Was this earlier case also cannabis-related? There are idiots inside and this is when you realise what you are dealing with in prison.
I was on remand in Reading for two weeks. It could have been 10 years. Joshua shakes his head bleakly at his narrow escape but then brightens. But I was on tag for over a year and that helped. I became so disciplined when I was on tag. I started reading because I learnt that so many champions educated themselves. People who do crime do it for reward.
Through crime your ambitions are low. And I enter them polite and humble.
And yet I like the fact Joshua has not swapped his council house in Golders Green in north-west London for a swanky penthouse. So I am doing more investments rather than buying luxury things. You can make a lot of money in boxing — but you have not come from an educated background. I chatted to him as much as possible.
I wanted to see how a champion operates and I achieved that. I also got to showcase some of my skills. When I last spoke to Klitschko he was effusive in his praise for Joshua — both for his prowess between the ropes and his maturity outside the ring. Klitschko told me he had no doubt Joshua would follow him as the dominant force in the heavyweight division for years. But Wlad, who has an Olympic medal and is the second-longest-running world champ after Joe Louis, can give me these unbelievable props. The Ukrainian is 39 and it is surely unlikely he will still be fighting in another 18 months when Joshua may be ready to challenge him.
You know boxing. A great world champion and the new prospect would be a huge fight. My gut says it will definitely happen. What makes a champion great is how he dethrones the guy before him. Look at Mike Tyson against Trevor Berbick and how he crushed him. You have to rip the title away from him. In order to become a great you have to beat the current champion in totally dominant fashion.
