Anthony Joshua, a British-Nigerian professional boxer, has said he will take a little break from fighting in the boxing ring to give his mind a rest.
This follows his two consecutive losses to Ukrainian boxer Oleksandr Usyk in August, where he failed in his attempt to reclaim his world championships.
Anthony Joshua went on an odd rant in the ring following the rematch bout in Saudi Arabia, for which he later apologized.
He claimed that his strange behavior demonstrated how important the fight was to him and that he has been recommended to take a vacation from boxing in order to protect his mental health.
The former two-time world champion said,
“You saw after my last fight, it tore me apart,’
“I had so much riding on it, for me, the British fans, the undisputed fight, it just really tore me apart. So from a mental capacity, my close ones are telling me: “you should rest mentally”.
“Physically, I’m down to fight. I’m a warrior, I like this game, I like competing. But on a mental aspect, I think people have really seen it means a lot.”
