Joshua revealed what Ibrahimovic told him before the fight

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has encountered boxer Anthony Joshua just a few hours before the fight with Carlos Takam.

Two days after the victory over Carlos Takam, British boxer Anthony Joshua has told what Zlatan Ibrahimovic told him in that meeting.

Joshua said Ibrahimovic had a phenomenal mentality and he liked the Swedes’ advice.

“He reminded me that I have said ‘I’m not perfect, but I’m trying’. Then he said ‘No, no, no. What you have to say is “I’m perfect, I’m not trying,” Joshua told Sky Sports.

In fact, Joshua is perfect, having won 20 out of 20 fights.
