He said: "You’re just using up emotions and he’ll learn from that. Once he’s in that mode, he’s a nasty, horrible man in that ring. Outside the ring, one of the nicest guys you could meet, inside it – horrible."

Also, the Group Managing Director of Matchroom Sport spoke on the issue. He said: "He [Joshua] will learn [from the fight]. There were little things, in the ring before the fight Vitali was staring at him, then he started staring at Vitali and all that’s designed to do is use up energy."
