistently gets the hell beaten out of him in sparring.

    Are guys usually doing hard sparring this close to a fight?

    Usually no. But maybe it's just stories from the past few weeks leaking out now.

    Regardless, there is something wrong with Joshua’s trainers if he’s getting constantly knocked out or hurt in sparring. Last time could have been a fluke but for it to happen in two consecutive training camps is very concerning.

    Only when they want an excuse to back out.

    Joshua normally drops back to technical spars in the last few weeks too.

    I'm only telling what's been heard, this could be true as Joshua would be easy to hurt. But I'm only going with my solid source.

    Hell I do sparring every second day most weeks and I'm yet to have a bust nose let alone be KO'd somehow and I'm always sparring bigger and better men. What's going on with Joshua? Is he one of the most fragile and limited heavyweight champs ever?
