    Has anyone noticed this ? When Joshua gets hurt the tongue comes out, the goofy smiling starts. i have never seen any fighter do this before. Is something wrong with him ?

    Could be a defence mechanism or could just be he's enjoying himself.

    Boxers take 1000's of punches, he may just have gotten used to it.

    People usually have that reaction when they hate getting hit.

    Trying to put on a front that he’s not hurt, which is how you know he’s hurt

    He knows that he's about to take a good nap and is anticipating the moment.

    Perhaps the bodybuilder can't form a frown because he only has 4 brain cells. Either that or he just accepts that he's about to go to sleep


    I can't wait when Usyk renders him unconscious and rids the world of the hypejob for good.

    All the other bums are anticipating Joshuas journeymen debut, he shouldn't keep them waiting

    People are being harsh here, boxers are in front of millions of people getting hurt for our entertainment, they have big egos

    Cut them some ****ing slack ffs.

    Just look at the **** Fury and Wilder do in relation to their egos.

    He's sheepishly smiling out of embarrassment.

    Lots of fighters do it. It's not just an AJ thing. It's just bravado.

    How are people being ‘harsh’? They’re just answering the question

    His eyes don't say bravado. He looks sheepish while doing this.

    Razor Ruddock used to smile everytime he got knocked down, when he got asked about it one time his response was "Well it's better than crying"
